    I'm an experienced freelance writer, having spent a little over four years working through Upwork. In that time I have mostly been focused on the romance genre, although I have ventured into other genres such as post-apocalyptic and mysteries. I am a versatile writer and pride myself on creating compelling stories no matter what the genre. I can write from an outline or develop my own plots using my endless imagination. I like to form long-term relationships with my clients and make sure to be available for communication as often as possible. Although I am based in the UK I am proficient in using American English. I spent some time living in America so I am aware of the colloquialisms. I have a wide variety of samples for perusal as well, in multiple genres. I hold a degree in Philosophy from the University of Canterbury. I have self-published my own e-books on Amazon as well, meaning that I am more than capable of editing and proofreading my own work. I have a real passion for writing and I believe this comes through in my work. I write quickly, and ensure a fast, reliable turnaround without sacrificing an ounce of quality.

    I have been writing since I was in kindergarten, and when I started to win awards for my stories in first grade, I decided I wanted it to be a career! I have done freelance tutoring in English and Creative Writing, and have been writing fiction and creative non-fiction professionally since 2006. I have published my own work in literary magazines and on blogs and other websites. I have also completed sixty short stories (1000 to 20,000 words) for commission. The written word is my passion and I love to create gripping and engaging stories in many genres!

    I am a published writer in the genres of horror, young adult fiction and fantasy. I have sold over seven thousand copies of my last book, and have been contracted to write several short story series. Recently, I have been hired to ghostwrite many short stories in various genres of fiction, including romance, horror, sci-fi and more. I have also worked on several film scripts. When I'm not writing (which is rare), I teach middle and high school English Literature, as well as drama and film. I have a successful creative writing course in Cairo, and have helped several writers find their niches and develop their work. Furthermore, I have over seven years of experience as a journalist and editor, my articles appearing in several local publications. Despite the constant work flow, I always feel the need to keep writing and reading, and that's where ghostwriting comes in! Allow me to work on your project and provide you with more than just a story!

    Let's be realistic. There are hundreds, and maybe even thousands, of excellent writers and editors out there. So, then, why me? I have found myself asking this question so many times that I have lost count. But then I remember where all this started. Sneaking books under the covers to read past bedtime, whispering to myself "just one more page", devouring book after book... Before I knew it, the passion had grown so huge that I could barely keep it at bay. Why me? As one of my favourite authors, E.M. Forester, once said, "one person with passion is better than forty merely interested".

    Hi, I'm Kenzie! I'm a content editor for a sleep health site and freelance writer by, well also day, because we all have to sleep at some point. My experience includes writing video scripts, blog content, informative articles, social media content, as well as a good amount of research-based work. I have degrees in Biology and Nuclear Medicine, and I am currently studying for my Masters in Teaching. While the vast majority of my educational and professional experience has involved a lot of academic writing, I would say that my skills naturally lend themselves to a more conversational style of writing. I believe that compelling storytelling is often the key to good writing. Whether it's talking about the importance of health management, discussing the effects of certain political policies, convincing someone to watch a new movie, or simply recounting a personal experience, a writer's job is to convince their reader that the message is worth their time and attention. While I certainly love writing, I know that being able to engage strangers on the internet is not a skill everyone shares. If that sounds like you, I would be honored to help get your message out, whatever it may be!

    Words and Ideas can change the world. A powerful sentence can stir you to your depths, and resonate inside your head-space for years. I aim to write what inspires, guides and enlightens people. The pieces I've enjoyed writing most are focused on personal development, psychology and esoteric wisdom. The 5 star reviews from some of the inspiring people I've worked with here on Upwork point to one thing: I love what I do, and it shows.

    To have made strangers laugh while alone on a stage, equipped with only what I have written...that may be what I am most proud of. I have learned creative writing through classes, I have learned screenwriting through classes. This is all valuable knowledge which I feel to be pertinent for a site like this. But I have also learned joke-telling and stand-up comedy through trial and error. An open mic night is perhaps the least forgiving setting because when people don't laugh, you hear it. You must learn to be able to grab people's attention quickly, hold onto it as long as you need to, and deliver as many laughs as you can. I have done stand-up in four different states and two different time zones and have always written all my own material. I make this point, not to brag, but just to display that my humor isn't regional. If you're keeping track, yes that is 8% of the states in the U.S, yes, that does make it sound more expansive than it is, and no that isn't necessarily impressive. I have many interests and areas of expertise, including but not limited to, sports, pop culture, hip-hop, entertainment, food, animals, and making any excuse to demonstrate my strong command of the time zones. Even areas in which I may not be as well-versed, I am always happy to research and write. I find myself researching topics all the time in order to have a better understanding. I feel it is important to always be wanting to learn more. I try to research and learn new things every week and never tire of it. I would be extremely grateful to be given the opportunity to work with clients here. I am eager to help people out with whatever they need, to showcase creativity, and to try to crack a joke or two where appropriate. Luckily, if I don't get a laugh, I won't hear it. Thank you for your consideration.

