    I am a published author who has been writing prolifically for years. My three-book Tori Salinas series, published by Price World Publishing, is available in eBook form through all major eBook providers. Feel free to visit the below link for a creative writing sample. http://www.amazon.com/kindle/dp/B007C6YHDQ I have also had a spin-off novella about Tori's cousin Joy, as well as a young-adult thriller novella, published by Price World Publishing, and three young-adult short stories published by Short Story Press. I have extensive experience in freelance writing, proofreading, editing, and blogging. I have successfully ghostwritten several pieces that have since gone on to be published. I have written for adults, young adults, and children, and have completed work on such varied projects as autobiographies, memoirs, book proposals, query letters, resumes, cover letters, articles, blogs, children's books, romantic short stories, and many more. Throughout my college career, I was awarded the distinction of having an extensive research essay published in ESSAI, a compilation of outstanding collegiate writing. I have independently planned and conducted a one-session college-level class for adults entitled "How to Write a Book," during which we discussed the basic elements of good writing, fiction, nonfiction, submission of work, and publication options, among other topics. I have worked as a summer intern in a professional capacity writing website bios for the staff of a prominent securities company. In addition, I have had three years of tutoring experience in the field of writing and reading. I have worked with students and adults of all ages, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds on developing those skills that are relevant to excellent written communication. I have taught Reading Readiness classes at my local YMCA, introducing the written word to children ages 3-7. I have also tutored lower-income children as a volunteer at my local World Relief program. I am interested in free-lance writing, editing, and proofreading work that can be done from home. I have a broad spectrum of writing abilities to bring to the table in both creative and professional writing.  less

    Let me first begin by introducing myself. My name is Lianne and I hold a dual degree in Marketing and Advertising. I've lived in the United States, Paris, Malaysia and Singapore. I am currently based in Taiwan and am looking to strengthen my freelance writing portfolio. Work-wise, I have held a myriad of positions related not just to writing, but also to that of public relations and marketing. My past roles include Publishing Editor, Editorial and Events Executive, and Events and Communications Intern. The most recent was that of Publishing Editor, which I held between December 2011 and February 2013. In a nutshell, my year and a half as Publishing Editor entailed me to write and edit all editorials, advertorials and reviews that were published in two print publications; a monthly magazine-directory distributed to 50,000 landed properties, and Station Map (a monthly tourist map geared towards tourists in Singapore). My time spent there has more than sufficiently schooled me in the myriad of ways to write articles and reviews that cover a broad range of topics, and of course, to head a publication.  less

    Every business has a meaningful story to be told. Finding meaning and expressing it is what I do. I am a meaningmonger or rather I am the meaningmonger. I am the only one in the world. Why? I coined that term, meaningmonger. Remember you first heard it here. Enough about what I do. Here's what I am not and what I don't do. 1. I am not the world's best copywriter. I try very hard to be. As the bard said, "Only a fool thinks he is the best, the wise man knows himself to be a fool." 2. I don't watch TV. I read (I didn't mean to sound like a snob but that's the truth), I think (and stare into space at the same time) and I get out a lot, watch people, eavesdrop on other people's conversations (I hear that's where comedians get their material. If it's good for funny people, I think it's good for me). 3. I don't waffle (sometimes also known as SEO), or write empty, meaningless stuff. Most people (not machines and engines) enjoy reading what I write. If you didn't so far, don't read any further. 4. I don't use spellcheck. I don't just use words. I use them meaningfully. More than a mere writer or wordsmith, I prefer to think of myself as dispensing meaning. Meaning is important. Words are not. (If you agree, read on.) ‘Are these fortune cookies?’ asked Jill. ‘Yes,’ said the waiter ‘with compliments from the chef.’ Jill broke open her cookie and frowned at the strip of paper inside. ‘What does it say?’ asked Jack. ‘It sounds cryptic and rude,’ said Jill. Jack took the strip of paper from her and read, ‘Be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless.’ ‘If I eat lunch like this every day, I will be formless and shapeless,’ said Jill. ‘It’s Bruce Lee,’ said Mark. They both looked at him with incomprehension. ‘It’s what Bruce Lee said,’ explained Mark. ‘Meaning if you flow like water, you will never get stale.’ ‘And I thought they were calling me empty-minded and shapeless,’ said Jill with obvious relief. ‘If you do this and that, what you will get is diddlysquat,’ read out Jack from his fortune cookie. ‘What does that mean?’ said Jill. ‘It means that whoever is writing these fortune cookies needs to be more tactful,’ said Jack throwing down the strip of paper. ‘They are not going to get repeat customers saying stuff like this.’ ‘There’s a message for you, Jack,’ said Mark. Jill looked at him askance. ‘Look at Jack,’ said Mark. Jack’s phone was wedged between his left ear and shoulder while typing on his Blackberry. Jill shrugged, ‘What?’ ‘He is multitasking,’ said Mark. ‘So?’ said Jill. ‘If you do two things at the same time, you can do neither of them well and hence you get zero results, ergo diddlysquat,’ said Mark. ‘I have to go,’ said Jack getting up. ‘Me too,’ said Jill. ‘See you later, Mark.’ ‘Don’t you want to know what my fortune cookie says?’ called out Mark as they left the restaurant. (If you want to know more about me, read on. If you only want to know what was in Mark's fortune cookie, scroll down to the footnote at the end.) Messages are nothing without meaning. Do you think that Jack or Jill will lunch again at the Chinese restaurant? It's unlikely unless Mark insisted on taking them there. It would be great to have more friends like Mark. It would make our jobs much easier. Unfortunately, the Jacks and Jills of this world outnumber the Marks. Fortunately, some of us know this and ensure words are used not just to fill up space or fortune cookies but to mean something. I've been using words and infusing messages with meaning for over 17 years. As a full-time freelance copywriter on oDesk since August 2012, I've written content for blogs, websites, copy for sales letters and response-driven direct mail content. I've also ghostwritten books in the fiction and self-help categories that have been successfully published and sold on Amazon.com. I focus on enabling advertisers, brands, marketers as well as individuals and entrepreneurs find a singularly unique and engaging voice to express their message in a memorable manner. I've been writing effective, persuasive advertising copy and marketing communications content since 1993. Before freelancing, I worked as a copywriter with international companies such as Qatar Airways, artobrand.com, gpradvertising.com, Kamerad-News and MAA-Bozell. So, when you hire me, you are not only getting an experienced copywriter who delivers quality but also content that is meaningful and makes relevant sense to the reader. 'Keep Smiling and everyone will wonder what you are up to.' That's what Mark's fortune cookie said.  less
