**If this post is still up, we're still hiring** Also looking to hire more than one person. We are looking for writers who have a passion for writing romance. Thank you for your interest in my job post. I represent a small, but growing Publishing Company. At the present time we have a few spots open on our military romance (M/F) writing team. We are looking to hire authors that are interested in an ongoing relationship, creating 100% original content for us. Most of our projects are 30,000-60,000+ words. When working with new writers we start off with smaller projects. The project length you are applying is a short military romance, length approx. 10,000+ words. The book also needs an approx. 300+ word summary/sales copy that entices/teases the reader to want to read the book without giving away too much of the plot. We are looking for open minded & creative individuals. Total word length of this project is 10,300 & the budget is $103.00.
It can be based on the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or special forces like the Seals.
Ideally - we are looking for someone who has military experience (our readers are often in the military & will pick apart stories with details that aren't accurate - such as procedures, rank structure, etc). If you have military experience, please let us know. If you don't have military experience, perhaps you know someone who does that can read your book while in draft to help you make sure the military aspects are correct.
We are looking for experienced romance fiction writers, you should be familiar with character & story arcs for example. There will be plenty of creative freedom with this project. Aside from being hot, the romance story is very important.
Candidate MUST be a Native English Speaker/Writer with excellent spelling, grammar, and proofreading skills. Poor grammar and badly worded sentences will not be accepted. If you don't have a good grasp on western English sentence structure, please do not apply for our ghostwriter position. We're happy to hire non-native speakers for other tasks, but our writers absolutely MUST be native English speaking. No exceptions.
No plagiarism! All books are run through multiple plagiarism checkers (plagscan, copyscape, etc). Yes, we do check & will report plagiarized work to Upwork. We have zero tolerance for plagiarism. Content must be 100% original & never published elsewhere before (your own site, fanfic sites, etc) - you are being hired to write a new 100% original story.

For the right writers, who are reliable & produce quality books, this is an ongoing position. Our top writers have as much work as they can handle or want.

Writing teams or anyone who outsources their writing, please do no apply. We are looking to work with individuals. The writing MUST be done by YOU.
