Do you have a story to tell, but no time to sit down and write it? Maybe you've begun your manuscript, but it's turning into a bigger task than you imagined. A ghostwriter may be the answer!

   
  Ghostwriting Your Book
   
 

Ghostwriting involves an individual hiring a professional to write his/her book, articles, stories, or reports, which areGhost writing is a good option for busy people who want to author books. then officially credited to the hiring individual as the "author." It is not uncommon for celebrities, high-caliber executives, and political bigwigs to hire ghostwriters to draft, edit, or write their autobiographies, magazine or journal articles, blog posts, etc. However, many other authors also have reason to use ghostwriters.

Generally speaking, a ghostwriter does most of the writing themselves, following concepts, ideas, or storylines provided by the credited author. As such, it becomes a primary function of the ghostwriter to do extensive research about the author (in the case of an autobiography) or the specific subject of the book or article. The credited author has a vision for the book and its message, and it is up to the ghostwriter to help that vision come to fruition in the final draft of the work.

 Preserving the Original Author's Voice
 
   
  While ghostwriting is a viable option for those who just don't have the time or skill to write their own material, it can be expensive. Additionally, we feel it is imperative for the author to maintain his or her own voice. This means that the final book, article, or other written piece contains the words, thoughts, and tone of the individual credited with writing it.

Let's face it: if you hire us to write your stuff and offer little to no input, it's going to wind up sounding like we wrote it, because WE WROTE IT. Make sense? If you want your book to sound like YOU wrote it, you must contribute your words to it, in some form. The more you contribute, the easier our job is, which ultimately helps you contain your costs.
