Before any writing or speaking takes place, I work with each client to identify the topic of their book and to create an outline detailing each chapter. Everything below follows this critical step.
Please check ALL that apply:
We have one client who is doing their own writing and has a strong "negative" tone to their writing. Their intent is to use their book to impress future recruiters for jobs they apply for. Are you someone who is really strong with reframing things in a positive tone? Honestly, there's some artistry involved in accomplishing this so I expect this task is not for everyone.
Each book we create will potentially have 3 bios:
Ideally, I'd like to choose a single writer to write all of the bios we have in queue. Before we begin we'll discuss what you'll want from each of our clients in order to write the bio. (We expect that you'll want at least their resume and LinkedIn profile) In some cases, you'll be provided with the bio the client is currently using. You'll be entitled to copy directly from their resume and LinkedIn profile as needed.
We have a document template we're using for every book we're producing. We are looking for a contractor who can take an unformatted Word document and apply the formatting from our template. Since they will only be using the existing styles, this resource is a junor level candidate at a rate significantly below what we'd pay a writer/editor.
I can teach the process to someone with a basic familiarity of Word, who is detail oriented, and has a good work ethic.
Can you recommend someone who might be able to perform this role? If you'd like to recommend yourself, please include an hourly rate you'd want for this type of work. I'm an advocate of "split billing" where different tasks pay different rates.
We're looking for a junor level candidate who can assist with preparing our cover designs. We're using pre-built book cover templates so a basic framework is already in place. They'll select one or more of the templates and prepare "mock ups" using photos from our stock photography account. Photoshop experience is required. Do you have someone you can recommend?
