Project Description

Ghostwrite a short story of any genre, be it science-fiction, thriller, romance, comedy etc. The story should be ready to publish on e-book readers like Kindle and ready to upload to publishing sites like Should be minimum 10,000 words. I don't want the story to be filled with pure action nonsense with zero plot. It has to be a great quality story. Whether it's a hero or an anti-hero, the main character just has to be interesting. "District 9" and "Source Code" are examples of sci-fi thriller movies. "All You Need Is Kill" is example of sci-fi thriller book. They all have humor, a bit of romance, drama, action, an impending doom of time running out, great villain(s), central mystery, great twists, tragedy, etc. It has to appeal to teenagers and young adults. Something that would transition well into a movie.

Ray Nelson's short story "Eight O'Clock in the Morning" is a great example of a sci-fi thriller short story ([url removed, login to view]) [url removed, login to view]

All of these examples I've given hit all the right notes on what I believe to be a great thriller ([url removed, login to view]). Relentless push forward, central mystery, great villain, escalating conflict, hard right turn in the midpoint of the story, fast opening crisis, great suspense, high suspense, grave consequences, high stakes, etc, all in a storyline.

A story concept / plot pitch and a small sample writing of that story will help me to choose. A full story isn't necessary right away at this stage.
