Looking for someone to write a series of short stories in the Amish Christian Inspirational romance genre.
*** Candidates MUST have experience in writing in this genre***
These stories will have a word count of approximately 15,000 words each.
This will be ongoing work for the right applicant.
I will pay $180 per 15,000-word book and it should be noted that I treat my freelance writers very well providing they treat me in the same way :) (all good stories completed in a timely manner).
If you are chosen to write these books I would ask that you first provide a 1500 word sample of the beginning of the first book (I will let you know the genre and provide supporting info) for which I will pay you $20.
If the sample looks satisfactory then I will ask you to carry on and complete the book and the remaining $160 for that book will be paid. I ask that you do this as anyone can provide a sample of their past work (which you will need to provide with your application) but I will not know if it is yours or indeed if you are able to write in this genre until I see what you can offer.
Whatever happens, you will get an insight into another genre and make $20 as a minimum in doing so.
So, basically what I am offering is;
1500 word initially for $20
Further 13,500 words for $160
Further books of 15,000 words or so at $180 total each.
A reader should be able to be read these as stand-alone books by themselves such that someone casually picking up a book from the middle or end of the series can read another in the same series without necessarily needing to understand what happened before.
Now, please take note that I need someone who can write a story that will enthrall the reader and have a defined beginning, middle, end structure / story arc. I also need someone who understands romance and can craft a story that grabs the reader from the first few paragraphs.
Editing for spelling and basic grammar errors isn't that difficult, I can work with that, but I cannot work with someone who thinks they are a writer but isn't.
If you understand story…
If you understand how to write so your characters are developed more through action, speech and less through inward thoughts…
If you understand romance…
If you understand christian inspirational romance…***specifically Amish romance***
Please understand before applying that you must be able to hold the reader's attention and draw them in such that when they preview the book using say the Amazon 'Look Inside' previewer they are captivated enough to want to purchase the book to find out what happens next and you must be able to provide entertainment throughout the book so that they are likely to want to purchase the next book in the series.
Perhaps a tall order? If so please do not apply but if this appeals to you and you do a good job then I will undoubtedly be using you again on a very regular basis.
I hope this opportunity is of interest and I look forward to hearing from you.
Please provide two samples of your work in ***Amish romance***
Please also tell me why you think you are the right candidate for this particular job?
