I tried to send the below message, but couldn't after picking the writer for the job. I'm sorry.
"I wanted to let you know we picked the other writer for this particular project, but we'd like to ask you to write for us. You were a very close second.
Please tell us your favorite erotica subgenres to write about, and we will create a project for you via invitation only. It will probably take two weeks to post to Freelancer. The parameters will be the same as for this project.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you about your writing preferences."
I do look forward to hearing from you. I've made this project due in 30 days. We need to space our budget, and I didn't want you to think we didn't like your work.
All stories created for us need to be unique, original, and unpublished. You guarantee they won't be sold, published, or posted anywhere else and that we have full, exclusive rights.
