A ghostwriter by definition is someone who writes in the name of another. I do the work, you get the credit. Some people feel funny about this. The professionals I work with have a high degree of integrity and passion for what they do. The way I see it, I don't believe it's cheating to hire help so you can sound as good on paper as you do when speaking to clients.
Step one begins with you telling me everything you know so far about your project, article, or book. How long is it? What's the purpose? What's the best part? Once I get a feel for what you have in mind, I generate an outline for your approval. The outline is the blueprint for what we will build together.
It is the ghostwriter who does the writing, but generating the content is a highly personalized process that depends on your project, timeline, budget, and preferences. Are you an excellent speaker? Do you have model books that inspire you? Have you generated any written material? Can you send me voice recordings? Do you want me to do the research? The process can be as hands-on or as hands-off as you need it to be.
Price depends on time and time depends on word count. I charge a lower rate for interviewing time than I do for writing time, and I give discounts for large projects. I'm happy to give an estimate for your project.
That depends on the size of your project, my current workload, and how motivated you are. I can work fast and furious or we can take a disciplined approach one chapter at a time. Tell me what you need, I'll let you know what's realistic.
One of my Huffington Post articles is linked here and I do have a few freelance projects on my LinkedIn page. I'd also be happy to get you an approved clip or put you in touch with one of my ghostwriting clients. You can read or listen to my personal essays about living in the woods at CarolDunbar.com.
I once wrote a thesis paper with the intent to disprove the existence of ghosts. I was unable to do so.
