Project Description

I am the best-selling author of a popular fantasy eBook called 'FROST ARCH (BOOK 1: THE FIRE MAGE TRILOGY) that is currently for sale exclusively on Amazon. This eBook is only available in English.
However, many people in Germany have also bought my book. The countries that (mostly) buy this book are:

2) UK
3) DE

Therefore, I would like my 100,000 word novel completely translated by a native German speaker with writing/ghostwriting abilities.
I understand that some elements may not translate well, if at all. There are some jokes/phrases that may only make sense in English.
That is why some creative writing ability is also essential, as this is a fantasy novel.

Incorrect/literal translations will result in poor reviews from German readers, and therefore NO/LOW sales. This will affect YOURS, and MY pay check.

You will receive an upfront payment of no more than $100, PLUS I am willing to share the profits of the sale of this eBook 50/50. This means you will receive your 50% share of the eBook sales monthly, no matter how big or small. I will provide you with monthly reports given to me by Amazon as proof of the books sales/earnings.

IF this book sells well there will be more work for you, translating books #2 and #3 in the trilogy. (All books are full-length novels ranging from 75,000 - 100,000 words) This translation WILL TAKE TIME. These books are 300-400 pages long. I do not want this rushed. There is no deadline.
You will share in 50% of the profits from all German translation version book sales. Not only that but you will also be recognized as co-author, and listed on amazon.

I understand that this may be a risk, without knowing how much $$$ you can make from sales. I too am taking a risk by offering this eBook in another language. This will be a joint business venture between you and I. There is no guarantee that this eBook will sell.

If you are willing to take a risk please apply. I have uploaded a DOC ([url removed, login to view]) which you must translate to pass the initial test.
I will have a native German speaker read your translation to ensure it makes perfect sense.


Thank you.
Kate Bloomfield
