Just so you know I am hosting a contest over on Tumblr! All you have to do is write a story, fanfic or original under 10,000 words! It must be based off of "The Horror of our Love" by Ludo. More information can be found here: [link]

Hello! I am an editor, looking for some writing to work with! I was wondering if you would be so kind to let let your members know that I am available to edit their work! I charge $1 per page (market price is $2.50) and I read all kinds of work! Thank you for your help!
