Hello! I'm Kenickie, I've been writing for nearly eleven years, starting from a very young age and I've also been doing photo editing for about seven years. I am willing to provide my services for a very low price. I am also a songwriter/music producer, but currently do not offer music production because it takes too much time to be done efficiently. I will offer my songwriting/lyricist abilities. I also specialize in voice acting, audio book production, book cover design, proofreading, and more. If you're not sure if I do something that you don't see here, don't hesitate to ask me.
