Ghostwriter, freelance writer, book editor, coach,  speaker and life explorer


A ghostwriter writes your book or article, but you get all the credit. A ghostwriter takes your creative ideas and turns them into a magazine article, a self-help book, a book on how to, a speech, a brochure, with dynamite sales copy, a tips booklet - the possibilities are endless.

You've got the idea!

Now you need to turn it into great writing. And that's what I'll do for you; take your idea and turn it into writing that exceeds the reader's expectations.

Remember, I do the work, but you get all the credit. You own all the rights. It's an honorable way to get your best ideas into written form for your audience.

Here's what one satisfied customer said: 

"Over a five week period of time I would meet with Anne once a week. Each week she would give us her writing based on the conversation we had the previous week. Each week I marveled at her result. The only thing I could think of saying was, "did you write that or did I? That was exactly what I wanted to say"; and she said it better than I could have said it. THANK YOU!!!"

Ghostwriting is also a tricky relationship.

That is, as your ghost, I have to write in your voice. There's a fair amount of back-and-forth and although I'm very good at ghosting, I don't take on every project.

What you need before you hire a ghostwriter:

You need a have a clear vision of your book, including:

  • Why you're writing it
  • What you expect to get from it
  • Who your audience is

You may not have answers to everything, but you must be clear on these three before you hire a ghost.

What happens when you hire a ghostwriter

You and the ghost agree on:

  • the description of the project
  • how much you will pay the ghost and how
  • how you'll get the information to the ghost
  • a rough schedule

Then the writing work begins. Depending on the exact arrangements, there may be face-to-face meetings or telephone conversations or emails exchanged as the ghostwriting project progresses. Each project is highly individual.

What Does Ghostwriting Cost?

Asking how much ghostwriting costs is sort of like asking "how long is a piece of string." The price varies, but generally starts at about $10,000 and can go as high as $50,000.

Will You Take A Percentage Instead?

Never instead, but once and a while I'll reduce the cost for a percentage of the project provided:

  • You have a great marketing plan
  • Or you already have a contract with a trade publisher
  • And I think the idea has huge potential.

But feel free to ask.
