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. Ideally, we would like to receive the first completed book within three weeks, sooner if you are able. Examples of cozy mystery book authors are: Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. 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.

All that's required is a great idea which you think you can develop. If this sounds like it could be of interest then please do get in touch with the following: 1. a logline or short pitch; 2. a short description of each character; and 3. a quotation per episode (please ignore the budget mentioned above).

A fun project: I'm looking for 30+ 150 -250 word short stories about restaurant meals or other snack products. I need creative people with a real passion for food! The short blog stories are to be exaggerated accounts of how you (the writer) experienced and connected with the food. It’s a bit like a very positive review of a product with a twist. These "love stories” are meant to be humorous, engaging, and go into much detail about how great the food was. They should communicate emotion and passion like any short love story would. A good rule of thumb is to focus on the senses: allude to how the food smelled, looked, felt, and of course tasted! Be super creative. Make use of metaphors and similes. Every post should have a clever title as well. I will send you the products and/or meals I need you write about. Although these are passionate love stories, there should be no content that is sexually suggestive or explicit. The writers with strong submissions will definitely get future work. Read this rough draft example, although I expect something of much higher quality: My Secret Love Affair with the Cheesecake Factory's Chicken Piccata When the waiter said it would be just a bit longer, I began to salivate. The Cheesecake Factory Chicken Piccata would soon make its new home within my passionately yearning stomach. My girlfriend and I sat there quietly as I breathed heavily in anticipation. A few minutes later and there it was: glistening beautifully in front of my eyes. It was stunning the way the capers and mushrooms perfectly sat atop the chicken breasts. And the noodles…how playful the noodles were as they made their way in and out of the buttery sauce. I softly whispered to the plate, “My love, come hither..” My girlfriend looked up from her penne pasta confusingly at me. I told her it was nothing. “We almost got caught…” I thought looking down at my gorgeous Chicken Piccata. It was time for the first bite. I slid my knife into the tender chicken and gathered some noodles and mushrooms with my fork. Mouth watering, I paused to enjoy the lemon smell that filled the air below my nose. Lifting the fork up slowly into my mouth, I felt the warm oily lemon sauce spread gently over my tongue. As I bit into the soft piece of chicken, it erupted with even more flavor. The mushrooms, capers, and noodles eventually combined to create the perfect texture and taste. My tongue moved around, savoring every bit. I finally swallowed the bite, in absolute ecstasy and eagerness for another.
