If so, then THIS is the job for you!
If you're passionate about reading romance books and you are very well read in the genre, then you'll love this job! I want someone who loves the romance genre in all its forms and is passionate about the topic! Someone who would LOVE to help other people find the best romance reads out there!
Your job will be to help write a number of detailed romance recommendation lists. The lists will touch many different romance subgenres. We are talking book lists with the titles like “Top 25 Best Romance Books Ever”, “Best Modern Romance Books”, ‘Best Classic Romance Books", "Best Supernatural Romances", "Best Bodice Rippers", “Best BSDM Romances” etc.
The project will entail 10 - 15 or so lists for now, each containing the top 25 or so ranked recommendations. Likely anywhere from 500 to 1000 US in work with an eye for more work in the future.
You’ll need to write between 200-300 words per recommendation in a witty, sarcastic, and entertaining style. You’ll need to convince the read WHY the book is ranked on the list and why it’s considered one of the best books in the genre. Of course, you’ll also NEED to really know what you’re are talking about. You'll have to do research about the topic to come up with the best lists. I will help out by forwarding my own soft recommendations to help out, but I don’t claim to be very well versed in the romance genre out of the box.
Some examples of what sort of lists /writing I’m expecting you to do as far as the style of writing I'm looking for:

==HOW TO APPLY==
#1. YOU MUST be a native born English speaker. That means if you are not born in Canada, America, the UK, Australia, New Zeland and or somewhere where proper English is the first language, don't apply. I have nothing against ESL speakers, but for the context of this project, I need native-born English speakers WHO love reading romance books and have a good knowledge of the genre already. That means if you are from the Indian or African subcontinent, I won't even read your message. So don't waste my time and your time applying. I need people who are proper writers.
#2. Send me a message with a 100 word paragraph stating what you know about romance books, your long relationship with the romance genre, what romance books you've read, and otherwise convince me that you actually know your sh*T when it comes to the romance genre. Preference here will be given to women as most romance novel readers are female and I want someone who KNOWS there genre.
YOU WILL NOT BE HIRED IF YOU ARE NOT WELL-READ IN THE ROMANCE GENRE. I'm looking for people who have a good deal of knowledge about the romance genre before starting this project. Also explain to me your past writing qualifications -- have you worked as a writer, do you have a blog, do you attend romance book conventions, etc. If I don't get this message in my inbox from you, you won't be considered for the job.
