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 free 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

Turning a book idea into a publication-ready manuscript takes more than just a single ghostwriter. For every project, we put together a team of writing experts who will see your project through from start to finish:

a. Senior Editor

Ensures that the team is staying on schedule, developing high-quality content, and meeting your expectations. They will collaborate with the team during the planning and outlining phase and provide ongoing editing and consultation throughout the writing process.

b. Writer/Ghostwriter

You’ll be paired with one of our highly talented ghostwriters. The ghostwriter will be responsible for developing the drafts and revising them per your feedback.

c. Final Editor

An external, impartial pair of eyes who will perform a final “cold read” of your manuscript upon its completion and provide critical analysis and feedback.

04

Preliminary Research and Preparation

We’ll review all available drafts, articles, notes, outlines, and other relevant materials in preparation for the Strategy Sessions.

05

Strategy Sessions—Planning and Outlining

Intensive in-person or virtual planning and strategy sessions to plan and outline your book. 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.

a. Agenda: We’ll send you a detailed agenda for the Strategy Sessions in advance.

b. Outline: By the end of the meetings, we will have a detailed outline (5-15 pages in length) of your book.

c. Scheduling: Your senior editor will give you a schedule and timeline for interviews and deliverables.

06

Publishing Strategy Discussion with Kevin Anderson*

Discuss your book with Kevin Anderson to determine the best publishing strategy to meet your goals.

07

Developing the Draft

Your writer will write 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 their feedback. These rounds of review occur in four phases:

I. Upon completion of the first chapter and introduction

II. Upon completion of one-third of your manuscript

III. Upon completion of two-thirds of your manuscript

IV. Upon completion of the entire draft. The writer will discuss substantive issues with you and implement your desired changes.

09

Beta Reader Review**

We utilize a beta reader service in which 20+ impartial readers within your target demographic review your manuscript and provide detailed feedback. We’ll make revisions based on data gathered from reviews.

10

Finalize the Draft

Your senior editor will meet with your team to ensure all parties are satisfied with the draft and approve it for final editing.

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

With the completion of the editing phase, your 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 is ready for the publishing phase.

13

Query Letter and Targeting Agents

We’ll provide you with a custom-written query letter and assist you with targeting agents. We can also develop a full book proposal upon request.

14

Publishing

Our service includes two years of publishing consultation to assist you in securing a publisher or advise you on self-publishing options.

“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

“It has been a pleasure working with Kevin Anderson and his team of talented writers and editors–I highly recommend them. 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.”