    If there's one thing that I've learned, it's that engaging content is what both the client and the audience wants. It doesn't matter how great a product or service might be if the material presented is dry and lifeless. It takes a certain skill to turn a potential sales into something more solid, and that's where I excel. Thank you for taking the time to look this over and if I sound like someone you'd like to work with, I'd love to hear from you.

    My specialization is in creative writing and employing my own personal narratives to share stories about the state of events in the world. I have more than five years of experience in this field for areas such as prose and poetry. I've also won several awards for my short stories including the Kaleidoscope Literary Award as well as having my work published on online platforms such as The Purple Fig. In addition, I've recently graduated with my bachelor's for English at the University of Calgary and plan to go back for a degree in Social Work after a year of work. Furthermore, I'm proficient in skills such as technical writing, grammar, copy-writing, and editing. These skills allow me to move between different forms of writing with varying levels of formality as needed. For example, I can proofread and write academic papers as well as fictional short stories or longer pieces. My skills are unique because I put my entire focus into the work I'm producing and guarantee the best results. Until you're satisfied, I will continue to work on the project. I truly believe that with enough work, ideas can be brought into the world and resonate with others. With my dedication, I know that I can provide an end result that is satisfying. More so, my degree has allowed me to master skills such as creative writing, academic research and argument, and global literature. These areas allow me to be well-versed in different fields and to also point out any issues that might cause you some trouble in the future. I'm also willing to ghost write and to help you bring your ideas onto paper. This could be through an outline or through writing itself. I take the time to make sure your work is polished and will leave an impact with future readers.

    These are the skills I can contribute to your project: Christian content development, editing and proofreading, and a speedy turnaround. Having studied at Kenneth Hagin's Rhema Bible Training Center, creating biblically correct, well-researched, and spirit-inspired content and services has become my specialization. I've written for websites, blogs, YouTube scripts, and online Christian magazines for over a decade, as well as editing material for people and Christian faith organizations. With three self-published books on Amazon Kindle, I know how to turn what's on your mind into a message that will bless your audience. Since early 2022, I've made my office virtual, allowing me to connect with incredible people from all over the world for whom I've had the pleasure of writing content with style and consistency. Individuals, corporations, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have hired my services for simple but profound information for the enlightenment and spiritual development of their audiences. I'm comfortable with research and interviews and a naturally fast learner. If you need engaging, error-free writing on short notice, I'm your man. So drop me a line and let's get to work!

    Hello, there! My name is Courtney, and I’ve held a variety positions over the years. I've spent the last 2 years writing and editing true crime media, and I've found that this is my true passion. Before my most recent endeavor, I held positions in the financial services industry over a span of 5 years. As a Loan Analyst, I was responsible for boarding large, commercial loans into a database used by a well-known, national bank. I loved the challenge of interpreting and comprehending the documents- probably due to the fact that I hold a Paralegal Certificate. I also spent a few years teaching English, remotely, to children located in China. Attention to detail and providing excellent work are two of my most treasured skills. I look forward to assisting with tasks where my expertise and experience can be utilized. The opportunity to work remotely and contribute to my family, financially, is so valuable! Feel free to reach out if you have a job in which you think I would be a good fit, or if you'd like to discuss a position, as well. I promise to respond quickly. Thank you for your time!

    I am a professional copywriter and scriptwriter; experienced in SEO and online marketing. I have a Distinction MA in Creative Writing and have been working as a freelancer for over 15 years. I have a versatile voice that can be friendly and enthusiastic, or informative, academic, or educational. In the nicest possible way, could I ask that you please observe my hourly rate before you send me an invite to your job? I charge by time, not by word - I don't do fixed-rate jobs unless they cover the time required to do the job. I run a small publishing company (WFTS Books) and can create interactive eBooks from given copy or create new copy to a stated research topic. I love researching and translating that research into accessible, digestible content for the web or for print. I have 15 years experience as a teacher (PGCE), so have loads of experience of creating educational resources and interactive web-based content. As a (very rough) guide a 500-word blog piece takes around an hour, but it depends on the research required. Please don't suggest a negotiation unless it matches my hourly rate. And remember, I charge for my time, not per word. Thank you!!

