A couple of established romance pens are looking for a few new freelance ghostwriters to join our team. We're willing to negotiate a per word rate between .01/word to .015/word TO START, based on your experience, and there's room for future advancement if things go well. The current books we're looking for are 25-30K words in length. Some will be first person, some will be third person.
Are you a native English speaker? An experienced romance writer with several published or ghostwritten titles under your belt? Do you love writing romance in the steamier romance categories? Do you love wringing every bit of emotion out of your characters before finally giving them their HEA? Can you write witty dialogue and humorous situations, as well as believable conflict and super-steamy love scenes?
If so, we want you to write for us. We're looking for writers for contemporary MMF Menage with lots of great sex scenes and a great story that holds it all together. We do both light, humorous billionaire heroes as well as darker, grittier bad-boy heroes. We're NOT looking for guy porn. This is delicious, exciting romance, with well-developed characterization and story, written for women who love men who can love them back.
What we provide:
* An outline with all the significant details. All you need to do is work your writer magic and bring it to life.
* Or, if you prefer, you can create your own outline, which we'll pay for separately and let you go your own way.
* An editor who will work with you on the project to give you any help you may need as you go along
* The opportunity to stay as busy as you want. As long as we like your work (and the readers like it!) we'll be happy to keep you busy!
* Raises and bonuses, based on your skills, how well you make deadlines, book sales, reviews, etc.
Before you apply, you must understand that this is work for hire. We pay you a flat fee and there are no royalties going forward. You understand that you will hold no rights to the story whatsoever after we purchase it from you, and you will not be able to publicly take any credit for the work in any way.
If you plan on selling us plagiarized work, be forewarned. We check for plagiarism with several tools and will not only not pay you, but will report you to Upwork. In addition, you will have to sign an agreement stating that the work is your original work and that you will be responsible for any claims of copyright infringement that may arise in regard to your work.
If you're NOT a plagiarist and would like to write wonderful, sexy romance for us, with the potential for long-term work and raises along the way, please apply! We're looking for long-term relationships here, with professional and creative HEA's for everyone!
A final note: In addition to knowing romance, you must have a well-developed, professional voice. This is not an entry level position. We're advertising for INTERMEDIATE skills, and if we can find EXPERT skills at a reasonable rate, even better. We do provide editing, but we don't want to have to pay another ghostwriter to to revise your work to make it publishable. In addition, you MUST be able to make deadlines. We know you're juggling clients and trying to stay busy, but you MUST not over-promise. We expect a two-week turn around on a 25-30 K story, and we'll pay a $50 bonus if it comes in at least a day early. Within that two weeks, you'll be expected to re-read and revise your work so that it's as close to perfect as you can make it. You'll work with an editor who will review the work and suggest any revisions that might be needed. Until we get to know you and your work, we'll separate the work into progress milestones, which we'll pay as we go. If you make all the deadlines, and the editor gives you a gold star, we'll be happy to hire you for additional projects at a higher rate of pay.
We'll start by sending you the first 5000 words to write. If you have a great voice and can write an engaging opening from the outline we send (and turn it in on time), we'll continue the project from there.
Please attach a sample so we can see your work. And thanks for reading all the way to the end. We look forward to reading your samples!
