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.

    Since you’re on my profile reading this, I must assume you're somewhat vaguely considering the option of hiring me. Let me just say that’s great! But first let me ask you the obvious question: why haven’t you yet? Are you concerned I might not do the job properly? Don’t be! I handle every project the same way a fat man eats his meals. That is with a particularly grim determination. I know it’s a weird comparison, but trust me, you’ll like what I produce. I've been making a living by writing, ghostwriting, translating and editing for a while now - let me know how I can help you as well.

    Eureka,  United States

    I currently work as a sales professional at a small dealership in Eureka, CA. Being in this line of work gives me a very unique perspective on the world and allows me to see it in completely different ways. I am a strong believer in Co-incidences and Intuition and command both in my writing and daily life. I also have one of those crazy and unheard of brains that never lost it's youthful imagination. I am the young mother of two wonderful children that keep me sharp on the importance of playing and enjoying everything that I do. My life has always followed a path that I can never anticipate or predict. However, my command of language makes all my adventures have purpose because I am able to not only expierence it all, but also a unique side line observation that allows me to share my world with others. You can learn something from everyone you meet. From bumbs to kings everyone has a story. I want to learn from them all. Everyday is a Co-incidence. Make today a good one! I offer a unique way of looking at the world that comes through in my writing. I am an excelent and indivdual writer of both fiction, I can weave a good yarn, and non-fiction, tough essays are incredible. I also am a very effective blogger and have quite the knack for putting expierences into purposeful writing. I can effectively edit all of my own work, as my mother is a freelance copy editior, I have indeed learned from the best. I have never wrote professionally before, though I am published in a selection of short stories created for children. I attended some college for my creative writing ambitions, but the the real world slapped me square in the jaw and I had my son very young, which meant entering the work force at eighteen to provide for a growning family. However, I have had numerious professional writers and teachers acclaim my work, and brain for that matter, for a uniqueness in presentation and content. I am very dedicated and can give you exactly what you were looking for. Who knows, I might even give you much more than you ever expected.
