I am a looking for a creative writer who has the natural ability to tell great stories and make the words come alive. I need someone who has previous writing experience in the Paranormal Romance/Mystery genre. I recently published book 1 of a series on Amazon, and it is already selling like hot cakes! Unfortunately the original writer is no longer available, so I am needing someone to come in and pick right up where book 1 left off. As part of the application process, you will be given a copy of book 1 to read. Then you will be required to give me your feedback and creative story ideas of how you think book 2 should play out. I am leaving a lot of flexibility for you to be creative with this project. I just need someone who can add more depth and feeling to the rest of the series, as long as it makes sense and flows smoothly with book 1. The story will need to be 18,000 - 20,000 words minimum.

Looking for someone to copyedit and proofread my 72K romantic suspense novel, Need You Now. This work was my thesis and had been through a round of edits with my mentors and critique partners, but I'd like a thorough fresh edit before I proceed with self-publishing the manuscript through Kindle. In addition to editing, I'm looking for someone edit on style and recommendations on where and how to tighten up the novel. I'd like the freelancer to include experience and any references to the type of work that they provide. I don't plan on this novel being my one and only. I have several other works in progress and would like to build a rapport with a talented editor who could also copyedit future projects as well.

Hi dear writer, I need a short wilderness survival guide on foraging herbs and plants. You will be informed of the title for this project once you apply for the job. You must have a very good command of grammar and spellings. I have zero tolerance for bad grammar due to past experiences, so if you think you won't be able to deliver grammatically correct eBook, please DO NOT apply. The book must be high quality and 100% originally created material (NO plagiarism). Length of the book will be 3500 words. IN ADDITION to the eBook, you would also have to write 200 word powerful description/sales pitch for the book. That would point out why this book is good and would really help and sell it. You are required to be able to complete the project within 5-7 days. If you're hired for this position and the work is of excellent quality then we can discuss a long term relationship in which you would join my team of writers. This means that you would have a steady stream of projects to work...
