By definition, a ghostwriter is a person who is hired to author books, manuscripts, screenplays, speeches, articles, songs, blog posts, stories, reports, white papers, or other texts that are officially credited to another person.
I am an accomplished non-fiction ghostwriter, writing up to four books a year under commission.
As my client, your book could be:
As your ghostwriter, you share your story with me and I turn it into a book. Although you pay me to write your book, you are the author and your name will appear on the front cover. It would be entirely up to you whether you disclose that your book was written ``with`` me when your book is published.
Ghoswriting a book is a collaborative effort, so you would need to be prepared for me to climb inside your head and live there for a while.
Writing a book takes a minimum of three to four months of focussed attention, and then the fine-tuning and editing and proof-reading still needs to be added to the mix.
Employing the services of a ghostwriter might mean you having to sell a kidney on the black market, so please take a look at the ``My Rates`` section of my web site before making contact with me. The entire process, from start to finish, can take in the region of between 200 and 320 hours for a 220-page book. This may be longer if the interviewing process needs to be extended, or if additional research needs to be performed.
Once you have decided that you are ready to go ahead and we have a written agreement and deposit in place, you will be assured of my undivided professional attention from start to finish.
