What Do I Need to Consider When Choosing a Ghostwriter?
The Internet is littered with online writing and editing services, making it nearly impossible to sift through the scams and find a legitimate and trustworthy service. Here are some questions to ask when you’re vetting companies to ensure that you pick a reliable firm for all your writing and editing needs:
- Is the price right? If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Developing a high-quality book can take hundreds of hours of work and requires a high level of expertise—don’t be tempted by third-rate writers who market “affordable” prices.
- Who owns the rights to the book? It’s your book, which means you should own the rights to your content. Be wary of ghostwriters asking for partial rights to your material.
- What is the payment arrangement? You should always pay for ghostwriting services in installments and never 100% upfront. After the initial deposit, you should make subsequent payments only if you’re happy with what the ghostwriter has written up to that point. You should have clearly defined milestones for payments to ensure that you and your writer know what to expect.
- Who’s in charge? Working with a ghostwriter is a collaborative effort, but you should have the final say on all content decisions. If a writer is unwilling to put your needs and requests first, then it will not be your book—it will be theirs.
- Is the service confidential? This is YOUR book. A ghostwriter’s name should never appear on the completed manuscript unless you want it to be there.
Whatever service you decide to use, be sure to protect yourself. Make certain that you are working with a reputable and experienced company.
What If I Don’t Need Every Service Included in Your Ghostwriting Package?
Feel free to pick and choose which services you want from us. We can often reduce the pricing if you prefer fewer services. We’re happy to customize our services to meet your needs.
Do I Have to Give the Ghostwriter Credit?
No! That is why it is called ghostwriting—no one will know you had help with the writing process unless you choose to tell them. Our services are 100% confidential. We do not retain any rights or ownership of your book whatsoever—it is your book. Even if your book earns a million dollars, you will never owe us any credit or extra compensation unless you choose to do so. Be skeptical of other ghostwriting services that may require such promises from you.
Can I Claim Full Credit as Author Even Though I Didn’t Write the Book?
Yes, absolutely. The story we help you to tell will always be your story. No one will ever know that you had assistance with the writing process unless you choose to tell them.
Are Your Services 100% Confidential?
What Is the Typical Ghostwriting Process?
Your complete satisfaction is our priority, which is why our ghostwriting process is designed to ensure that we are always meeting your expectations.
Our ghostwriting process is customized to your preferences. We can work with you as consultants and editors as you develop the content on your own or we can ghostwrite the book for you based on interviews and other information you provide us. We typically gather information via e-mail and phone conversations, though the process may also include in-person interviews, site visits, and independent research as necessary.
Here is the typical ghostwriting process:
- Getting to Know You and Your Publishing Goals: The first step in the ghostwriting process is understanding the author—you! We’ll discuss your ghostwriting needs, personal preferences, schedule, and publishing goals, as well as help you decide what strategy will work best for you and your book.
- Planning: A writer and managing editor will discuss your book concept with you in depth and begin developing a detailed outline of your book.
- Writing and Revisions: The writer will develop 3 to 5 pages at a time, which will then be sent to you to review and provide feedback. The writer will then revise the segment per your preferences and resubmit it to you for review and another round of feedback. We will not continue with the writing process until you’re completely happy with each segment.
- Editing and Formatting: Once the ghostwriting is complete, another editor will review the manuscript and ensure that it is free of grammatical error. At this time, we will also format the manuscript for the applicable publishing outlets (self-publishing, PDF, eBook, etc.).
- Publishing: If you wish to seek out a traditional publisher for your book, we will develop your query letter or book proposal and provide you with a list of reputable literary agents to contact.
How Long Does the Ghostwriting Process Typically Take?
The duration of the ghostwriting process is partly up to you. Depending on your schedule and desired level of involvement, your ghostwriter will develop material for you to review and approve on a weekly or biweekly basis. While every book is unique, on average, a 200-page manuscript will take between three and six months to develop. We can often rush these services for you if you need to meet a specific publishing date.
Is Ghostwriting Ethical?
