I am looking to hire a mystery storyteller and creative writer in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, or Puerto Rico to write a high-quality 10K word cozy mystery story for my blog.


I am looking for content similar to what you would find in a book like this one: (this link is only for reference to provide you an idea of what type and style of writing we are looking for).


I am ONLY looking for unique original content, and will not accept or pay for any writing that is plagiarized or stolen from other sources, including the book we listed above. We check all submissions.


Viable candidates will be native English speakers and have a background in English spelling/punctuation/grammar. Here are the qualities that the writer who wins this bid will have:

  • Skilled at mystery plotting and enjoys planting clues
  • Skilled at character and conflict development that engages readers
  • Expert use of cliffhangers that keep readers wanting more
  • Ability to write humorous scenes and dialogue
  • Loves creating strong, independent female characters (of all ages)
  • Understands the concept of ‘book modeling’
  • Exceptional communication skills (verbal and written)
  • Ability to meet all project deadlines


I give my writers space to promote imagination/creativity in the writing process. If the quality of your writing is good, I'm also looking for creative mystery writers who are willing to have a long-term business relationship. Special consideration will be given to writers who have previous experience writing cozy mysteries.


I need this project completed quickly (so please state how long it will take you to plot and write the story)


Requirements for this project:

1. The final document must be in Word format

2. Using 12pt Times New Roman font, 1.5 line spacing, and 0.5 paragraph indentions (first line)

3. Writer must provide a 200-300 word blurb/description of the story that will entice readers


I am currently looking to pay $125 per 10k words. Please provide writing samples that reflect your mystery-writing skills (Samples that are strictly Romance will not be accepted).

Thank you for applying and best wishes!
