Most people that seek me out these days for either critique or developmental editing. If you are stuck on a story or know a part is flat, I know how to help you fix it. Or if you have finished your story and want to know how it would do in the market, I can tell you. I am not just a writer, but a literary consultant. I know how to help you find an agent, get a line editor, or navigate the sticky ropes of self-publishing.

My rates start at: Critique: $2 per 1,000 words Ghostwriting: $14 per 1,000 words (please note that this is a starting price for a first draft, unedited work.) Editing: $25 per hour  less

    I will not blow my own trumpet | Why blow my own? When I get paid to blow my client's trumpet | Humour apart, that's what I do for living | Make noise, get attention and create attraction for my clients- through words that spur response | In this description, people normally state what they have always aspired to do | In my case I did it the Nike way | I just did it | Plan, Commit, Execute-simple | I cause change of heart and mindset shift for all my clients as they all want to stay unique | What makes all of us unique is a unique positioning with a message to reciprocate it | There is always something that differentiates us in the crowd | We just need to find it | I do that for you | A unique value that creates the difference | Sorry to say but unless a writer understands brand equity- it is hard to deliver all that expected uniqueness | I become the voice in their head | As I write with the wow factor | I don't write boring descriptions that bore visitors to death | I write content that seeks attention | Your visitors say, now that's what I wanted to hear | It holds and beholds | Anyone can write, like anyone can cry | But response is provoked by copywriters and singers | Now that you have come, wait | By the time you may decide- somebody else might have hired me | So hit the hire button now | To change the destiny of your business | Best bang for your buck | Top Up Your Potential | Tap Up Your Potential too | Choose a writer that programs your audience towards buying your offerings | Hold your horses | You just met the love of your life | No matter how much you love someone- unless you communicate it well enough, chances are you will never be able to get into any concrete relationship | Same goes with brands and products- particularly in online arena | Not only do you have to be well-spoken, but you need to be articulate with your words | That's what I do- my selection of words caste a spell on readers and they get hypnotised and magnetised drawn to your goods, services, ideas, places or any other commodity | That's how I have maintained 5 Stars over my 10+ years of advertising career | I have been doing it for a while now and you will witness it all happening once we start approaching your marketing communication with more potency and conversion techniques. Someone like me is an investment and not an expense. BMR writers are expense and it's like saving time by turning the hands of the clock. Ultimately, you require someone savvy enough to deliver you a holistic solution. A composition of research, marketing, copywriting and SEO will let you achieve the monetary targets you expect as ROI. When you hire a BMR writer- you are basically adding to your sunk cost. "At 60 miles an hour, the loudest noise in this new Rolls-Royce comes from the electric clock." | This is David Ogilvy (Father of Modern Advertising) Award Winning Caption of the Century | In the modern world of business, it is useless to be a creative, original thinker unless you can also sell what you create | Where is the writer in that? It is just about translating the features into benefits in a clever marketing driven way | Contrary to popular belief 90% of Copywriters are Accidental Writers | You do not require a literary virtuoso but a vision to make every form of advertisement part of your investment in your brand | These writers may be good at writing but since they do not have marketing insight, most of the advertising by-and-large goes unnoticed | I have an MBA and a PhD in Business Administration | I know the value of each word in marketing message | Think Loudly | Speak your mind | While I have a heart-to-heart talk with your client | Writing a good site doesnot need gimmickry | It requires technical brilliance to overview everything from a Chief Executive perspective pitching to the buyer | 80% sites on Google lack it | That is why, they merely become a showcase for the businesses | And not actually work as a business terminal or an online outlet | I create sites that talk the walk before you walk the talk | Today every website must project unique content to create a difference for every brand | Be it any business- your marketing voice has to be personal and personalised | It must depict the very character that your corporate image and brand identity possesses | This is very peculiar and requires years of practice and exercise to balance the fine line between revenue, image, value with unique differentiation | I am not only a whimsical writer but I have panache to define your exquisite advantage in a well-rehearsed and well-spoken manner | None of the writers on oDesk possess this differentiation | That is, the marketing insight, unbeatable ideas and yes writing virtuoso | Try me like the others who paid me thousands of dollars to let them create the millions |  less

    I am a BS Psychology graduate who have settled for a career shift in the virtual world for the last 2 years as a Virtual Assistant—tasked in writing, research, editing, proofreading, product listing, web-content entry, and other administrative support responsibilities. Past experiences may have me built a profession in community organizing and program implementation with an NGO for 5 years, followed by a vocation in Human Resources for another 6 years—yet, realizing the benefits of working virtually finally made me settle for online jobs instead. Nonetheless, these varied experiences reflect my versatility in diverse workloads & in situations which call for multitasking.  less
