How the Ghostwriting Gig Works

It’s an amazing story and it’s yours to tell. Unfortunately, you’re just not sure how to go about telling it. Not a problem. I’m here to help.

I know that choosing the right ghostwriting service can seem daunting: How do you find the perfect fit? Can you be sure the ghostwriter understands your vision? Will he or she effectively deliver?

Fair questions.

Why You Need a Ghostwriting Service

  • You know what you want to write, but you don’t know how to write it.
  • You know what you want to write but just don’t have the time.
  • There is an incredible idea in there but you need help in flushing out the details.
  • You’ve started a story and have an outline but are stuck. (I can unstick you.)
  • You’ve written the story but aren’t happy with the style.
  • You’re not confident in your skill level to get the right words on paper.
  • You need a ghostwriter to add the creativity, the flair, your story is lacking.

Some say that before you begin your search, you need to define exactly what it is you want. Only then can you determine exactly what you need. However, with a general idea of what you’re looking for, a good ghostwriter can help you figure it all out.

That’s where I come in.

What I’ll Do for You

Writing is what I do; it’s my trade. But more importantly, it’s my passion. I will listen to your ideas and ask the right questions. I will help you define your vision, and then I will create that vision for you. I’ll do the grunt work; you’ll get the glory.

Most importantly, I will care about your project just as much as you do. I understand that your project, be it fiction, non-fiction- a traditional book, an e-book, an academic essay, an important letter to a long-lost pal or something altogether different, is important to you, which makes it important to me.

“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is … the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”
—Mark Twain

I will help you find the right word.

I have the experience you need. With a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in English education- and now as a professional writer – I know writing. I understand the nuances of the written word and how to use those words precisely to craft meaning.

With hundreds of projects under my belt, I understand the process of ghostwriting. I know how to take your ideas and turn them into the narrative you’re striving to tell.

The Relationship

Entering into a ghostwriter/client relationship is just like entering into any contracted service. In this case, however, it’s a collaboration. It’s the ghostwriter’s job to deliver what you want. It’s your job to communicate as clearly as you can your needs.

I like to begin with a phone call. Speaking directly with a client allows me to ask the right questions:

  • What is your vision for the project?
  • How will it look and what is the end goal?
  • What style, tone, voice do you imagine?
  • What will be the word or page count?
  • Do you have a draft, an outline or notes?
  • Is there a need for research?
  • What is your deadline?

Even if writing is beyond your comfort level and/or realm of experience, you can relax. I’ve worked from stalled-out drafts, from outlines and from bulleted notes on scraps of paper. Without a doubt, I can take whatever you have and make it amazing.

You’ve Found the Perfect Fit: Now What?

Once you’ve settled on the perfect ghostwriter (me) to bring your ideas to life, there are standard moves you can expect. Any ghostwriter worth his or her salt will.

  • Help you determine the scope of your project
  • Gather your information and work out the structure
  • Guide you through any reorganization that may be needed
  • Communicate regularly
  • Edit and revise as needed
  • Be your advisor, your confidante and your cheerleader
  • Do any additional research
  • Complete the writing and the editing to your satisfaction
  • Guide you through the world of publishing

As your chosen writer, I will be here to answer your questions. I’ll help you feel comfortable and safe. A good ghostwriter becomes a trusted friend, one who would never discuss your private affairs with others.

I will also gladly sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). I abide by the ethics of my craft and will deliver the manuscript and the ownership of it to you.

Ghostwriters understand that this is your story. They do their best to fulfill your vision, but they cannot get inside your head. Adjustments along the way are part of the process. Whether you ask for changes in direction, tone, organization or something else that isn’t quite right, a good ghostwriter will make those changes quickly, easily and without complaint. It is with your specific communication and guidance that good ghostwriters know they are fulfilling the responsibilities you’ve hired them to fulfill. They are flexible and responsive.

A big part of success in any endeavor is being well-informed. A huge part of success for me as a writer is to know that I’ve delivered exactly what my clients want. I would love to work with you to make your writing vision a reality, so give me a call and let’s chat.
