1-2 writers wanted for creative ghostwriting projects. You’ll be taking story-lines written out and fleshing them out into a full novella or short story. Long term work is a must. Most writing will be based on a series. Native English speakers only please. These books are NOT erotica, but they will have steamy scenes between married couples in the stories. No profane words allowed either. Later on we may rewrite stories to be more for a clean storyline. (Hence the long term commitment preferred.) Each book is 10,000-15,000 words aprx. Longer books with higher pay may be negotiated after a few months of working with us. Work will be checked for plagiarism and copying, if found, you will not be paid, period. Quality work will get you bonuses after the book has been on sale for one month (and sometimes months later!) ALL book and storyline writes belong to our company, no exceptions. Although writers can receive marketing support through our company for their own...
