English-to-French translation of a sci-fi romance novel

We are looking for a native French speaker with experience translating fiction to translate a sci-fi romance novel from English into French. The novel is ~88k words. Additionally, the chosen candidate would help us with some minor marketing-related tasks in French, such as setting up a book description, the author website, and drafting emails to French book-reviewing blogs.

As part of the application, please be prepared to provide a sample of your skills by translating an excerpt of the novel for us (3 scenes totaling approx. 1800 words). These samples will then be used to select the finalist.

Please mention if any of these apply to you:

1) You have translated a work of fiction and can provide information about it

2) You read romance in English or French. You read fantasy novels in either of the languages.

3) French is your native language and you have full mastery of English.

Content warning: This novel is a ROMANCE with all that it implies, so please consider that before applying.
