Dear Freelancer,

My name is Alexis, and I'm a published author. I publish books on a consistent basis, either written by me, or by my team of ghostwriters. All my books are written in English, in the Non-Fiction area.

On this particular occasion, I'd like to create a book about language. More precisely, a book on learning Portuguese. A "Crash Course" on Portuguese. The key idea here is that any person who reads this book will obtain a clear grasp of the BASICS of the Portuguese language, verb tenses, proper use of nouns, sentence structure, common phrases, and so forth, in a relatively short amount of time.

Remember: this is a CRASH COURSE, not an boring encyclopedia. People who decide to read this book have to find it light and fun, and above all they have to LEARN a lot while reading it. Before opening it, people will be already aware that it's a crash course, so don't worry about covering each and every single aspect of the Portuguese language! The idea is to cover the basics. The essentials. The things one just cannot miss. The things that will make you relatively fluent and prepared. AND you have to make as fun as you can, because people will otherwise stop caring.

The book is aimed to be short. I'm thinking around 10k and 15k words, depending on how things develop once you're writing it. I'm fully open to push the word count if it's necessary, making adjustments to the final payment, of course.

Native Russian speakers with detailed knowledge of English will revise this book to assess its quality after it's finished. QUALITY IS KEY here guys. I intend to provide VALUE above all, so both the content and the structure (that's why both perfect English and Portuguese skills are required) have to be smooth and solid.

I will ask you to attach a sample of a short text written by you before we start. You can attach it with your application right away to speed things up!

So here is the summary of this job offering:

Book Subject: Crash Course On Learning Portuguese
Word Count: 10-15k
Budget: $200/$300 (***$200 per 10k, $300 per 15k***)
Deadline: 7-10 days. We can talk it over anyway.

If you have any doubts, please ask me and I'll answer them right away!

Keep in touch,
