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. If you want to be considered for this job then reply and use the word PURPLE as the FIRST word in your application. Here are the links, please check them out before replying. I expect your writing to be of this caliber or better! http://www.amazon.com/Murder-Moist-Foul-Mystery--Mysteries-ebook/dp/B00T8QISU6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1455407491&sr=8-1&keywords=a+murder+moist+foul http://www.amazon.com/Cream-Puff-Murder-Hannah-Swensen-ebook/dp/B0031W1EK4/ref=zg_bs_7130631011_3 I look forward to working with you!

I am looking to hire someone long term to write short, approx 5k word, stories in a certain niche. I'm looking for a story every one to two weeks. Take a look at the Marketplace series by Laura Antoniou or Exit to Eden by Anne Rice/Anne Rampling to get an idea of what I am looking for. Those are novels and I am looking for short stories but that is the theme I am going for. I will need gay and straight stories. I am open to hiring 2 writers if I can't find someone willing to do both. I prefer people in the US but I have had writers from other countries that had a good grasp of American English so I am willing to consider other locations.
