Do you have a book in you but don’t know where to begin?
Do you have something to teach the world but you don’t know how to express yourself in the language readers want to read? You might consider hiring a ghostwriter.
Ghostwriters specialize in creating books, stories, articles, website or blog content, scripts, business-development presentations, whitepapers and other material that is credited to another person. Those who typically hire ghostwriters include business executives, celebrities in the worlds of sports or entertainment, leaders of nonprofit organizations, and political leaders. Ghostwriting clients are typically busy people. They want and need to focus their attention on leading their organizations or participating in community affairs. Some admit they do not have patience to write and rewrite, while others simply do not want to devote the time that is typically required to create interesting, inspiring material for their audiences.
Many ghostwriters specialize by genre: Novels, memoirs, autobiographies, self-help guides, business case studies, inspirational and motivational books, articles, blog posts, and the like. Others, however, are open to taking on a variety of projects.
Through a series of phone meetings or (when feasible) in-person interviews, during which I will use a customized interview guide, we will discuss specifics about your intended audiences; what you want to accomplish; whether you have already started the article or book; how far along you are; and how much time you have to devote to the project. I will develop an outline for you to review and approve, after which we will agree on timeline and pricing.
Pricing depends on the type and length of the book, the estimated amount of research required to master the subject matter and adopt your tone and style (your “voice”), your availability and your timeline, and whether you have an agent, publisher and publicist lined up.
