I would like to hire a Book Writer I would love to have a personalised story for my niece. Ideally would love a short rhyming story approximately 500 words long (Rhyming format: A, B, C, B) that is lighthearted with Lucy as the lead character. She is two years old and an absolute chatterbox, so if that can become part of the story that would be fantastic. Other than that, she loves to be the centre of attention, and is often stealing the limelight from her brother Sam. The book can be aimed at early readers ('Dr Zeuss' level), so there is some freedom to adjust the story as you need (rather than aim it at complete beginner readers). Ideally, it'll be a book that we gift her early in life and as she grows old enough to read it can begin to appreciate how special it is! Rhyming is preferred but not an absolute requirement so I am open to any ideas that you might have. 36 Book Writing, Content Writing Jul 23, 2017 Today6d 20h $101
