Project Description

I am looking for a ghost writer.

I'm looking to hire non-fiction ebook writers who are experienced at conducting research, and who can express themselves in a very conversational and empathetic style even if the subject matter is detailed and complex.

The target market for most of these books will be people looking for self help. Right now there are two books to be written. If the first book is successfully written , the second one will be given.

The first book will be on the subject of relationships, similar books would be "men are from mars, women from Venus " or "Why men don't listen or women can't read maps" Topics will have critical, urgent and mass appeal to i.e., issues and subject matter that may keep them up at night, or at least pining away during the day. The book will be a self help book. The title for the book as been established. The book must be very amusing yet serious in giving a message.

If you have no experience writing deeply researched non-fiction books & ebooks -- this isn't for you. I’m not looking for wannabes. To be considered I’ll need to receive your ebook samples (a 750-word article is not an ebook).

The ebooks to be written must be authoritatively presented, hence footnoted. And as such, the writers will function more like editors, curators of information, if you will.

The first book will be approx 200 pages and subsequent books will vary in length, depending on the focus. They can be as short as 75 pages or as long as 150 -200 pages.

Turnaround time is not an issue -- if you need a month, or two -- that's up to you.

I'm looking for quality writing -- not speed.

Prior to the commissioning of a book, I will need to see a proposal/outline. A summary basically, outlining what will be in each chapter and why.

The book's topic will be discussed and resolved beforehand.
