Work with our team of bestselling ghostwriters and editors to transform your ideas into a nonfiction book that finds its place on the shelf.

Not sure where to start? Call us! If you have a story outline or even just an idea you can’t get out of your head, we’re happy to discuss your concept and advise you on the best path forward.


How Do I Know What Details Are Important to Include or Exclude?

It all depends on the story you want to tell or concept you want to communicate. Lucky for you, we have a team of talented ghostwriters to help your articulate and shape the narrative for your book. Your writer can help you to make choices about what to include or omit in order to convey your central theme. Give us a call and tell us about your book, and our experienced team will help you decide the best strategy for developing it.

I’m Preparing for a Big 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 who have extensive experience with speech writing and presentations. In addition to writing content, we can develop presentation aids, such as PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi, and more. Our speech and presentation writers work similarly to our ghostwriters for books; the process can be tailored to your needs and usually includes phone and video calls and/or email communication. Give us a call or send us an email to find out how we can serve your needs.

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.

Are You Able to Develop a Textbook or Manual?

Yes! We have writers on staff with experience crafting educational materials for a wide range of subjects, from mathematics to science to language to general how-to manuals. We can pair you with a ghostwriter and/or editor who can match the style and tone that you’re looking for and ensure that the writing is targeted effectively to your intended audience.

What Happens if I’m Not Happy or Satisfied with the Final Product?

We design our ghostwriting process to ensure that we’re always meeting your expectations and that there are no last-minute surprises. You will be able to review and influence your manuscript as the ghostwriter completes it, and you will have every opportunity to provide feedback and request revisions. Our process involves writing a small amount of material, sending it to you for feedback, making revisions based on your input, and then returning the revised content to you for approval before moving on. This method guarantees that you’ll be happy with the final result since you will have approved every page of writing leading up to the final page. With that said, if for some reason you’re not happy with the final product, it just means that it’s not the final product! We’ll continue to work with you until you’re satisfied with the results.

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 Claim Full Credit as Author Even Though I Didn’t Write the Book?

Yes, absolutely. The book we write for you will always be 100% your book. No one will ever know that you had professional help with the writing process unless you choose to tell them.

How Much Do Ghostwriting Services Cost?

Every ghostwriting project is unique: our pricing is flexible, and it varies according to what you choose to include in your package. Our comprehensive ghostwriting packages typically include writing services for the manuscript, phone time with the ghostwriter, review by a senior editor, copy editing, an original query letter and synopsis, a personalized list of literary agents to query, and publishing consultation.

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 give input at whatever level of detail you’d like—overarching feedback on the structure and concept of the book, critical review on the flow and transitions, or copy edit the text itself. At your request, we can also address specific issues in our review of your work.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Should I choose a freelancer or a firm? Beware of working with freelancers. While some may be reputable or qualified, most are overbooked and will not make good on the promises they make to you. Also, if anything should go wrong (whether it’s an issue between you and the writer, or a health concern), you will be stuck in the awkward and frustrating position of reclaiming your expenditures and then finding a replacement writer. With a firm like ours, we replace the writer free of charge to ensure the process moves forward efficiently and effectively.
  6. What’s their reputation? Be sure the writer or firm has worked on books that have been published by major publishing houses. Ideally, the writing service you choose will have a robust staff of bestselling writers, experienced editors, and a wide range of connections to literary agents and publishers.

Whatever service you decide to use, be sure to protect yourself. Make certain that you are working with a reputable and experienced company.

Once the Ghostwriting Is Complete, Can 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 traditional, hybrid, and self-publishing outlets. 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!
