However, our focus isn't just on our clients, but also on the team that helps make this happen. We love our team and are dedicated to creating an enjoyable work environment. Our working relationship ensures we can keep their calendars full of exciting projects whilst providing them with a steady income.

In return, our writers make sure that every client receives an outstanding experience from start to finish. As a collective, we're always looking for ways to improve our process.

Our current rate is $15 USD per 1,000 words. Our projects range from 20k up to 150k words.

Our busier writers earn $2,000+ a month writing a few hours a day around their studies and other gigs. 


* Our Requirements

We're looking for contemporary romance writers with a good skill level, who are familiar with similar paced roles. Partnered with a good understanding of contemporary romance conventions, we also need writers who understand the intricacies of contemporary romance as well. 


* Desired Bonus Subgenres/Themes

Within contemporary romance, we currently have the most demand for writers that write contemporary romance stories with any of the following additional subgenres/themes hybrids:

  • Alpha male character
  • Bully romance
  • Billionaire romance
  • Paranormal


* Here's what's required to be part of our team

  • You write amazing romance stories. With a lot of tension, suspense, great dialogue, and good character development and characterization.
  • You are US/Canada based, or exceptional writer from a different native English country.
  • You can work with deadlines. We typically deliver 15k words in 1 week/ week and a half.
  • You are knowledgeable in contemporary romance themes/tropes. You understand the readers, you understand the conventions and you can write to market.
  • You take pride in your writing and can consistently deliver high-quality novels. You focus on delivering what the reader and client want.
  • You are looking for a long-term gig and are eager & available to start.
  • You are available throughout the day to respond to team and client messages on our platform.
  • You are reliable, well-spoken, open to constructive criticism and a good communicator.


* Few things to consider before applying

Important: Please submit relevant samples for contemporary romance and samples for any of the bonus subgenres/themes we mentioned above. If you’re successful, we’ll hire you based on your ability to write and your understanding of contemporary romance conventions. We put a lot of emphasis on this as it's vital to understand what the reader wants.

We’ll prioritize those who can commit to at least 3-6 months of work. This is because we love to establish long-term relationships with our team, and also because our clients love to create a series of projects with the same writer. 

Also, you must be able to sit down and write in order to meet deadlines. Good planning should make this easier. Again, availability throughout the day to respond to messages on our platform is essential.

Finally, you must fully understand what a ghostwriting position entails, and that no official credit will be given to you for the work completed.