    You've got something to say. My goal is to help you to say it. In the world of publishing, this means a solid design. Clean text. Words presented in the best way to get your message across. But this also means being organized. And not getting bogged down with the simple tasks that are easy to delegate. Your project is important to me. From start to finish, whatever is needed, I'm that old-fashioned Girl Friday with a technical capability that will help you to get your message across. Whether it's designing a business card or brochure, or helping you to create that entire book from start to finish, I've got your back. Design. Edits. Layout. Writing. I've been on Upwork for more than three years, and I'm no stranger to Hard Work. I've worked professionally in the publishing industry for more than a dozen years. I've done editing for various publishing companies, been the virtual assistant to one of the top literary agents in the country, and have done graphic design for dozens of books and magazines. I've been published in magazines as diverse as "Country" to "Women's World."

    I am a published author of children's books based in the United Kingdom. I'm keen to keep creating wonderful stories for children around the world. Writing a children's book can be hard work, there is so much to take into consideration: simple but beautiful language, a captivating plot, a relatable character, a good message and so on. Let me help you with all of that! I am familiar with the process that goes behind the creation of children's books and I would be delighted to help in making your project a success! About me: My journey as a children’s writer began with a book I desperately needed but didn’t exist – so I wrote it myself. The book was published by a lovely publisher and was soon followed by other exciting stories. Since then, I’ve been involved in a wide range of projects, both as an author and as freelance writer. I was recently selected for the Curtis Brown Creative ‘Writing YA & Children Fiction’ course as well as the 12-month industry-led ‘Writing for Children and Young Adult’ course at the Golden Egg Academy. Each course has taught me so much, both in terms of skills as well as understanding of this fast-changing industry and I’d be thrilled to share what I’ve learned with you.

My name is Chella, and I'm a seasoned Freelance writer from the Philippines. With my vast experience in this field, I learned to aim at one thing for every project I take: "To maximize and sustain the ROI of my clients." I'm a flexible writer and can write almost anything, but my most comfortable niches are blogs, product reviews, website content, ebooks, and social media posts. Apart from being a writer, I am also a SEO specialist, a Social Media Admin, and do a little bit of Web Design and Development. All of these are products of my constant aim to upgrade my skills. Complacency is a mortal sin for me. I also believe in the power of research, and this is my fuel as I write. Just a caveat: If you're looking for cheap or average work, I'm sorry, I cannot help you. Because whether simple or complex projects, I mean business and value the money you will invest in me. I want to work with clients who respect Time, clients who give detailed instructions, and clients who have high regard for Professionalism. So if you agree with me, send me an invite with a note about you, what you do, and details of your project. If it seems like a good fit, I'll respond right away so we can schedule a discussion.

How to Hire Top Book Writers

How to hire book writers

Got a brilliant idea for a novel but lack the writing skills or time to write it yourself? A professional book writer can wordsmith your ideas into eBooks, cookbooks, memoirs, and other literary works.

So how do you hire book writers? What follows are some tips for finding top book writers on Upwork.

How to shortlist book writing professionals

As you’re browsing available book writing consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the freelancers you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Book genre. You want a book writer who understands what you’re trying to create, whether it’s a romance novel or a business eBook on lead generation.
  • Communication. You want a book writer who asks questions and can communicate with you regularly to ensure that the finished project matches your vision.
  • Feedback Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular book writer.

How to write an effective book writing job post

With a clear picture of your ideal book writer in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

An effective book writing job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From educational eBooks to personal memoirs, list all the deliverables you’ll need.
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain collaborative tools, genres, or writing styles, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

BOOK WRITERS FAQ

What is a book writer?

A book writer is someone who ghostwrites books: your ideas, their writing, your name on the book.

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in book writing professionals:

  • Ghostwriting
  • Editing and proofreading
  • Creative writing (fiction and/or nonfiction)
  • Relevant writing expertise (e.g., self-help eBooks)

Why hire book writers?

The trick to finding top book writers is to identify your needs. Is your goal a free eBook that will slide right into your marketing sales funnel as a lead magnet? Or are you commissioning a science fiction novel that will require heavy background research? The cost of your project will depend largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life.

How much does it cost to hire a book writer?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced book writer may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their book writing services more competitively.

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project.
