Ghostwriting

Have an idea for a script? Have a short story or novel you’ve written that you think would make a great movie? Contact me for an estimate.

Ghostwriting involves writing a screenplay from scratch or creating whole new sections to be added to an existing draft. The price varies depending on the length and complexity of the finished manuscript, which will really be dependent on your budget and wants. The screenplay will be written according to your specifications, and based on your notes or interviews via phone, email or Skype video messaging.

Payment is divided into installments and you get to approve all material before additional payments are due. A formal contract will be written up prior to the start of any work.

How does it work?

I’ll start by developing your concept or draft into a detailed outline. Before I start writing, I’ll go over my plan with you to make sure you understand exactly how the book will be structured and how the major elements will play out, at which point you can give your input, changes, comments, and voice concerns.

Once we’re in agreement with the plan of action, I’ll start writing. Each week you will be sent updates on the progress, any questions I have, or any suggested changes to the plot or characters if anything comes up during the write as sometimes opportunities or new elements may emerge that were not apparent during the outline phase.

Once a draft is complete, you will be able to review it and make any comments or suggestions. Once we are on the same page for the final outcome, I will complete a line edit and polish the work so that it is ready for submission or production.

Once you are a client, I am available by phone, email or Skype during regular business hours should you have questions or would like to discuss the process.

For all ghostwriting projects, the following are required:

  • Synopsis

The following make the process faster, and less expensive if you are able to provide:

  • Basic outline (overall and/or scene breakdown)
