Editting / Ghostwriting to finalise an adult themed black comedy fictional autobiography.

Project Description: 

We are looking to attract a writer who can help shape a fictional adult themed comedy book written as an autobiography as a collation of short stories with an underlying plot of main character development. This piece is written along the lines of “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” by Tucker Max.

106,000 words have already been written, but we are looking to have the book shaped and proof read for areas of character development and identification of story gaps for finalization. It is intended that the final piece will be approximately 120,000, so there is an opportunity to shape the existing content and bring it towards it’s final connection of stories.

This is ongoing work for successful applicants if delivery is satisfactory. This is a ghostwriting/editing/shaping assignment that means the writer will not have their name on the work in any capacity and cannot claim rights to the story upon completion.

The successful applicant must agree to a copyright release and non-compete agreement. This is a 'work for hire' ghostwriting position and I/we will have sole and exclusive rights to the work.

Finally, the content/story gaps should be highlighted and you can add to them, but we need you to provide guidance to gaps and areas of enhancing the underlying plot. The current book has been pulled together by an individual over a period of time but it now needs to be brought together to have a consistent flow, therefore we’d like this highlighted and shape/content added to the book.

Your responsibilities:

- Create high-quality content that matches the intended voice and style

- Contribute ideas on improving existing messaging and content

- Provide consistency similar to the style (“I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” by Tucker Max is a book reference comparison).

Your qualifications:

- Fluent English including excellent writing, grammar, spelling and formatting

- A work style that is creative

- Strong communication skills

- A strong portfolio that demonstrates an ability to create compelling copy

- References or an established reputation preferred

I am looking for a writer whose writing is compelling, concise and creative. Someone who can rewrite, if required, and polish the existing writing to resonate with the style required.

The book is expected to be completed within 21 days (3 weeks) from commencement.

Fiction sample must be provided for consideration and this should include graphic depictions of creative writing.

If you are interested please send me books/excerpts you have written along with your proposal.
