Project Description

I have a number of novellas and novels that I have written or half-written or started writing but never finished that need extensive editing and rewriting. I'm looking for a small group of writers/editors that can help me clean them up and get them ready.

I'm also looking for some talented writers to take some of my story ideas/concepts and turn them into novellas.

Most of the novellas are about 10,000-25,000 words (sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more)

As far as editing, I will often give you an extensive list of editorial notes and changes I want made to the novel and then your job is to make those changes. Sometimes it could be something as small as me saying "line edit this please and make these sentences pop", or as detailed as "cut this character completely and add a mother-in-law subplot, no, make it a father-in-law and make him from Brazil") and then you'd send it to me.

I could afford to pay something like $50 per every 5000 words that you'd be editing, writing or rewriting.

I look for super talented storytellers, people who write very fast (meaning less than one week) who are incredibly easy to work with and able to meet deadlines. This could lead to long-term work, if you're interested and there's a match.

If interested, please send me a couple of short samples of your work. If it's your work as an editor, show me the before and after. Before it was edited by you and afterward.

You must understand that this is a work-for-hire/ghostwriter situation where I own all the rights.

If the budget is not good for you, please don't message me to complain. My budget is my budget.

NOTE: Please, message me with SAMPLES of your fiction writing so that I can see it. Or Samples of the Before and After versions of the editing or rewriting or line editing you've done for fiction.
