A international publisher with head office in London is looking for a NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKING journalist, or writer, who is available right now, with no distraction, to produce a 20,000-word summary /abridged version of a 100,000-word political book. Political journalist or political writer with experience would be ideal. If you are a writer who has previously written non-fiction book summaries in the past then this would be perfect.
From the offers received, up to 5 journalists/writers are going to be immediately invited and tested for this work and will be asked to produce a summary version of 2 chapters of this book, which will be two 500-word summaries of about 2,500-word chapters, so a 1,000-word summary from a 5,000 word document. This 1,000-word document needs to be produced within 24 hours and will be paid $100, regardless as to whether selected thereafter.
The journalist/writer selected will then have to produce the 20,000-word summary manuscript of the full book within 5 days. We’ll buy the full rights for USD$2,000 to have full ownership rights to publish the 20,000 summary as soon as we have read it, reviewed it with the writer, and approved it. It has to be an original work with absolutely no extracts taken from the original book, neutrally written in easy-to-understand English and containing all the important stories contained within the original book.
Also, a USD$500 royalty on each USD$100,000 of sales will be paid to the writer/journalist on all net world sales over USD$400,000 (net sales are gross sales of the selling price, without VAT/sales tax). World sales include the printed version, electronic version (ebooks) and audiobook versions. The sales of the translated copies sold worldwide will be also included in the royalty package.
The 20,000-word final document will be published under a pen name.
Resume and references required.
Serious offer for potential long-term relationship with other similar projects in the future.
