HISTORICAL ROMANCE SHORT STORY: 15,000 words with a Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

I am looking for someone to write a series of short stories in the historical romance genre.

I am looking for a strong Jane Austen feel.

These stories will probably comprise individual series of four books or more with a word count of approximately 15,000 words each.

This will be ongoing work for the right applicant.

I will pay $180 per book and it should be noted that I treat my freelance writers very well providing they treat me in the same way :) (all good stories completed in a timely manner).

If you are chosen to write these books I would ask that you first provide a 1500 word sample of the beginning of the first book (I will let you know the genre and provide supporting info) plus an overall plot outline for the book that you will be writing for which I will pay you $20.

The short story intro is going to show me your ability to plot, your understanding of story, and your ability to use conflict within a story and whether or not you can write for this genre.

If the sample looks good then I will ask you to carry on and complete the book and the remaining $160 for that book will be paid. I ask that you do this as anyone can provide a sample of their past work (which you will need to provide with your application) but I will not know if it is yours or indeed if you are able to write in this genre until I see what you can offer.

Whatever happens, you will get an insight into another genre and make $20 as a minimum in doing so.

So, basically what I am offering is;

1500 word initially for $20 (with outline of your intended plot)

Further 13,500 words for $160

Further books of 15,000 words or so at $180 each on a regular basis

If we work well together and the quality of stories is good (all good stories completed in a timely manner) then I may, at my discretion, add a 10% to 15% bonus to reward good work.

A reader should be able to be read these as stand-alone books by themselves such that someone casually picking up a book from the middle or end of the series can read another in the same series without necessarily needing to understand what happened before.

Now, please take note that I need someone who can write a story that will enthrall the reader and have a defined beginning, middle, end structure / story arc.

You need to understand story, I don't need someone who thinks they understand, what I need is someone who can truly craft a piece of well written entertainment.

Editing for spelling and basic grammar errors isn't that difficult, I can work with that, but I cannot work with someone who thinks they are a writer but isn't.

If you understand story…

If you understand how to write so your characters are developed more through action and less through silent monologue…

If you understand romance…

If you understand historical romance…

Then this might be up your alley.

I will gift you a sample series of books from this genre so that you are able to understand the way these type of books are put together and I will also provide a ghost-writer package giving all of the necessary background to allow you to get a head start for this genre.

Please understand before applying that you must be able to hold the reader's attention and draw them in such that when they preview the book using say the Amazon 'Look Inside' previewer they are captivated enough to want to purchase the book to find out what happens next and you must be able to provide entertainment throughout the book so that they are likely to want to purchase the next book in the series.

Perhaps a tall order? If so please do not apply but if this floats your boat and you do a good job then I will undoubtedly be using you again and the rates of pay will most definitely rise to reflect your accomplishments.

I hope this opportunity is of interest and I look forward to hearing from you.

Please provide two samples of your work, ideally historical romance.

1. What genres have you written for in the past?

2. Who is your favorite Jane Austen character and why?
