I need people to help me create recipe books, using GOOGLE DOCS only. I can only pay $5 or less per book, so do not bid higher. You will not be writing the recipes yourself. You will be copying them from google. However, you will still need to change the titles of the recipes and summarize the instructions of the recipe into your own words as much as possible. Do not copy the recipes exactly, otherwise I cannot use the book. I have about 1000+ recipe books that I need to make. If you do a good job on the book you make, then I will hire you again to make more. I have attached an example of a cookbook that I have thrown together for “pork chop recipes“ IT IS REQUIRED, THAT YOU MAKE YOUR BOOK IN GOOGLE DOCS JUS LIKE I HAVE. ALSO YOU MUST MAKE YOUR BOOK IN ALL THE SAME FONTS AND STYLING THAT THE EXAMPLE IS MADE IN. PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW TO LEARN HOW TO FORMAT YOUR RECIPE BOOK PROPERLY. IF YOUR RECIPE BOOKS IS NOT FORMATTED PROPERLY, IT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Create recipe books using GOOGLE DOCS ONLY. 30 recipes each book. I can only pay $5 per book. You will be copying the recipes from google. But U still need to change the titles of the recipes and summarize the directions a bit. Watch video for formatting tips. https://youtu.be/U39OBYOou4g The recipe book only needs to have 30 or more recipes. As soon as you are hired I will tell you what kind of recipe book you will be making. But for example, let’s imagine that you are making a “guacamole recipe” book. Again you will simply have to search in google for "guacamole recipes" and then copy the recipes from different websites. You "MUST NOT" copy all of the recipes from one website though. The recipes should be copied from atleast 5-10 different websites. Once again you will have to remake the titles. Like if the recipe is called. "Pineapple and Mango Guacamole" rename it yourself like: "Guacamole with Mango bits and pineapple chunks" It is okay if you directly copy the ingredients. Like it may say. Ingredients: 1 avocado 1 onion 1 piece of cilantro 1/2 lemon However, you need to change the instructions or directions for the ingredients into your own words. For instance, below is an example of some instructions for guacamole and below that I have put them into my own words. Original Instructions: Mash the avocado, and grind into bowl. Then add salt and pepper and half of a lemon and cut of cilantro. Mash together and serve. -Please do not directly copy the instructions or directions, you will need to rewrite them into your own words like I have done below. Rewritten Instructions: Take the avocado and smash it in a bowl into a paste. Next, please add some salt and a dash of pepper. Squeeze half a lemon and dice up your cilantro and throw in bowl as well. Mix all the ingredients together and then server. -See how I just summarized the first set of instructions and made my own version? That is what I need you to do, because we do not want to just directly plagiarize recipes. Again I am looking for people to bid $5 or less for this job per recipe book. I need the cookbooks to be created in google docs and in the same format as the recipe book that I have attached. PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW TO LEARN HOW TO FORMAT YOUR RECIPE BOOK PROPERLY. IF YOUR RECIPE BOOKS IS NOT FORMATTED PROPERLY, IT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Create recipe books using GOOGLE DOCS ONLY. 30 recipes each book. I can only pay $5 per book. You will be copying the recipes from google. But U still need to change the titles of the recipes and summarize the directions a bit. Watch video for formatting tips. https://youtu.be/U39OBYOou4g If you do a good job on your recipe book I will have tons more books for you to do. Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions. Plus I will be hiring a near unlimited amount of people so please bid.

Hi! I'm looking for a rockstar writer who can deliver top notch error free ebooks in the Cozy Murder Mystery Niche to join my team. The job would require you to produce well researched, excellently written books for the genre's mentioned above. Moreover we're REALLY looking for someone who can take on the voice of this genre's and deliver highly engaging stories for our readers. I've provided links to 2 examples of Cozy Murder Mystery books that are popular on Amazon and who will basically be our competition. If the first job is completed successfully and to a high level of quality, we can discuss long term work. Every book we release we aim to make a bestseller, so you may turn out to be Kindle-Famous after this. If you're hired for this position and the work is of excellent quality then we can discuss a long-term relationship in which you would join my team of writers. This means that you would have a steady stream of projects to work on as we are continually publishing books, the only limit would be the time you have available. We look to put out a minimum of 2 books per month to be exact. I will pay anywhere from $200 - $300 per book (we will decide on a $ per 100 word rate). Each book is around 15,000 to 20,000 words. I am looking for someone who enjoys writing and learning. You must have an excellent grasp of the English language and write well in everyday English – ideally English should be your first language. You should also be aware that you will be required to sign a quick non-disclosure agreement before the work begins. Additionally all work will be subjected to a plagiarism check via a service such as CopyScape, I know this isn't going to be necessary but it is required to protect the company. You're writing should be relatively error free with perfect grammar, spelling and require little to no copy editing for continuity, as is the mark of an excellent writer. I'll also ask that you submit a short "test" job of around 300-500 words in length on the topic of my choice once you've been short listed. You'll be paid for this sample.
