"Divorced" Ghostwriter wanted to completely re-write and update a Divorce eBook manuscript.
I have an ebook manuscript on the subject on divorce that was written by another ghostwriter from an attorney's point of view. I would like to have the book completely re-written from my (a divorced father's) point of view. For this project I feel it is absolutely necessary that you - the ghostwriter - have gone through a difficult divorce yourself and came out better on the other end. Your bid needs to include a little bit of history about your own divorce experience. This book needs to help people who think about getting divorced to avoid the pitfalls, save on legal fees, prepare for what might happen during their divorce, and also suggest real world resource for alternate dispute resolutions, etc. You will need to do some research yourself. My current book has about 150 pages. Legal: 1) Quality of writing: All English writing-related deliverables MUST be of grammatical, structural and logical quality commensurate with written English in a professional journal (unless otherwise stated by the employer). If you are a non-native English speaker you are HIGHLY CAUTIONED AGAINST bidding, unless you are 100% certain that you can provide this level of writing. 2) Writing Copyright: All deliverables MUST be completely your own original work and may not be taken (in whole or in part) from any work that you do not have full and complete copyrights to (unless otherwise stated by the employer). 2a) You may not quote material from other sources unless the employer explicitly gives you permission to do so. If they do, you must surround that material with quotes and cite the source with enough detail so it can be verified. 2b) You may not paraphrase from other sources unless the employer explicitly gives you permission to do so. If they do, you must follow generally accepted standards for paraphrasing. Merely rearranging words and phrases from another source is considered plagiarism and is illegal. To correctly paraphrase, you should read the original and then close the book/source so you cannot see it and then write the entire material from scratch using your own words. (Note: Paraphrasing is legal by U.S. law when the work is considered 'Fair Use'...which generally means it will NOT be used commercially and ONLY for educational purposes. On the other hand, if you may know or suspect the work may not be 'Fair Use', please inform or consult with vWorker 2c) If you infringe any copyright you will forfeit all escrowed funds under the terms of 'fraud' in your contract and may have your account suspended. DO NOT BID ON THIS PROJECT unless you fully understand United States copyright law and it's ramifications to you. 3) All deliverables will be considered 'work made for hire' under U.S. Copyright law. Employer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. 3b) No part of the deliverable may contain any copyright restricted 3rd party components (including GPL, GNU, Copyleft, etc.) unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the employer on the site per the worker's 'Worker Legal Agreement'.
