    I have written over 5000 articles on a broad range of topics. I offer proofreading, editing and writing services of a very high standard but at an economical price. I prefer flat rate jobs and am happy to negotiate fees, but have put a start fee in the box because you cannot leave it blank. No job too big or small. ***In case you are not from Australia (which is where I am ) you will notice I use Australian spelling unless I am otherwise instructed by a client. However, I can write equally well in US and UK English. I have never missed a deadline and have plenty of satisfied customers, including many who return again and again. Although I haven't done a lot of work in this site, I do have plenty of experience. Just ask and I can help you. My websites are http://ghostwritingspot.com and http://laurencewins.com  less
