Ghostwriting Service Details
Do you have a great book idea but have not had time to write it? Or are you halfway (or even further) along in your manuscript, but just cannot seem to finish?
Ghostwriting is the solution! Having a book professionally ghostwritten is one of the most popular secrets in the industry. Nearly every celebrity autobiography you have ever read was written by a ghostwriter. Even hugely successful authors like James Patterson collaborate with other authors to produce high-quality books so prolifically.
Ghostwriting is a great option for any writer, but is particularly effective for busy individuals who have a need for a book but simply lack the time to compose (or finish) the manuscript. A ghostwriter can be contracted to write the entire book, or get you through a particularly difficult part of the manuscript, or just to finish it up for you. And our professional ghostwriters are all adept at matching the "voice" and "tone" of material that is already written.
How does the process work?
You begin by placing a down payment for Ghostwriting Services through Outskirts Press. After that, we talk to you about your book and goals and then match you with the ghostwriter we believe is be best suited to your project.
Once that introduction is made, you will work personally and directly with your ghostwriter. Together, the two of you will determine if the relationship is a "match". Ghostwriting is an intimate exercise based upon talent and trust. You and your ghostwriter will both need to agree to move forward. If it doesn't seem like a good match, just let us know and we will introduce you to a different ghostwriter.
Fortunately, in most cases, the first match is usually a positive one. You will reach a written agreement directly with your ghostwriter about the project's cost, timeframe, and deliverable.
Please keep in mind that due to the time-intensive nature of writing a book, most ghostwriting projects are in the thousands of dollars. Your ghostwriter will provide you with his or her pricing estimates in advance of starting, but it will help if you realize up front that ghostwriting is an investment.
The process itself will be hammered out between you and your ghostwriter, and the two of you will work together until the project is done. Any additional fees you owe will be paid directly to your ghostwriter. Any agreements or contracts that are necessary will be presented to you by your ghostwriter, independently of Outskirts Press.
Writing your book is personal, so we don't get in the way of the ghostwriting process. But if questions or concerns arise, we'll be here to facilitate solutions.
With our exclusive ghostwriting services, writing a book is now just as easy as publishing one—just one more reason Outskirts Press is rated #1.

author of Avoiding Self Imposed Adversities
From the beginning, and throughout the process of publishing my first book, I felt that I was in the hands of a pro. Dana always took the time to answer my questions in detail and swiftly, and if she didn't have 100% confidence, she researched the question and got back to me. I was very pleased with her and I am also thankful that I was paired with her as an Author Rep.

Bridget, as well as the entire Outskirts Press team working with me, are exceptional. They held my hand through the entire process in addition to providing me with welcomed support and encouragement. I am looking forward to our next project together. I have recommended Outskirts Press to several freelance authors in my area. Thank you for making a potentially hectic journey so enjoyable and so satisfying.

author of Children: My Heritage - A Testimony
The one-on-one with Lisa was great. Especially the phone call picking out styles, font, cover template etc. She even got a vote on the color. I so wanted to have my daughter's painting as the art work on the cover and she gave me a way to do that. Her guidance helped turn my dream into a reality and sometimes it is still hard to believe until I look at my book. Thank you.

What a blockbuster learning experience I had being a part of self publishing with Outskirts Press! I felt empowered to the next challenge by both Allison and Dana. Their professional guidance and clear instructions when I needed help was crucial to feeling I could tackle the next step. I look forward to the experience with the marketing team. Thanks, Outskirts Press.
