Elance is a site I used to work on. I liked it fine. It paid better than lots and I had a chance to do some interesting projects. The last project I did on Elance was editing a glove box guide to car basics geared at women. There was a lot of back and forth and it was a thoroughly enjoyable project. I almost felt guilty getting paid because I learned a lot. When it was done, the author asked if I would like a copy and I said sure and gave her my address without a second thought. And, Elance booted me for having outside contact with a client. I get it. I agreed not to do that. But, this was not an attempt to get more work, I just had fun working on the book and thought it was nice to be offered a copy. Oh well, live and learn. You can still find me on Freelancer, Fiverr and Scripted.
Anyway, the Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide is a great idea for a stocking stuffer or a gift for a babysitter or any other woman you know that drives a car. It explains all kinds of things you should know in simple, easy terms. You can order a copy at Girls Auto Clinic. I get nothing from promoting this book. I like the author. I like the content and could really have used it when I bought my first car.
I just think it’s cool that I worked on a book and now I have a copy with a nice note from the author.
