    Editor of Fiction & Screenwriting

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago

    As an award nominated Screenwriter and with a BA in Creative Writing, I understand the editing and workshopping process is often where the magic happens! It can be the difference between producing something ordinary, to elevating your work the next level and setting it apart from the rest. I have experience with a variety of genres, ranging from gritty dramas and historical fiction, through to fantasy, and when it comes to editing, I believe that collaborating with the writer for a hardworking and productive partnership is absolute priority.

    It's been seven years since I took up the hobby of video production and screenwriting, and projects that started out as cool ideas with friends quickly turned into major quality productions. I started to take film making seriously in High School and am now a Junior at Emerson College in Boston, MA (Class of 2017) studying for a degree in Film Production, taking all of the skills I accumulated in my four years of High School and using them on a much grander scale.

    Screenwriter - Ghostwriter - Mentor -

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Portfolio: 8

    Screenwriter - Ghostwriter - Author - Mentor - Working with me on your Screenplay, Book, Treatment or Query will be the difference between mediocre and fantastic! It will also be the difference between success and failure in both the publishing and movie industry. As a Produced Screenwriter, sought after Ghostwriter and Published Author with over 30 years in the business, I can help you realize your creative dreams. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4792720/?nmdp=1 If you have an idea for a great screenplay or the next best-selling novel; I'm the screenwriter and author you want to work with. If you have an exciting new idea for that next great how-to or inspirational book to support your website or speaking engagements, then look no further! I work with publishers and producers on a weekly basis and while the most important thing is to have a fantastic Book or Screenplay written; no less important is getting that manuscript into the right hands at the right time - I can help you do that. Elance has recently merged with Upwork, but on Elance I had earned over $399,000. thousand dollars over a period of 13 years ghostwriting books, screenplays, treatments, queries, articles, E-books, and a number of other writing projects. I was rated in the top .25% with a 4.9 - 5.0 average rating. I won't be the cheapest with my bids, but I will be among the best! Keep in mind that if you were going through the WGAw, a publisher or my Agent; I'd have to charge you four times what I can bid here on Upwork. The book or screenplay I write for you will be highly sellable, not simply a manuscript that sits on a shelf somewhere and gathers dust. If you want one of those kinds of books or screenplays, hire the low-ball bidder. But if you want quality, professionalism, and assistance with finding a home for your project, then I'm your author. About Me Whether you are a struggling writer, novice, or just somebody who has a great story to tell, let me assist you in achieving your ultimate goal of book publication or movie production. I offer you much more than simply putting your words down on paper; I offer you the input, advice and assistance needed to take your project to the next level as well as my help with finding a publisher for your book or a producer for your screenplay. If you decide to self-publish, I can also assist you with that. I've also worked with a number of publishers and clients with the development of their self-help, business and inspirational books both hardback and E-Books. I've ghostwritten a number of these books which are being used by Motivational and Inspirational Speakers, Real Estate Agents and Investment Gurus to either piggy-back their seminars, support an online website or compliment their speaking engagements or businesses. I am a full time screenwriter, ghostwriter, and author currently under contract with Cine del Sol Productions. I have a number of screenplays I've written for this producer including Jr. Stunt Academy. http://www.cinedelsolproductions.com/cinedelsolproductions.com/Movies.html I just finished up a short movie, "Love me Haiti" which is based on a true story. You can find this movie listed on the IMDB and if you plug in my name into the IMDB database, you can find more work I've done over the years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnL73nvg1EQ&feature=player_embedded I also write adaptations both script to book and book to script. I work with publishers and agents on a regular basis. I ghostwrite books for many of their famous and sometimes infamous clients, so I specialize in writing true stories, memoirs and autobiographies and don't worry; I will sign a non-disclosure and confidentially agreement with you so everything we discuss stays between us. I've also worked with a number of Agents and Producers developing treatments, outlines and screenplays. I've worked as a script doctor as well as a proofreader and editor, so my experience and working knowledge in the movie industry is vast. My latest novel, "The Seraphim" was published in 2014. You can view some of the links below: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-seraphim-joe-vetromile/1118030571?ean=9781628548457 http://www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore/book.php?w=--457 I think my resume, track record and earnings over the years are a testament to the kind of writing I produce as well as the great relationships I have with all my clients. Elance has recently merged with Upwork, but on Elance I had earned over $399,000. thousand dollars over a period of 13 years ghostwriting books, screenplays, treatments, queries, articles, E-books, and a number of other writing projects.
