Book Maverick is a new site designed to help people discover their next favorite book. Our articles are tailored to help people find books similar to other great reads (i.e. “Books Like Lord of the Flies”). We also cover the best books by particular authors (i.e. “Best Kazuo Ishiguro Books”). From sci-fi to classics, horror to romance, Book Maverick covers an extensive range of books. But the overall aim is consistent: to help people find new books to read!
Do you love reading? Have you been published on any other blogs about books (or written about books for any other online publications)? Are you an author (or aspiring author) yourself? Have you studied literature or writing at some level?
We are looking for writers who can review books in a way that is both interesting and accessible for the general reader. You should be able to:
- Describe the general plot without giving too much away
- Excite someone to purchase and read a book
- Recommend and compare books based on your personal experience
- Write about books you haven’t read in full (i.e. just based on the blurb, intro and reviews) because we don’t expect you to have read everything)
- Have excellent spelling and grammar skills
- Keep up with deadlines
- Work with our editor and our publishing process
We will be contracting several writers to regularly contribute to Book Maverick. If you love to read/write and share your favorite stories with others, we want you on our team! Please send us your resume/CV and state in your application an overview of your writing experience. Also give us an idea of the kinds of books you like to read (which genres/authors). Please include up to 3 relevant writing samples. We look forward to hearing from you!
