We are looking an amazing cozy mystery writer who is familiar with Jessica Fletcher, Leighann Dobbs, Agatha Raisin, Joanne Fluke, Agatha Frost, etc.
The book length is 10,000 - 15,000 words and will be the first in a series. You will need to be familiar with cozy mysteries: small town, female amateur sleuth, lots of red herrings, a touch of humour and perhaps romance (if needed to push the plot).
All work is to be 100% original, and delivered edited and ready to publish. Turnaround time is seven days for 15,000 words. (Time & Budget can be adjusted for the right writer.) You also need to speak/read/write FLUENT English.
This is a work for hire contract – the buyer owns all rights to the content. A contract will be provided and signed by both parties prior to commencement of any work.
Pay will increase after we see how the first one does and we are looking to work with you for LONG-TERM as we have several projects on the go.
We thank all those that apply, please put "Red Herring" into the subject line before applying with your cover letter and resume and samples of your work.
*Note - We are looking for 2 Cozy Mystery Writers to put at least 3-5 books out in each series. If you read any of the above mentioned authors, you will know exactly what we are looking for. Right now we are thinking of a traditional cozy and a paranormal (magic) cozy mystery. My budget is $.01 per word, so $150 for 15,000 words. If you can't do it for that, please don't apply. Rates will increase after the first book.
