    Sam has been stellar. I had a rough version of my book and she turned it into a polished, refined, and easily readable work of art. Her timing is excellent and she excels at sharing her ideas and suggestions and incorporating the many changes I requested. I will certainly use her again. She is the best Freelancer I have used to date.

    Hello! I noticed that you had such good reviews. I wanted to ask you to ghostwrite my ebook on emotional eating and sugar addiction. There are two books I know of that I want to use as a base. I can put the subjects up, and give you an idea of what each chapter will be about. But you will have to do the research and create great and unique content. My philosophy is that women crave foods out of physical and emotional reasons. I want the book to be great copywriting, an easy read,conversational, inspiring, light, with a coaching style. I am norwegian, so I will translate the whole book into norwegian when it is done. The title of the book will be (in english) &quot;FINALLY FULL.&quot; -How to finally ditch dieting, start loving your body and get the life you want.

    What I said in answer to the last question. I need the book proofed for punctuation and spelling. I am having it published by Xulon, and because of the cost of having it proofed by them, I wish to hire a freelance proofreader to do the job. I found you on the Internet and decided to contact you about doing the job. I am a Christian and my book is a Scripturally based book called, &quot;Celebrating the Simple Life: A Scriptural Look at Simplifying Your Entire Life.&quot;

    Hai madam My hobby is writing stories that&quot;s why i prefer this type of job

    Dear Ms Markham,I am searching for somebody to write a story, not a very long one, about 50 pages, not for commercial purposes, but for personal reading.I am using this service for the first time, so I don&rsquo;t know if I can discuss the payment before actually hiring you. If it&rsquo;s possible, could you please tell me how much approximately would such a story cost? The number of days to complete it doesn&quot;t matter.Sorry, I skipped the milestone and verification steps because it&quot;s the first time I use this, just to avoid any mistakes.I don&rsquo;t have many ideas about the plot, only about the characters. I would like it to be about childhood sweethearts of the same age who have known each other forever (since kindergarten, maybe even before) and are best friends who have a lifelong mutual crush on each other that soon evolves into real love. They classmates throughout the school, closest friends, and are each other&rsquo;s first and only love, first kiss, they have lost their virginity to each other. She is the most popular, smart and beautiful girl around, tall and athletic, cheerleader captain, prom and homecoming queen etc. He is a little shy, less popular, not too tall or exceedingly strong, while the girl is always cheerful and full of joy which she manages to transmit to her friend. She also teaches him to be more open to others. However, I would like the boy also to be able to help her in need, not being exceedingly weak and spineless, they must both be able to be strong when necessary and to support each other. Even though he is less popular than her, she doesn&rsquo;t mind hanging around with him and they love each other very much. His sister is also her best friend and often joins them to play and hang around together.But I would like this story to be purely romantic, not erotic. I wouldn&rsquo;t mind if there is mention of them making love and descriptions of kissing, but no detailed descriptions of sex and no rape or incest involved (the main characters are not related). Also, even though there can of course be problems to overcome for the characters so the plot can go on, but please only problems external to the relationship between them. I mean, their eternal love and loyalty to each other must never be put into any sort of doubt, no love triangles and no romantic or sexual relationships apart from with each other. The problems they have may be for example other children teasing them for being too close or later one of them having problems with the studies and the other helping (preferably the boy having problems and the smart girl helping him, I just think such a stereotype is cuter) . Or maybe, somebody of their families falls ill and they mutually support each other during these difficult times. Or, when they grow up and marry, they can experience financial problems. The important thing is that the central theme of the story must be the great love between childhood sweethearts lasting forever. Also, it&rsquo;s important for at least a part of the story being dedicated to the main characters&rsquo; childhood together and some character development would be nice if it&rsquo;s possible in about 50 pages. Please make a happy ending for this story, with the main characters marrying and having many kids. It would also be nice if there was some couple of their friends mentioned, who were childhood sweethearts also and married too, so the two families later encourage their children to play together, with hints at the end about many of them becoming childhood sweethearts as well, marrying and living happily ever after like their parents (maybe it&rsquo;s weird, but I absolutely ADORE childhood sweetheart stories with happy endings). Another thing: the characters should grow up together, never being separated for years like sometimes happens in such stories.I apologize for bothering you with such a strange request.
