I need someone to write a 20,000 word middle grade humorous novel. I already have the entire book outlined. I just need someone to ghost write it for my client. I've also written 2 sample chapters so that you can see the voice & style I want it written in. There are 10 chapters in this book but you can make more chapters or less chapters it's up to you as long as it is about 20,000 words.

The deadline for this would be within 30 days. You would send me chapters as you complete them. Chapters can be short and snappy with a hook at the end that will make the reader (ideally a boy ages 8-11 years old) want to read more.

I have a very small budget but I have very good connections with literary agents if you don't have one yet that I can pitch you to. Attached is a sample chapter.

The story is basically about a wimpy boy that gets super powers. You are welcome to submit a sample page or two and any of your credentials.
