We are looking for a couple of creative writers to ghostwrite a series of beautiful romance stories. (By "beautiful", we mean clean romance stories that contain no violence, profanity or sex.) Each story will be approximately 15,000 words, and we will supply a plot description, links to resource materials, ongoing guidance and constructive criticism. Although we can provide a writer with a plot, we need someone - maybe you! - with the ability to make the characters come alive, to tell their story and to involve the reader at a high level. If you're one of "our people", you must be a native English speaker and writer, able to write with perfect English grammar and spelling. You must be willing to accept direction and constructive criticism. You must be willing to research the romantic sub-genre we assign to you, to accurately present the culture you'll be writing about. You'll need to supply us with at least 2 examples of your work, preferably romantic fiction. You'll need to produce quickly (which means you will also get paid quickly :) ) And, of course, all your work must be 100% original, which we will verify. Again, this work is part of an ongoing series, so we're looking for people we can establish a good working relationship with - a relationship that hopefully will last for a long time. We hope that would be your desire as well. If all this sounds like you, then please get back to us. We're eager to get started. How about you?

I am looking for top quality, experienced ghost writers for a long term relationship in writing in the romance (particularly "adult") genre. For Amazon Kindle. Typically, the short books will be between 7k-10k words, and I am willing to pay $100 usd for up to 10k words. If the writing is exciting and convincing, then longer versions will come into play. This will be an ongoing relationship. I am fun to work with - relaxed, understanding and happy to have a two way communication regarding ideas. Writing should be original, enthusiastic and you should be well versed (or at least have stunning potential) in the above genre. More details to follow, as we move through the process.
