Personalized Ghostwriting Process

The writing of your life’s story is one of the most personal and intimate undertakings in the literary world. No one knows your life better than you do, so transferring the richness of your lived experiences onto a printed page is no simple task. We know this is a complex endeavor, and we embrace the chance to get to know you and tell your story exactly as you want it to be told. Every life is important and holds significance, but no life is more important or significant than your own. We want to truly hear and understand your story so we can write it the right way—your way.

Building the relationship

Our ghostwriters have a genuine desire to listen to your story. We will communicate extensively with you via phone, Skype, in person, or e-mail to gain the best understanding of your personal story. We want to know your triumphs, defeats, lessons learned, roads taken (or not taken), and all of the fine details that have gone into crafting the text of your life. Through thoughtful and active listening, our ghostwriters will come to know you and your story intimately.

Understanding the market

Memoir and autobiography are incredibly popular genres in the publishing field today. It is crucial to have a working knowledge of what types of stories are finding success in the literary world and how those stories are being told. Our ghostwriters have this expertise because they are not only spectacular writers, they are also industry experts and voracious readers. We will write your book in a way that both reflects your preferences and connects with your target audience.

Crafting the story

One of the most difficult aspects of writing a memoir or autobiography is the ability to discern what experiences and events make for the strongest reading material. Not every detail of a person’s life ought to be included in their book. The best memoirs are good because of the power of the author’s experiences and because those experiences have been arranged in such a way that the reader is propelled by a narrative force. Our ghostwriters will help to weave the seemingly unrelated moments of your life into a cohesive and energetic story readers won’t want to put down.

Collaborative creativity

Because of the relationship you will build with your ghostwriter, you will be closely involved in the writing process. You will have the final say on every facet of your memoir’s composition. While your ghostwriter will provide the words for your life’s experiences, you are the author of your life and book. If you do not like it, neither do we.

How do I choose which aspects of my life to include in my memoir?

It all depends on the story you want to tell. Lucky for you, we have a team of talented ghostwriters to help you articulate and shape the narrative of your book. Your writer can help you to make choices about which details of your life to include or omit in order to convey your central theme effectively. Feel free to give us a call for a free consultation!

What’s the typical process for ghostwriting a memoir?

Our ghostwriting process for memoirs is flexible and customizable to your preferences. We can work with you as consultants and editors as you develop the content on your own, or we can ghostwrite the book for you, based on interviews and other information you provide us. We typically gather information via e mail and phone conversations, though the process may also include in-person interviews, site visits, and independent research as necessary.

A primary writer will be assigned to developing the draft material, which will be reviewed and proofread by additional editors to ensure the highest level of quality. The process usually involves developing a small amount of material at a time and submitting it to you regularly for review and approval.

While we understand that every client is unique and we are happy to adjust our ghostwriting services to suit your preferences, here is the typical ghostwriting process:

  1. Getting to know you and your publishing goals: The first step in the ghostwriting process is understanding the author—you! We’ll discuss your ghostwriting needs, personal preferences, schedule, and publishing goals in depth and help you decide what strategy would work best for you and your book.
  2. Planning: Our team will discuss your book concept with you in depth and begin developing a detailed outline of your book.
  3. Writing and Revisions: Our writing process involves developing 3-5 pages at a time, which will then be sent to you to review and provide feedback. We will then revise the segment per your preferences and resubmit it to you for review and another round of feedback. We will not continue with the writing process until you’re completely happy with each segment.
  4. Editing and Formatting: Once the ghostwriting is complete, we will have an editor (in addition to the ghostwriter) review the manuscript and ensure that it is free of grammatical error. At this time, we will also format the manuscript for your various publishing outlets (self-publishing, PDF, eBook, etc.).
  5. Publishing: At this stage, we will develop either your query letter or book proposal and provide you with a tailored list of reputable literary agents to contact. We also offer consultation and service packages to publish your book with various self-publishing platforms.

Can I work with my ghostwriter one-on-one?

Of course! You will have ample opportunities to interact with your ghostwriter by phone, Skype, and e-mail. In many cases, we can even send the ghostwriter to meet with you in person, or we can arrange for you to meet with them at their location. Not all of our ghostwriters are available to meet with clients in person, so please be sure to let us as soon as possible if in-person meetings with the ghostwriter are essential to your project.

What if it’s not working out with my assigned ghostwriter?

If you’re unhappy with the material you’ve received from your writer, you can simply give that feedback directly to the writer or our editor in chief and we will revise accordingly. Our skilled ghostwriters are able to shift their tone and style based on input from you to ensure that you connect with the writing. If after multiple revisions you are still unhappy with the writing, we can assign a new writer to the project who is a better match for you—this type of flexibility is one of the unique benefits of working with a professional firm.

Will you help me conduct research for a biography?

Yes, our ghostwriting packages can include research services. Whether your book requires basic Internet searches or rigorous scholarly research, we have writers on staff who can conduct effective research and synthesize it into your book.

What is the difference between a memoir and an autobiography? Which is better suited for me?

There are many similarities between memoirs and autobiographies—both are nonfiction, factual accounts based on the author’s life, written in the first person—but the biggest difference is the timeframe that is covered in each genre.

Simply put, an autobiography tells the entire story of the author’s life, while a memoir tells a specific story from parts of the author’s life. A memoir might address a particular period of time or phase of life that holds significance, or events that are all related in some way. An autobiography generally covers all aspects of the author’s life up to the time it is written, though some experiences may be given more or less emphasis to convey the desired theme or overarching message.

When choosing whether to write a memoir or an autobiography, consider whether you would like to write your life story, from the beginning to the present day, or whether you would like to focus in on a particular period of time.

What if I just want feedback and consultation on my book?

Our editing and consultation services are perfectly suited for writers who are looking to improve their work. We can give input at whatever level of detail you’d like—overarching feedback on the structure and concept of the book, critical review on the flow and transitions, or copyediting changes to the text itself. We can also address specific issues, as per your request, in our review of your work.
