    I want you to shine. I truly do. Whether writing copy for you or editing what you have already written, I will engage your specific audience and make sure your text is organized, easy to understand, and flows well. Though I can write/edit in a formal tone, my preference is to use a more conversational style that really connects with people while still being professional. My best work is done with individuals, educational organizations, and non-profit organizations, as that is where I have gained most of my experience. Recent projects include: - book manuscripts - organizational newsletters - academic articles I have also worked with news articles, blog articles/posts, website copy, brochures, drama scripts, seminar transcriptions, and email copy. REFERENCE: "I have worked with Kari Otto on a wide variety of projects, ranging from creating thought-provoking pieces for curriculum to crisp, informative brochure and web site copy. I am consistently impressed with her insights and the command she has of her craft. Her writing is clear, colorful and well-organized. Kari understands deadlines and has established a record of turning around projects well within the agreed upon timeline. She is also a gifted editor, pulling together the ideas from a rough piece of copy and turning into more effective communication. Kari delivers all of this with the confident, helpful attitude born of experience. I recommend her without reservation!" Michael Boze Art Director/Communications Specialist  less

    I live in Barcelona, Spain, where I work as a part-time copywriter for a local tour company. I wrote more than 80 pages of copy for the site's recent redesign and relaunch. I also oversee the company's social media campaign, which includes Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

From 2010 to 2012, I was a reporter at The Villages Daily Sun newspaper, the fastest-growing newspaper in America.

Previous to the Daily Sun, I spent two years as a staff writer for the marketing department at Southeastern University.

    While I have a varied background of expertise and experience in writing, my preferred niche is in writing novels and novellas. I have 7 ghostwritten novels to my credit and 5 more in progress. My freelance clients rehire me for other series. I can turn around a 30,000 word novella of romantic suspense or mystery in 2 weeks if you have your own editors and proofreaders. I have an experienced and excellent in-house editor. If you want to use mine, the cost is slightly higher and it takes an extra 3 days, but you will receive an error-free, perfect syntax and sentence structured work. I am also willing to do longer works. I've had an intrepid, adventurous life, as well as a varied career, which gives me rich experience and knowledge from which to draw. I write (have written): erotica, romantic suspense, mysteries. I'm willing to write Westerns, Thrillers, Crime fiction, Historical fiction (this means anything from the Paleolithic up through the 1970's), Magical Realism. As all of my works are copyrighted and protected by confidentiality agreements, I can only send certain samples of my work. If you wish to hire me for a specific genre, I will gladly do a paid sample tailored for you.  less
