Ghostwriting Services for Non-fiction Books

Everyone has a story, but not everyone has the time or patience to write it.

Writing a book, be it a memoir or how-to manual, is a painstaking process. It requires meticulous planning, thoughtful interview skills, deft organization, and the obvious—the ability to write well. My ghostwriting services help you tell your story.

In 2017, I committed to ghostwriting my first book. It is a private personal memoir written for a prominent individual from Texas. The extraordinary project was lengthy, taking most of time in 2018 and the start of 2019 to complete. I’ve had a passion for ghostwriting ever since.

If you long to see your personal story or how-to manual come to fruition, I’d love to hear from you so we can determine if we are a good fit for a collaboration. I mention collaborating because at its core, ghostwriting is a partnership. To get the ball rolling, please fill out the form on my Contact page. I’ll send you some helpful information.

Donna is meticulous with pinpointing the voice then nails it consistently. She is a true collaborator, and her fearless and fun attitude make her a fantastic creative partner.”

Top 3 Reasons for Hiring a Ghostwriter:

  1. Your book gets written with little interruption to your schedule and responsibilities

  3. It’s easier for an outside writer to remain objective and help organize the contents of your book

Ghostwriting Packages

The book you’ve always dreamed of writing, made easy.

Recognizing that everyone has a different budget, I’ve created three value-based Ghostwriting Packages. The Bronze Package allows me to help my clients flesh out their ideas for organizing and writing a book—with a quick turnaround and the necessary foundation to begin the writing process. The Silver Package includes more time, communication and writing, and delivers a finished manuscript for a modest 85-page book. The Gold Package builds on everything included in the other packages, but is comprehensive, detailed, and delivers the manuscript for a 160-page book. Payments are made in 2 – 3 installments, depending on the package, and are tied to deliverables.

 

BRONZE Fundamentals Package – Limited-time offer: $2,000

This fundamentals package was created as a budget-friendly way to begin the process of writing your book. You and I will work closely so I can gather information about your book idea and begin to flesh out the tone, content, structure and estimated page count of the book. Whether you decide to pursue writing the book now or at a later date—with me or using another writer—this package includes the necessary elements you will need to launch the process.

 

SILVER Ghostwriting Package

My Silver Package is a value package designed for clients who know they want to write a book, have thought about the content of their book and feel ready to begin the ghostwriting collaboration. The same fundamental elements need to take place to plan for the length and flow of your book’s content, but there are more hours allotted for interviews, communications, research and writing. The job concludes with your receipt of a completed ghostwritten manuscript for an 85-page book.

 

GOLD Ghostwriting Package

The Gold ghostwriting package is geared towards a more comprehensive how-to manual or detailed personal memoir. The client should expect to provide me with pertinent facts, background information, and a list of up to six interviewees as well as their contact information. The job concludes with your receipt of a completed ghostwritten manuscript for a 160-page book.

 

For more detailed information on each package, please fill out my  Contact Form  and be sure to mention the package that interests you. Some books will not be a good fit for any of these packages, and price will be negotiated and adjusted to fit the project accordingly.
