We at Ghostwriters Central are constantly amazed by the variety and uniqueness of its customers’ ideas. That’s why we work with ghostwriters capable of ghostwriting and editing books, screenplays, and speeches on any topic under the sun. Bring us fiction. Bring us nonfiction. Any topic, any genre, any tone, any theme — from the newest mainstream page-turner to the latest experimental journey. Our ghostwriters have the capacity to tap your vision and bring it to life. Call us…write to us…surprise us.
And we do get surprised. One client needed a 300-page business book written in two weeks. The writer they normally called upon for such tasks laughed when asked to do the project, so they gave it to us instead. We delivered the finished manuscript on time and on budget.
Our speeches have been delivered before the United Nations and before business groups. Our wedding toasts and marriage vows are the stuff of legend. Our words have thrilled university students and their families on graduation day.
Our screenplays have won prizes at film festivals and have been produced. Celebrities have called on us to write autobiographical movie scripts. We craft screenplays that are designed to knock readers’ socks off. We often are asked to perform script doctoring work.
We will bring our considerable expertise to bear on your project and charge you a reasonable price for the work.
