1 month ago

Needs to hire 3 Freelancers
We are a passionate publishing house run by an experienced team looking for professional ghostwriters to work with us on a long term. We have consistent work for our ghostwriters in our serious business of producing e-books across a variety of genres.

At the moment, we are looking for experienced ghostwriters to work on our classic western shoot 'em up! project. We require ghostwriters to be able to write full length novel of 60k to 80k, and to commit to writing several books.

Details on the structure of such books will be shared with the shortlisted applicants.

Our offer:
1) Regular work
2) Prompt payment
3) Fair rates increment
4) Clear and swift communication

In exchange, what we seek on your part is:
1) Professional attitude
2) Clear and swift communication
3) Openness to feedback and doing changes

Project budget:
The rate of $900 listed here is based on 60k words and just a guideline. We are open to negotiation based on your experience. For highly experienced and expert ghostwriters, we are more than willing to raise our budget.

Below, we have listed some key requirements needed for this role:
1) Fast and strong writer who can produce 60,000 words in 4 weeks
2) Willing to research on the genre to ensure factual accuracy
3) Willing to extend 200-word blurb as part of the project
4) Honest in your strengths and weaknesses so we can assign the best projects to you
5) Willing to do at least one round of edits provided the volume of changes is reasonable - if you are a strong writer, such edits would be minimal

***Plagiarism: We take a serious view of plagiarism have zero tolerance on writers that copy the work of others. All written copies received by us will go through a few plagiarism checkers. The writers will not be paid if the content is not original and the malpractice will be reported to Upwork immediately.

About us:
We have been in the e-book publishing business since 2015 and we came onto Upwork in 2017 in search of highly qualified ghostwriters. We have guided several ghostwriters and work with them closely to produce and publish several number one bestselling books in various romance genres. Our team is pleasant to work with as you can see from the feedback left on Upwork by our previous ghostwriters. We also have the expertise, resources and experience to ensure all our projects are professionally conducted such that there will be minimal hiccups along the way, and to ensure all our ghostwriters have consistent work and are remunerated fairly for their efforts.

But we have little tolerance for ghostwriters who repeatedly fail to meet deadlines or who would give multiple excuses to delay submission.

*Kindly read through this job post carefully as all points mentioned are important.
