Ghostwriting

Have a great idea that you just can’t get down on paper? Don’t have the time or the discipline? Hire a ghost! With ghostwriting, you tell your story and have a professional writer craft it for you, and you take all of the credit.

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 if you have any questions. 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.
