That’s all it is. Ghostwriters offer a professional writing service. To have a professional write your project, no matter what it is, you contact the service and discuss your project and exactly what you need the writer to do. Some clients just need revisions to a work they’ve already done. Others just need editing. Some need additional material for an existing work. And some come in the door and need everything, from doing research to doing all the writing.

There’s no harm in talking and it’s free. We’ve been in business since 2002 and we’ve talked with thousands of prospective clients. We are happy to discuss your project and provide an estimate for the work.

Are we cheap ghostwriters? No. Hiring a cheap ghostwriter is a guarantee for headaches and missed deadlines. Simply put, a cheap writer needs to work quickly in order to make enough money to pay the bills. Your work will not be done on time and you’ll get excuse after excuse. When a writer moves as quickly as possible, big mistakes will be made.

(Page will open in a new tab or window). The relevant passage is: “And then you’re depending on a contractor, who will rush the job through so he can get another contract just as quick as he can. This is the way that this works.”

Annnd we’re back! Are we expensive ghostwriters? No. Our ghostwriting rates can be found here. Look around and you will find writers who are far more expensive. However, if you’ve got in mind a 300-page manuscript, our reasonable per-page rate will run into a lot of money because it’s a huge amount of work.

Then there’s artificial intelligence. You can prompt a chatbot to write a book or a screenplay or a speech. If your goal is to sell the work to a publisher or producer, the likely outcome is rejection. Why? Chatbots have no imagination, genuine creativity or story sense. They may be able to pass a bar exam but try to sneak an AI-written autobiography, novel or screenplay past cynical agents, publishers or studio readers and you’ll quickly discover AI’s limitations…and that you’ve wasted a lot of time. A chatbot can assist with research, but cynical, critical agents, publishers and studio script readers do have imagination, creativity and story sense. Your work will immediately be tossed onto the reject pile.

My goal is client satisfaction. To achieve that, I find excellent writers with a great client-service attitude and put them under contract. I review their work before I send them that contract. When you come to us, I’ll recommend a suitable writer. It will be a smooth process and you’ll be happy with the result.

As part of my client-satisfaction goal, you can reach us by phone and we always answer the phone, because everybody hates voicemail. If you don’t reach me, you’ll reach my assistant, who will take your information then contact me, and I’ll get right back to you.
