Search more jobs
Hi!  Thank you for checking out my job posting.

Executive summary...
PLEASE read the attached file AND the job description below, and then apply only if you are confident you can write something somewhat similar in terms of the feel / emotions, yet completely unrelated in terms of location and the exact scene that transpires.

Job Description
- A 750 - 1,000 word opening chapter
- Written from the male hero's POV.  He is 39 years old.
- Male hero should be: possessive, protective, territorial, muscular, big, and white (Caucasian).  A bit of a jealous caveman (at the right moments) is also good.  He should be an Italian mafia boss and can have tattoos.
- Written in 1st person POV
- Written in conversational American English / not proper British.  (Less formal, more contractions, different word choices, etc.)
- Setting of your choice

- Older man and younger woman (Approximately a 20 year age difference.)
- Heroines are always virgins.  Heroine's age is 18 - 22.
- Heroines are feisty, smart, and are definitely not pushovers although they are often shy, quiet, socially awkward, introverted, and curvy.  They should also be white (Caucasian) and often have blonde hair.

Frequently recurring themes and troupes
- Dad's best friend (almost always)
- Mafia "lite" (Italian, Russian, Irish, etc.)
- Men in uniform (police, fireman, NOT military, etc.)
- Men in authority positions (boss, professor, etc.)

- No "daddy" talk or fetishes, other than the taboo aspects of age and dad's best friend angle.

Story lengths...
- 12k - 25k words.  All lengths are "give or take" 15% and will be agreed upon based on the freelancer's comfort level and prior experience with short stories and possessive alpha heroes.  Typically best to start with one first story of 12 - 15k and then scale up if need be.  No padding of word counts, please.

Story specifics...
- Titles and a handful of beats that need to be hit will be provided.  The rest is up to you.
- Must be a story, just a basic one that establishes a connection is fine.  There must be a real connection between the characters.
- A bunch of supplemental characters aren't necessary.  For instance, you'd need a young woman, a man, that man's best friend (who happens to be her dad), and maybe the young woman's best friend can easily be enough.  (You don't even need the young woman's best friend.)
- Two steamy scenes per story regardless of length.
- Stories are over-the-top instalove (love at first sight) and written for a fun, easy read in colloquial speaking terms.  Some readers refer to them as "palate cleansers" that they read in-between heavier, longer books, when they're looking to read but don't want to think too much.

Future work...
- If your style is well-received there's literally an unlimited need for more stories as the brand is well established and needs at the very minimum a new story each week.  Three a week is better.
- If you apply and are accepted, and then your first chapter is approved, you will continue forward with the story.  First proper story will be for 12k - 15k words for $.02 per word.  I'm not greedy and am happy to pay bonuses for writers who provide high-quality work that is written to market and sells.  Cheap is always more expensive in the long run.  I'd rather overpay and have a handful of exclusive, exceptional talents.

- Stories must be 100% original and will be checked.  Pay is for all story rights, present and future in all forms.

Please put "Green Gummy Bears" in your application, so I know you read this.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your application!  Hope we can build a long-term working relationship together! :)