Absolutely! The most important elements in writing a book are the ideas—and as the author and initiator of your book, the ideas are all yours. Even if you don’t consider yourself a writer or are too busy to develop a publishable book, your voice still deserves to be heard. The ghostwriting process is simply a means to get your wisdom, methods, story, or ideas into the world!
Can I Include My Own Writing? Will this Save Me Money?
Yes and yes! We will gladly edit and incorporate any content that you provide. Depending on the strength of the content you’ve written, it may save you a lot of money!
How Much Do Ghostwriting Services Cost?
Every ghostwriting project is uniqueso the pricing is flexible and varies according to what you choose to include in your package. We customize our services for every client, which means the price is negotiable and based on the specifics of your project. Our comprehensive ghostwriting and publishing packages typically include phone time with the ghostwriter, an original query letter, a book cover, literary agent search, and publishing services, which means the price for your book will vary according to your publishing goals and needs.
What if I Just Want Feedback and Consultation on My Book?
Our editing and consultation services are perfectly suited for writers who are looking to improve their work. We can provide whatever level of input you’d like—overarching feedback on the structure and concept of the book, critical review on the flow and transitions, or copyediting changes to the text itself. We can also address specific questions or concerns as per your request.
I’m Preparing for a Speech and Presentation—Do You Offer Ghostwriting Services for This?
Yes! While we focus primarily on writing books and other lengthier content, we also have experts on staff with extensive experience in writing speeches, presentations, and articles. In addition to writing content, we can develop presentation aids, such as PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi, and more. The process will be tailored to your needs and usually includes calls with the writer by phone or Skype and ample e-mail communication. Give us a call or send us an e-mail to find out how we can help you.
My Book Requires Research—Do Your Ghostwriting Services Include This?
Yes, our ghostwriting packages can include research services. Whether your book requires basic Internet searches or rigorous scholarly research, we have writers on staff who can conduct effective research and synthesize it into your book.
Am I Allowed to Choose My Ghostwriter? Can I View a Sample of Their Writing?
In general, we’re very adept at matching clients with the ghostwriter who will best suit them; however, we are also more than willing to provide you with writing samples and credentials for your potential ghostwriter. We can arrange for phone calls between you and potential writers and you are more than welcome to select between several options. Our goal is to make sure you’re fully satisfied with your ghostwriting experience from the very beginning.
Can I Work with My Ghostwriter One-on-One?
Of course! You will have many opportunities to interact with your ghostwriter by phone, Skype, and e-mail. In many cases, you can also meet the ghostwriter in person. Not all of our ghostwriters are available to meet with clients in person, so please be sure to let us as know as soon as possible if in-person meetings with the ghostwriter are essential to your project.
Can I Meet with My Ghostwriter in Person?
Yes, in most cases we can send the ghostwriter to meet with you in person, or we can arrange for you to meet with them at their location. Most clients find that conversations over phone, Skype, and e-mail offer more than enough interaction for the ghostwriter to get to know you and collect the information necessary to ghostwrite your book. However, if it’s important to you that you meet with your ghostwriter in person, we are happy to arrange this for you. Not all of our ghostwriters are available to meet with clients in person, so please be sure to let us know as soon as possible if in-person meetings with the ghostwriter are essential to your project.
How Much Interaction Will I Have with My Ghostwriter and Editor?
You can have as much or as little interaction with your ghostwriter and editor as you’d like! We tailor our process to suit your schedule and your needs. Generally, clients opt to have regular interviews and collaboration sessions with their ghostwriter or editor via phone or Skype, as well as ongoing communication by email. In certain instances, it is also possible to arrange for in-person meetings with your ghostwriter or editor. The entire process can be adapted to best support you!
How Can I Be Sure That a Ghostwriter Will Be Able to Capture My Vision?
Our professional ghostwriters are ready to work closely with you to ensure that the words on the page are as faithful to your vision as possible. Your ghostwriter will develop the material in small batches so that you can give feedback on the style, tone, and content of the writing.
What if It’s Not Working Out with My Assigned Ghostwriter?
