I'm in serious need of mastering.

I am in serious need of mastering... and maybe in need of serious help for what I'm about to ask in this post. My wife and I have been working on a Pop/Rock album for almost a year and a half. I've finally motivated myself to finish mixing the thing, simply because we have been requested to send our stuff to someone at Turner Broadcasting. This could be HUGE. Or... could be nothing, but the person who has requested it LOVES our music. Some people would kill for the opportunity to be heard, and that is something we are guaranteed.

However, I really have to get the album mastered. It has to be as perfect as it can possibly be, because this may be our only chance. The problem is... yeah here comes the part where anyone reading suddenly stops and hits the Back button.... I have been unemployed for 2 years due to the recession. I'm going to be selling everything I can to get money. I also have a client coming into the studio next week who's gonna be paying me for some recording work, but that doesn't help me with money right now. My deadline is the end of next week, because I'm uploading all the songs on Friday for the lady.

Is there ANYTHING I can work out with someone here? I would say I'm so desperate that I'd get our album mastered by a kid with computer speakers and cracked software... but I'm NOT that desperate. It has to be right. But then again, people gotta get paid. So, maybe I'm just wasting gearslutz space with this thread.

Dear I am Challenged,

My name is Chris Neal, I am an Audio Engineer graduated from IPR (The Institute of Production and Recording. If you would like to look into me as a possibility I can be of service. We can look at a price after you hear a free mastered song.

If you would like you can look at my portfolio on my site.

Let me know, I will be sending the same message in a Private message. So I can be sure you receive it.

I look forward to hearing from you

If you are serious about your music, then send the Guy mixes without mastering,
if the song and the mix are good, the Guy will notice that, and he doesn't need mastering to say Yes or No,
then when you sign contract with him get back here, and I am sure you will find many people offering you mastered album up to 400-500 U$,
in a current situation, you will likely to receive offers 'you are asking for',
no offence though
