Hi everyone the book will be an e-book. I am searching for someone who can help me come up with a book title and subtitle, help me brain storm to write a short yet deep meaningful inspirational story about a young cancer patient who fought till his very last breath, was strong and always had faith during his cancer journey. The young cancer patient lived an inspiring life and inspired many who knew him. He passed away at 25 years old and it is a real life encounter, I want this short story to touch and reach out to millions to look at life at a different perspective, to live a positive life regardless of your circumstances. I was this young patients primary carer and partner so I have all the memories to start off with :) I look forward in working with you

Hi! I am looking for a high quality, 15,000 word Romantic Fantasy Fiction story with a compelling 200-300 word description/synopsis. This is a self-governing project where the writer is free to develop a working plot with depth and character development. I will provide a little plot direction but I am looking for a writer with a strong creative flair who enjoy creating! This is a book with fantasy elements in a modern-day setting involving a fallen angel whose lusty thoughts got her booted from her heavenly abode. Think "City of Angels" on steroids. Or maybe ecstasy. Either way, she retains many of her unique "angelic abilities" but is considerably "human". In her attempt to understand her predicament and the reasons she was cast down, she will find love, action, adventure and of course, passion. She will explore sensuality, compassion and her own mortality. She appears as a pretty (if somewhat "gothy") young woman to humans but her wings and other details can become visible to some, at will and during times of high stress or distraction. (Thus, shifter). Writer must be comfortable writing realistic and compelling story of sensual love and desire. I'm looking for a story powerful enough to really engage and create a vested reader. If the story progresses well, there are outlines for sequels in the making. I am only interested in writers from the US and Canada (native English speakers) with romance/fiction writing experience. I will own all rights to this book. Content must be entirely original and will be sent to Copyscape to ensure originality. I am looking for a long term relationship. I would prefer to find a writer who work well with me and create value for the both of us. I produce ebooks frequently and believe in tipping for exceptional work. I am willing to pay 10 USD per 1000 words of the book content and synopsis combined for this project. If you offer high quality, original writing that is error free and on-time, we may explore a continuing contract. Originality, concept and character development are key! Requirements for the book: Realistic. It is a modern day setting so any "real" terms, places etc. should be researched. Create one main character and focus on her relentlessly. Give characters definite goals/objectives. In late & out early. Don't start before the action hits and when the main objectives are reached, end it. Keep the book moving. Include at least three good action/conflict scenes. End the book happily and without a cliffhanger unless we decide to tie-in to a sequel. I ask for very good and ongoing communication. A simple message daily or every-few-days will suffice, just to reassure the both of us that we're open to communication.

Article Writer and Editor Needed I need you to be a Native English Speaker, meaning English is your first language. You will be creating and editing entertainment articles in wordpress. I want to start out the job at around minimum wage but as time goes on and you learn new skills to take over new responsibilities I can raise it over time. Initially I will have a lot of catching up to do on editing, you will be making small edits on articles that were done by people with not the best english in the world. They generally make sense the grammar is just a bit off here and there. Once you catch up on these I will start having you make your own articles. Any examples you may have of previous work will be much appreciated. Thank you!
