What kind of project will you create?
The Elements of Ghostwriting Projects
As your experienced ghostwriter, I will work with you to create an original fiction or nonfiction project. This will be within the industry-standard guidelines of 65,000-90,000 words. There will be a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) written into the contract.
I will write an original query letter and prepare the proposal for your literary project—fit for an agent’s eyes.
Organizing your story will require a full manuscript outline and chapter outlines from a series of interviews. With these tools, we may conduct narrative interviews, or you may choose to write a narrative for each chapter’s events.
Following industry standards, I will format your manuscript’s text within Microsoft Word.
I will edit the content of your project, focusing on crisp, concise language, narrative drive, and a disarming introduction. To prevent cancellation, I am also a sensitivity reader.
I will correct each chapter with your revisions.
Phone Interview Package:
We will start with an introductory call, and when we get into the meat of your story, I will record and transcribe our conversations.
Video Interview Package:
Tell me the long story—short! I will record and transcribe our conversations (on Zoom or FaceTime). Once we have your memoir project outlined, we will then continue with narrative interviews for individual chapters.
Copywriting (performed by an independent contractor):
I will hire a professional copywriter to polish your manuscript before publication.
Our Heirloom Collection starts at $41,000, split into four payments with a nonrefundable deposit of $4,000.
*Assisted self-publishing will add $4,000 to the Collection total.
