Overview: I am seeking native English speakers/writers to write ebooks that will be between 5,000 and 10,000 words each. I need interested parties to have impeccable grammar, be able to pay close attention to detail, and also be excellent communicators. I will provide a detailed outline of exactly how the books should be laid out, complete with chapter headings and information that I want to go under each heading, and links to online sources of the content. Very minimal actual research will need to be performed by the writer, if any. The goal is to go paragraph by paragraph and put the information in each chapter into unique words that sound like they have a "voice". Plagiarism is a no-no and will be reported to Upwork, no questions asked. The right freelancer has an incredibly strong command of the English language and should have the ability to read short paragraphs, comprehend them, and immediately write the general concept behind those paragraphs into their own words. The right freelancer should be able to type at a decent speed, as this job should not take very long since all of the required information will be laid out for them. The right freelancer will also respond to this posting with "Golden Ticket" in the subject line of their message. The right freelancer is responsive to inquiry, and has no problem sending me the first chapter for approval once complete, before proceeding, in order to ensure that no time is being wasted. The right freelancer will submit their product with no grammatical or spelling errors, or be willing to complete unlimited revisions in order to provide a good product. Please note this is a fixed payment per job position, with milestone payments. For the first project the rate will be lower than future projects as I would like to ensure an excellent project. Starting price is $1.10 per 100 words. If the first project is successful and we would like to move forward with a long-term relationship, rate will be increased proportionate to the quality of your work.
