Hello Amazing Sci-Fi/Mystery Writer: I'm looking for a writer who is experienced in writing Sci-Fi and Mystery stories. I will be looking for 3 stories to be written as Culinary Mystery. I would like if they could be written as a stand alone stories, but similar enough so that I can bundle them (please ask if you don't understand what I mean). Each story should be 10,000 words in length. I have had work turned into me that is copied and I have zero tolerance or patience any more for that. I personally read each story that is given to me; I do not just send to an editor. I also run stories through copyscape. You will find I am pretty laid back and easy to work with. I am flexible on deadlines of you need an extra day. I just ask that you please stay in contact and communicate with me. I do ask to see the first couple chapters of the book and will provide feedback. I ask that you use your own creativity for the plot of the story. Please reply with examples of work previously completed. Thank you, Derek
