The Kevin Anderson
Ghostwriting Process


We will carefully customize our ghostwriting process to meet your specific needs and publishing goals. The process below describes a typical ghostwriting approach.

01

Discovery Calls

Before any commitments are made or contracts are signed, we take the time to get to know you, your book, and your publishing goals. We provide consultation about the publishing industry and discuss the optimal strategy for writing and publishing your book.

02

Questionnaire

We want to learn all we can about you, your book idea, your existing platform, and your target audience. Our detailed questionnaire will help you think through your book concept and provide us with important details.

03

Meet Your
Writing Team

Transforming a book idea into a publish-worthy manuscript is a team effort. Your book-planning, ghostwriting, and publishing strategy team will include:

Senior Editor
Our Senior Editors are former acquisitions editors from Big-5 publishers who understand the marketplace and have developed and published multiple New York Times bestsellers. They are the lead on the project and ensure the team is progressing effectively. They collaborate with the team to plan the book and provide ongoing editing and consultation throughout the writing process.

Executive Editor and Book Planner**
Our Executive Editors are former executive acquisitions editors from Big-5 publishers who have acquired and produced more than 500 traditionally published books and numerous New York Times and national bestsellers. Our Executive Editors are among the most experienced and successful figures within the entire publishing industry and have worked with notable authors such as Simon Sinek, Seth Godin, Salman Rushdie, Joe Biden, and Pope Frances, among many others. They provide detailed analysis on current market trends and help the team identify and develop the book’s positioning, core concepts, themes, target audience, general content, structure, and marketing strategy. Our Executive Editors are also the lead on developing the book proposal and/or pitch materials.

Writer/Ghostwriter
Our ghostwriters include #1 New York Times-bestselling authors and award-winning writers who will capture your voice and develop your vision into a powerful manuscript. The writing process includes ongoing interviews and multiple rounds of revisions to ensure your complete satisfaction.

Line Editor
Once the manuscript is complete and deemed satisfactory by you and the Senior Editor, the Line Editor will conducts a “cold read” of the draft, editing it for grammar and flow, as well as providing additional feedback and analysis.

04

Preliminary Research and Preparation

The writing team will review all available drafts, articles, notes, outlines, and other relevant materials in preparation for the Strategy Sessions.

05

Strategy Sessions—Planning and Outlining

Your writing team will meet with you in person or via videoconference to discuss your book idea, outline your manuscript, and develop your publishing and marketing strategy.

These are typically multi-day sessions at one of our offices (in NYC, LA, or Nashville), or we can fly the team to your location.

06

Publishing Strategy Discussion with Kevin Anderson*

Discuss your book with our Editor-in-Chief, Kevin Anderson, to determine the best publishing strategy to meet your goals.

07

Developing the Draft

Your writer will develop your manuscript one section at a time. With each draft, you’ll have the opportunity to make revisions and suggestions.

08

Ongoing Review

Throughout the writing process, your Senior Editor will review your manuscript and offer feedback and consultation.

09

Beta Reader Review and Revisions**

Your manuscript will be reviewed by 20+ impartial readers within your target demographic who will provide detailed feedback on your manuscript and how to improve it. The writing team will then revise accordingly. Learn more about our beta reading services.

10

Finalize the Draft

Your Senior Editor will meet with the team to ensure all parties are satisfied with the draft and make final adjustments.

11

Final Edit

An additional editor who has no knowledge of the project will perform a “cold read,” editing the text for grammar and providing a final round of analysis and consultation.

12

Final Review

The Senior Editor will discuss the project with you and provide his or her final approval of your manuscript. At this point, your manuscript is considered complete and ready for the publishing phase!

13

Targeting Agents and Publishers

The writing team will develop your pitch materials and help you with targeting agents and securing a publisher.

14

Publishing Navigation

Along with developing your publishing strategy, our service includes two years of publishing consultation to help you navigate the entire industry.

“Pairing an author with the right ghostwriter is inherently fraught with built-in challenges, and these challenges cause risk for both the publisher and the author. Kevin Anderson & Associates reduces those risks by providing a layer of expertise and oversight on the entire process of selecting, coordinating, and managing the contract-writing process. The end result is a better book because the right ghostwriter was chosen, the project was managed efficiently, and editorial quality was greatly increased.”

Jeff James, VP & Publisher, HarperCollins 

Authors include Rachel Hollis, Tilman Fertitta, and John C Maxwell

Having collaborated together on over a dozen manuscripts since 2015, including the original Five Nights at Freddy’s series, I can attest to their responsiveness, dedication to excellence, and commitment to keeping their clients happy. The ability to work with multiple gifted writers concurrently has been especially valuable to me.”
