    Every book has the potential to become a best-seller. My overall goal is to give every book the attention it deserves while making the Elance experience pleasant for clients. I treat every book as if it were a future best-seller. My experience as a published author gives me a unique insight into the whole process, which I am happy to share with all of my clients. Every time that I get to help people achieve their dream of publishing a book is a great day. This can be in the form of ghostwriting, polishing up a manuscript, or just converting the book into a Kindle, Nook, or iBook format. Dmcmillian_258 is an awesome contractor to work with. He's always prompt, courteous, and offers suggestions for improvements I might have missed. Have hired several times and plan to do so again. OR Did an excellent job for us. We highly recommend his services! Those are just two examples from hundreds of others. Want to be the next happy client? Feel free to contact me today.

    Italian native speaker, based not too far from Venice, where I help tourists getting deeper lost in the street labirinth :-) I am Maths and Riddles enthusiast: I began solving Sudokus in preparation for the competition, and participated in the Italian championship that year. That changed my life: now I own my puzzle company and I enjoy sharing my games to other puzzles fans. I am best known for the introduction of Sudoku & Dragons. I have developed interest in many "nerdy" things, like Rubik's Cube: my personal best is 39''. You can learn it in one afternoon!
