The Ghostwriting Process
Every ghostwriting project is unique. Yet every ghostwriting project has a lot in common with the others. In general, this is how I work.
1. Initial Assessment
We start with where we are. I ask a lot of questions, some of which are:
I submit a proposal with a working definition of the project, its scope, responsibilities, timeline (including target dates for each project step) plus an estimate. I charge $90 per hour.
3. The Project
The author talks.
I listen, research and write.
Author and publisher go about their lives while I’m toiling away. I submit the drafts we’ve agreed on. I get their feedback, revise as needed, and—idea by idea, page by page—we build something extraordinary.
The author gets the credit (after all, whose ideas are these?) and I get the satisfaction of bringing these great thoughts into the world—and, of course, a paycheck.
That’s it. Shall we begin? Contact Joan.
