Hi there. I'm looking for a few beta readers for my non-fiction/self-help book. I already had it proofed and edited and now I'm looking for a few others to provide the following: 1) choice of book title (I have several in the running) after you read through the content. The last reader started off with one title and then changed her mind by the end. I did the same. 2) if you think the chapters are ordered so that the reader stays engaged and it all seems logical. 3) if you think there is enough of the male/female point of view comments 4) if you can see anything missing or that doesn't seem to belong 5) I want to be sure to give them lots of good content but also balance the fact that the book is really just a lead generation for my blog and the products/services I promote. I want to make sure this seems ok to the reader. (Considering the book will be under $4-5.) 6) then any other comment that comes to mind as you review it. The book is about 46K length, however some of that...

I need very good writers to write short ebooks for me. I will give the topic categories (which are listed below). Every book should not be less than 10,000 words. NOTE: You must be a professional writer, able to do research and write in good and clear English. I do not have the time to proof read so your presentation must be clear, attention grabbing and with impeccable English. I will NOT tolerate plagiarism. So, if you are think of doing copy & paste, i will notice it and you will not be paid. This is a long term project and if you perform excellently, your services will be retained. I need somebody that can write in proper English, with no grammar errors and enticing information to keep the readers attention. You will be acting as a ghost writer and I will be publishing the books under my pen names, so all rights to the content you provide must be solely mine after payment is sent to you and it must not be used for anything else or re-sold. I am willing to pay $100 per...

Hello! I am looking for someone who can skim/scan (or read fully) business books and put the key points into actionable steps for business owners. I have put an example below from another summary I found, but I want it to be even shorter and more to the point. Take principles from the books and turn them into action items for leaders in a simple one-pager. I will accept multiple submissions this time to find the right freelancer or two to have lots of recurring work. The title I want you to start with is Start with Why by Simon Sinek. In your cover letter, please tell me your favorite color so I know you read fully the directions. Example: Good To Great- Jim Collins Collins examines a broad spectrum of companies that have positioned themselves for success. He starts to dissect common patterns and formulas for making the leap from good to great. What ingredients go into that special sauce of greatness? How exactly does that happen? It’s not just one smart business...
