Write an eBook about Holistic Healing / Ayurveda We would like to have an (approximately) 20 page (single spaced) word ebook about holistic healing written. The general idea of the eBook is revolving around the topic of holistic healing that considers the whole person - body, mind, spirit, and emotions - in the quest for optimal health and wellness. The eBook will essentially help people improve their imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, to positively impact their overall health. The intention is that this ebook will serve as the foundation for many (smaller) ebooks/articles/blogs for our site. All research must be done by the writer, and it goes without saying the content MUST be original (we have a plagiarism software). We would prefer if the writer has experience in writing holistic/ayurvedic/well-being/meditational areas. We would prefer someone with a creative writing background - the ebook has to be 'easy reading' with a nice, creative flair that will draw the reader in and entice them to read more of our books. 54 Research, Ghostwriting, eBooks, Book Writing May 26, 2017 May 26, 20175d 22h $309
