Multi-Time Bestselling Publisher looking for an EXPERIENCED COZY MYSTERY WRITER to start new series of 3-5 full-length novels within the culinary, crafts or animals subgeneras. Writer should understand what readers of such books on Amazon want and be able to give it to them. I am looking for rich characters that the readers will want to read more about in future books, a compelling plot and an interesting mystery with a twist that keeps the reader guessing until the end.
The first book would be a paid test and, if successful, I would like to immediately proceed into the next books in the series, producing at least one every 4 weeks, indefinitely.
Writer should be able to come up with their own plots, which must be laid out and agreed upon prior to writing. Weekly milestones of 10k words each will be set up and paid for as we proceed, so I can review the work AND you can get paid while the story is being written.
This is for a ghostwriting gig. I would own all rights to the story and characters when complete, whether or not we decide to work together again. The work should be delivered in complete, edited form, free of all errors (ie. ready for print). If you typically require an editor, it would be your responsibility to handle this BEFORE handing the work in.
I also request a 2-4 paragraph description for Amazon's sales page as well as suggestions for the series & title names.
Please respond to this post with your experience/history, your price to write (per word or per 35,000-50,000 word book - note that the price given below is only a placeholder), your timeline for completion and a sample of your work (preferably published work) within this genre.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!
NOTE: If you are applying for this job as an agent for another writer(s), please state this in your cover letter.
