Dear Ghostwriter,

I was working as a Helicopterskiing Guide and collected a bunch of funny stories for a book (roughly a 150-200 pages). I wrote the book in German and now search for somebody who can write it in good English with an outstanding sense of humor (pretty much as the book: “Monkey business – swinging through the Wall Street Jungle” was written).

My offer would be to tell the stories over skype. Ideally that is not even required because you are bilingual. I had the book translated with an automated e-translater (extremely bad English).

Some affinity to sports might be an advantage but a great sense of humor is mandatory!!! You will also need to bring the humor into the stories instead of just doing the translation.

I suggest we agree on a fee per 1000 words. This gives me the chance to get an idea of your writing skills. If both parties are happy the whole book can be written like that!

The book does not to be ready in the next weeks ...