If you’re unhappy with the material you’ve received from your writer, you can simply give that feedback directly to the writer or to the managing editor and we will adjust accordingly. Our skilled ghostwriters are able to shift their tone and style based on your preferences to ensure that you connect with the writing. If you are still unhappy with the writing after multiple revisions, we can assign a new writer to the project who is a better match for you—this type of flexibility is one of the unique benefits of working with a professional firm.
Once the Book Is Ghostwritten, How Do You Help with Publishing and Marketing?
We know that the publishing industry can be daunting, especially for first time authors, so we offer consultation and comprehensive support for both traditional and self-publishing outlets. We’ve assisted many first-time and experienced authors with self-publishing their book and securing lucrative book deals through traditional publishing avenues. Most of our all-inclusive ghostwriting packages include an original and customized query letter or book proposal free of charge. This invaluable marketing tool will be used to promote your book to literary agents and publishers. Not sure how to find a reputable literary agent? We’ve got you covered—we’ll provide you with a list of genre appropriate agents to whom you can send your query letter or proposal!
We can also assist you with all aspects of the self-publishing process, from choosing the ideal self-publisher or POD, to formatting your book, developing the book cover, and submitting your manuscript for publication. We’ll help you to decide between self-publishing options, and we can put you in contact with marketing services to get the word out about your book.
I Have an Idea for a Book, But I Don’t Know if It’s Good. Can You Help?
Our consultation services are perfect for authors who have an idea and want to talk it through to weigh the merits and challenges of the project. Our professional publishing consultants can discuss your project with you and give you feedback on the concept, outline, and implementation. Give us a call and tell us about your book idea!
How Involved Will I Need to Be in the Process?
Your level of involvement is entirely up to you. You can opt to work closely with your ghostwriter, or simply provide them with basic information and let them do the rest of the work. This is your book, which means that you have final say on the content and it’s your decision how and when you give your input and approval. We’ll work with you to customize the process so that it fits your schedule and preferred working style.
How Long Will it Take to Write My Book?
The duration of the ghostwriting process is partly up to you—the author! Depending on your schedule and desired level of involvement, your ghostwriter will develop material for you to review and approve on a weekly or biweekly basis. While every book is unique, on average, a 200-page manuscript will take between three and six months to develop. We can often rush these services for you if you need to meet a specific publishing deadline.
I'm Not a Writer, But I Have a Great Idea for a Movie/Novel/etc. Can You Help?
Give us a call! We’ll help you bring your story to life—for the screen, the page, or even the stage. We have the passion and experience writing stories, and we can pair you with a skilled ghostwriter, editor, or consultant to coax your concept out into a fully formed work of art that you’ll be proud to call your own. Don’t let lack of experience hold you back from actualizing a great idea!
Can You Help Me Write a Play?
Our team of writers is well versed in developing both stageplays and screenplays, and we would be delighted to collaborate with you. As with novelists, we work with playwrights in a flexible, customized way. We can develop material independently that you review and approve, or the process can involve in-depth interviews and one-on-one writing sessions—it’s all up to you!
I’ve Written a Book Before, But It Wasn’t Successful. What Can You Do to Help Me Succeed?
Writing is just like any other skill or art form; practice, feedback, and refinement are the means to improving your abilities. Every writer needs an editor, and even the most brilliant ideas can benefit from a collaborator or two. We can work with you on material that you’ve already created to give detailed, insightful feedback and suggestions on how to take your craft to the next level. We can also build off of the ideas that you’ve already generated and ghostwrite new material for you.
We know that the publishing industry can be daunting, so we offer consultation and comprehensive support for both traditional and self-publishing outlets. Once the writing and editing process is complete, we’ll help you make decisions regarding traditional and self-publishing options. We’ll craft a query letter or book proposal that you can use to promote your book to agents and publishing houses, and we can put you in contact with marketing services to get the word out about your book. We’ve assisted many first-time and experienced authors with both self-publishing and securing lucrative book deals through traditional publishing avenues.
Our services are perfectly suited for writers who are looking to improve their work. Our professional staff is ready to give you the tools, motivation, and reflection that you need to succeed.
