Friends, I have provided writing services to musicians, artists and other talented folks for over twenty years during which time, I have worked very hard to provide for my family. I continue to write and perform while holding down a full time job. I put the "free" in freelance. The writing and music that I offer takes a lot of time and research. Speaking of research, I have studied and compared rates. Please read the attributes of each service I offer. I know cash isn't the easiest thing to come by so I will barter. Send a private message to me- ernpick@gmail.com and let's talk. I have to pay for this site so yep, there are fees and barter options for most of my work. I cannot guarantee that you will like what I tell you. That's why I offer the personal critique. I will not publish an article about a recording that I do not believe in, therefore, no negative reviews published from me. Remember, all rates vary so don't pay a lot of attention to the listed rates. Those numbers are how the model works. Contact me at ernpick@gmail.com and we'll start from there.Thanks!

The Hurricane Line is a blue collar novel, a tragic comedy based loosely on factory that was once in Arkansaw. This story is based on true occurrences and splattered with fiction. It's about outsourcing and it revolves around the lives of several close knit factory workers plotting to save their jobs. A somewhat grotesque but happy ending. Loaded with music, comedy, tears, and tangents. Working on the final edit.
