  • What is ghostwriting and why would I need a ghostwriter?
    A ghostwriter is a professional writer who confidentially writes books and other content for clients. You may need a ghostwriter if you have a book idea, but you have no time to write it or no clue how to create a plan of attack. With me as your ghostwriter, you trust me with your idea. I develop and implement a plan to provide you with a book in your voice with professional writing quality.
  • What is content/developmental editing and why would I need an editor?
    Content, or developmental, editing is for people who are further along in the writing process. Maybe you've developed a rough draft, but it just doesn't sound the way you envisioned it in your head. I review your content, make edits, and provide suggestions. Together, we collaborate to get your book to its highest quality.
  • What's the difference between content and copy editing?
    Check out this infographic. I created it to provide a detailed explanation about the difference between Content and Copy Editing.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    Yes, I do! I require a percentage of my fee up front. After that, you can make monthly payments or we can set up milestone payments to be made when specific writing goals are met.
  • What if I can't afford your services?
    I also offer hourly consults, where I read your written content and meet with you for an hour to offer suggestions and guidance. You do all of the writing with this option, but it still provides the opportunity for some valuable feedback. These sessions may be booked on an hourly basis at a cost of $150 per session.
  • Will you work for a percentage of the profits?
    I very rarely work for profit percentages. While I hope that every project will become an income generator for my client, the truth is that most books do not result in millions of dollars for the author. There are a lot of variables involved when marketing and selling your book. I simply do not have the ability to bet my income on all of those variables. You pay me during the writing process and keep all of your book profits for yourself.
  • What is the process and how long does it take?
    For ghostwriting, the process goes a bit like this. You come to me with your book idea, along with any notes or inspiration you can provide. I come up with an initial outline for the book and share it with you. We work together to tweak the outline. I then start writing one chapter at a time. We meet on a regular basis (by telephone or video conference) to review each chapter draft. Based on our discussion, I make changes and edit the chapter until you are satisfied with it. This happens for each chapter until they are all complete. We then review and edit the book as a whole to ensure that it all fits together and adequately communicates your voice. The ghostwriting process can take anywhere from 6 months to a year, depending on the length of the book, the amount of time you have available, and your budget. For content editing, you provide me with your book draft, and I read it over in its entirety. We then meet (by telephone or video conference) to discuss my impressions and create a working plan. Then, one chapter at a time, I make edits and discuss them with you. We move through each chapter until your book reads the way you intended. The content writing process can take anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months, depending on the length of the book, how much editing is needed, the amount of time you have available, and your budget. Rush projects are available at an additional cost.
  • Do you help with publishing?
    I do not personally offer publishing services, but I can provide you with referrals and resources for traditional publishing, as well as self-publishing. I can also assist you with the process of querying literary agents and writing publishing proposals. I make no guarantees that your finished work will be published.
