I am new to Freelancer so still trying to find my way around and understand how it all works so please bear with me.
I am a screenwriter from Australia and have completed a 90 page feature and was wanting to get the story converted into a novel of around 80,000 plus words. The story is very dark and the theme is to the tune of "Silence of the Lambs" though very different in the methods and storyline.
I would like to employ a talented ghostwriter with experience in this Genre and who can write in a free-flowing and easy to read style, though still coming across as a professional high quality read. I would also expect the writer to undertake checking and editing as part of the scope of services.
The storyline and characters are set, so it would be a matter of writing the story as well as expanding on the screenplay where required to create the novel. Some additional ideas may be required on your part to ensure the length of the novel is adequate.
The writer would have to be extremely talented with preference given to those who have been previously published. I would like to read samples of your work to ensure your style suits the general feel of the story.
I am anticipating a 4 week turnaround though would be flexible based on your current requirements and feel that getting the right person is more important than timing.
I also have treatments written for a prequel and sequel and will consider the awarded writer as first preference for these at a later date.
Look forward to reviewing your details.
