It’s a well-known cliché that everyone has a book in them. But just because you have a book in you, it doesn’t mean you have the time (or inclination) to write it yourself.
If you have a story to tell but don’t know how to go about getting it into words, then working with a ghostwriter could help. Although there are no guarantees in the world of publishing, working with an experienced ghostwriter or editor (or both) will increase the chances of your manuscript being picked up by agents and publishers. Or if you’re looking to self publish, bringing on an external writer to polish your work can boost the chances of success in a very competitive market.
George is professional ghostwriter based in the UK. He is efficient, and discreet, and has experience working with clients to tell their stories – starting with the germ of an idea and finishing with an original and well-written book ready to hit the shelves. His projects are often handled under NDA, and he understands that everyone will have their own idea of what the ideal author-ghostwriter relationship should be. If you have already started writing your life story, George can work with you to add some editorial polish and turn your draft into a completed and publication-ready manuscript. Or if you don’t know where to begin writing your book, he can work with you to develop and write your story from nothing. It’s fine if you want more of an editor to supervise the writing process, and it’s fine if you want a ghostwriter you can leave to write the whole thing. Of course, it’s also fine if you’re looking for an arrangement somewhere in between.
Stylistically, George is very adaptable and is capable of working with you to produce a project which feels truly yours – and which is told in your voice. His experience lies mostly in narrative non-fiction, although he is also open to working collaboratively on fiction as well. George works under a contract which usually ensures his clients have the full rights to be recognised as the author of the work. However, there is also the potential to work as co-authors or to introduce a royalty-sharing agreement as part of the contract. These elements are up to you.
Ghostwriters are skilled professionals, and George’s pricing is competitive but fair. Prices will vary depending on the length and nature of the book you want to write – as will the amount of time the project will take to complete. Payment is usually delivered in instalments, in accordance with the book’s progress. The world of ghostwriting can sometimes seem opaque, and it is natural to have questions about the process. If there is anything you want to ask George, or if you would like a quote for your project, please get in touch.
Prospective clients are also advised to shop around to find a writer they feel they could have a good working relationship with, since full-length projects can take a long time to come to fruition. If you believe George could be the person to bring your book to life, then he would love to work with you.
