I am willing to hire a writer who has experience writing short stories in the cozy mystery genre. The writer we hire for the first book in the series will hopefully write the next two books so the author's voice and presentation are consistent across all three books. Our fixed price for each 10,000-word book is $50 per book, for a total of $150.00. The plot outlines will be provided to you and they will contain a story summary, character descriptions, setting and chapter scene set-ups. All you have to do is build on the plot and make a complete story with mysterious twists and turns so the reader cannot easily figure out the villain. This assignment may turn into a long-term relationship. We are always searching for creative writers to add to our team. These are the skills required for this job: Fluent in English Can produce error-free work Good grammar and vocabulary Develop solid stories that are believable Delivers work tasks on time Familiarity with Cozy Mysteries Deliver document in .doc or .docx format Guidelines for what we're looking for are best described in this citation from Brian A. Klems at Writer's Digest: "The cozy mystery (sometimes simply called a cozy) is a subgenre of crime fiction that gives readers a chance to delight in vicariously solving a murder—without graphic violence or sex. Protagonists are typically amateur (and usually female) sleuths solving small-town crimes with old-fashioned detective work rather than forensics. These unlikely heroes are often small-business owners who find themselves drawn into detection by crimes impacting their work; sometimes their investigative efforts are aided by a significant other with police connections." The content you create must not be copied from the plot outline and used directly in the story. The words you write must be 100% original content, and we will not accept works of plagiarism. Your document will be run through CopyScape for proof of no plagiarism. If your submitted work is not original and does not pass CopySpace, the document will be returned without compensation and you will not be included in our search for writers for future projects. The Legal Stuff When you apply for this writing job, you are agreeing that this is a work-for-hire and ghostwriting position. After the work is accepted by us and you have been paid, all ownership rights are transferred to us. This includes the story's copyrights, and you will not retain any rights to the draft product, final product, or published product. We reserve the right to use this story and the plot in any form, whether print or electronic, and we will own all rights for publication, including but not limited to a byline, resale, copyrights, editing, revision, ownership, and distribution rights. You will have no rights to distribute, sell, re-sell, or republish the material in any form whatsoever. You may, however, use a sample paragraph for your portfolio, but you must not disclose anything further. Before payment is released, you are required to sign, date, scan, and email us a nondisclosure agreement that we will provide. How to get started with your proposal Please include a brief statement telling us why we should consider you for this position. Please send a sample of your work in the cozy mystery style of writing. At the end of your application, please use the words 'whodunit' so we know you've read the entire ad.

Sayers, Charlotte Armstrong, Mary Roberts, Charlotte MacLeod, and Jane Haddam. Example of a cozy mystery series on TV is: Murder She Wrote We welcome your proposals and we're ready to get started within this next week.
