What is your industry?

Describe your audience

Teenagers and adults who love a good story that takes them on a journey and gives them something new to experience.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through this book?

First and most important the story has to be an original idea, nothing even remotely similar to the millions of stories people are already familiar with. It should fulfill the readers' expectations of a best selling book. It has to have mystery, thrill, suspense, obstacles and ultimately triumph in the end.
As a rule, if the reader is not interested in the first 2 pages of your story you will have lost him forever.
The story can be of any genre, be it science-fiction, fantasy or real world...

Please include chapter titles or a table of contents

List specific information that must be included

Up to the Creative

What character, tenor and spirit do you want to convey?

Upbeat, fun, intriguing, mystery, adventure... Basically it has to be worth the readers time!

What is your required length in words or pages for this book?

Minimum 12,000 words. Don't need it all at first, just an outline of your story would give me a good idea of whether it interests me or not.

Do you want to include any additional info?

Please keep in mind that I intend to publish this story on sites like Amazon and so I will need the final files in .pdf, .doc(Word) and epub format for Kindle and e-book reader publishing.

Hi all,

We just wanted to let you know that the buyer in this project has requested a refund. And, because we offer buyers a money back guarantee, sometimes we have to make good on that promise.

To reward the loyal creatives who worked hard on this project and all the others on the site, we've taken the proceeds from this project and used them to fund our monthly cS Awards program. The cS Awards are issued every month based on varying criteria but are a simple way that we give back to the community and reward our creatives.

Thanks so much for participating and see you around the site,

The cS crew
