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 your book.
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 calls 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 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, and so 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 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 copyediting changes to the text itself. We can also address specific issues, as per your request, 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:
- 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 that 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’s not going to 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 company with experience.
Once the Ghostwriting Is Complete, Can You Help with Publishing and Marketing?
We’ve assisted many first-time and experienced authors with self-publishing their book and securing lucrative book deals through traditional publishing avenues. We’ll craft a query letter or book proposal that you can use to promote your book to agents and publishing houses. 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.
