If you can also do occasional proofreading or editing, that would also be a bonus (but not essential right now).

Completely read through the 9,000 word ebook that I will provide to you and perform any editing that is needed 2. The website link of the Kindle book will be provided for you to study. I need actionable feedback from you about whether or not the title of the book and the book cover as well as the sales copy is any good. Maybe the title stinks and you will be able to come up with a better one that is more catchy or makes more sense after you have read the book in full? Maybe you will take one look at the cover and think it is horrible or doesn't make sense? If so, what type of color concept would you recommend instead? I will need some very detailed feedback and creative ideas so that I can give them to my cover designer. 3....

I have 1 free ebook promo coming up and I'm starting to look for VAs to help me secure book reviews. I'm looking for 50 five-star positive book reviews for the book to increase the BSR of my book. Some points to note about each of the review you post for those whom you exchange books with: - Each review should be at least 3-4 lines long at the very minimal. - Review should have proper, appropriate content and is written coherently. - Review should have the main keyword at least twice. - Information in the review must relate to the book. A total of 50 reviews are required for this job. This is an ad-hoc job which allows me to gauge who I can work with on a long term basis doing kindle publishing work. Let me know if you're interested. Take note that the price is a lump sum payment for 50 reviews. Price is negotiable.
