Why use a ghostwriter?

Whether you’re a CEO, celebrity, athlete, musician, or any other walk of life, you’re probably great at what you do. You wouldn’t want me to do it for you. In your life, you very likely delegate tasks to specialists. You’ll have an assistant or a publicist or an HR manager or an agent – because they can do those jobs better and more efficiently than you can, freeing you to do what you do best.

I’m you’re writer.

It’s what I do best. I can take small moments and explode them into significance. I can find the touchstones in your story that make them relatable to a broad audience. You’ve got the idea, I’ve got the words to make your idea sing.

Who gets the credit?

You do. I deliver a finished manuscript – whether for a speech, and op-ed, or a book, and it gets your name on it.  It becomes your work, and without your express permission I will never divulge your name unless I am required to by law.  If you’ve followed the news this year, you’ve very likely already read my writing – but I’ll never show you where. You’ll get the very same discretion.

How much do you charge?

Please see my rates page for details. Like most things, you get what you pay for. You can certainly go to a site like Fiverr and hire the lowest bidder – but ghostwriting is going to carry your name, forever. You need to ask yourself if you want low-quality, lowest-bidder writing to be the face you present to the world.  I wouldn’t.

That said, there are industry standard rates for professional ghost-writers with credits like mine, and I stick closely to them – and go beyond what is generally offered for those rates.  For example, with a book, I’ll also write a pitch for you. For an op-ed or speech, you’ll get media talking points to accompany.  I’ll work with your editors at the ultimate publishing venue to ensure you get the best, most marketable product in your voice.

Most ghostwriters, after delivering their writing, disappear into the ether. Not me.
