    I need help writing some books. I am looking for an English speaking writer with good quality grammar skills who writes with error-free spelling to take on a couple of book projects. Topics are The Future and also a book about Network Marketing. I have a couple of books already I would like re-written -- I want it rewritten as an original piece based on the material included in the books. No article spinners need respond at all. I would like people to be able to read both books and not realize one was a rewrite of the other.

    I want real writers who can start and finish projects. I will send you chapters to be written, then you write them, then sent them back to me. The books I am using to rewrite the content from are 250 pages (Future) and then 175 (Network Marketing.) I need each of the books finished within a month. I will pick a couple of writers, unless you feel you can comfortably do the job for both books.

    If you think you have the skills I am looking for, please feel free to drop me a PM. Please include fees and TAT. No games please, I am on a deadline.

    PS> I did post this earlier in another part of the forum a few days ago. This was the section it should have been posted in to begin with. :)

    Hi,

    1) Are they your books?

    2) If not do you own copyright or have the holders permission?

    3) From your post you seemed to have offered something you cannot deliver - that is not a good idea.

    4) To try and be helpful, the average deal is about $100 for 10,000 words - but that does not mean it is any good.

    GM,
    You said, "From your post you seemed to have offered something you cannot deliver - that is not a good idea." Huh??
    If you are interested in bidding, then please do.

    I am a writer myself, so I am familiar with costs of deals, and that you can't expect Pulitzer Prize authors to be found in BHW.

    @GringoMonkey
    After looking at your profile... I get it. You are new and by the number of replies to posts you are making, I see you are basically just trying to drive up your number of posts.

    You know BHW admins don't take kindly to that...

    Not really I am just being realistic... Number of posts and experience have nothing to do with each other!

    I am not remotely interested in offering my writing services. I was simply pointing out what I consindered to be realistic.

    I did not expect free (a few had offered to show their quality of work)... Techblog if you had taken the time to read my reply via email you would've seen my request for your rates. I cant very well decide on anyone Techblog if I am never given their rates.
