I've decided that I want to hire someone to do background research for my next non-fiction book. I would give them a list of tasks. I need them to be able to write a proper summery and gather details.

This is a one-off project with possible work in the future.  Looking to pay a flat fee.

Anyone have a success story with working with a VA? Where did you find them?

I did see some listings in UPWORK but that site is annoying. You have to verify your email before proceeding, but they don't send the verificaton email.  They also hide any kind of support and force you to use a "chat bot" who knows squat.

Recommendations welcome!

    PS, I have been PM'd by people interested in the job. Please note, you must be comfortable with and support BLM in order to work on the gig. Thanks.

    Well, if the translator is human, then he/she/it is hardly virtual....

    ???? Don't understand your response. Not looking for a translator.
