Project Description

My name is Paul T. Goldman and I am the author of "Duplicity - A True Story of Crime and Deceit" and, is fictional sequels under my pseudonym Ryan Sinclair, "The Paul T. Goldman Chronicles." In "Duplicity," I discovered that my (now ex) wife was leading a secret, illegal double life as a madam and prostitute. I also discovered that the ring was involved in international human trafficking, bringing in girls from Southeast Asia to join the ring. In "The Chronicles of Paul T. Goldman," I turned Paul T. Goldman from a guy who unknowingly married a hooker into an action hero, fighting against global human trafficking, starting with the ring led by his ex wife and her pimp, "Royce Rocco."

I am now considering another fictional series, "The Johnny Goldman Chronicles." This series will be the adventures of my son Johnny Goldman.

Here's the premise: before Paul left for London to track down the leads he uncovered in "Duplicity," Paul left Johnny, and his dog Queenie, with his brother Dave and his wife (and their 4 dogs).

In "Duplicity," Paul actually ended up becoming a pretty good detective, analyzing the clues to her double life hidden in his wife's bank statements and phone logs

The premise is that Johnny has inherited this ability.

Johnny is 13 years old. This is a YA series. Therefore, no profanity, sex or violence.

The writing style must be as follows: 90% direct dialogue, probably from Johnny's point of view, 10% description. The word count of each is to be NO MORE THAN 10,000 words. 20-25 typed pages, maximum. Think of it as a script for a half hour television show, which of course is only 22 minutes long, the other 8 minutes being commercials.

I envision at least 10 "Johnny Chronicles," if readers like it.

This is work for hire only. No writing credit is offered, no royalties or residuals. No residuals of any kind are offered, (including but not limited to books, dvd's, electronic downloads, merchandise, or any future medium) for either the sale of the e-book, if I find a "traditional" publisher to put it into bookstores, or if Hollywood wants to turn the story into a film or television series.

The title that I put for this story, "What happened at the basketball game" is just a possibility. The idea is that some mystery has occurred, either at home, school or in the neighborhood.

Feel free to change the name if you have a better story line.

You are to use your imagination to create Johnny's world of friends, neighbors, school, etc.

For me to judge each bidder's creative ability and style, I request that along with your bid you write the first 1000 words or so.

So you will have a better understanding of the background, I am attaching my ebook, "The Paul T. Goldman Chronicles, - Chronicle I - The London Incident." Feel free to read the whole thing, as it is short, but specifically please read up to page 19 which tell how Paul became an operative and left Johnny with his brother Dave.

Thank you.
