When I started ghostwriting for client “authors,” ghostwriter fees were far above the budget of most would-be book authors. Hiring a “ghost” was something reserved to celebrities and business moguls, with fees ranging between $150,000.00 and $300,000. That was many years ago . . . and the rates have increased. Many ghostwriters still overcharge for their services.
When you hire me to work for you, you are hiring a well educated, broadly experienced, award-winning professional, for a period of months in most cases, so it is an undertaking for which you need to plan and budget appropriately.
I have written scores of books for discerning clients—many of whom are just like you. Many, however, are unlike you, and their books often require more, or less time than yours; or more, or less effort than yours. For this reason, GhostWriter offers a few book writing packages, in an effort to keep costs within reasonable boundaries.
Or, just watch one or two of the videos in the margin.
The exact cost for assisting you with your book writing project will vary, depending mainly on the amount of time and effort that will go into your book. Below are some of my writing packages. Decide which one fits your needs best, or call me to discuss your needs.
For those who want to publicize their book, and a related business or organization, at the bottom you’ll find our Publicity Package.

BIOGRAPHY & INFORMATIONAL PACKAGE
I interview you for a few days, and collect your materials, then return to my office to begin the writing of your book. When the first draft of your manuscript is ready, I send it to you for review and feedback. I look for your guidance, and make any changes that result from your feedback. When the manuscript is ready to publish, I prepare the cover artwork, and format your book for publication on Amazon.com. This is our most popular package, and most of the books we write fall within this category.
The average book requires approximately 12 weeks for me to write it, and get it to publication.
Package price: starts at $24,500

Writing for celebrity clients often requires a great deal of research and attention to detail, because of public scrutiny, and the potential for liability.

Or, if you prefer to have me publish your book, we will have it published on Amazon.com, in paperback and hard bound formats.
