Mark Sullivan, director of Manhattan Literary, was interviewed on 9 June 2104 by The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi. The subject of their talk: ghostwriting and the memoirs of famous politicians. Farhi was investigating Hillary Clinton’s new book, Hard Choices, and her treatment of the ghostwriter.
Cost varies because books vary a great deal.
Our fees depends on these factors: the length of a text, number of months agreed on for completion, the reputation of the professional ghostwriter, etc. More than any other factor, however, having a written draft can help reduce ghostwriting fees. The draft need not be professional, merely informative for content. Without this preliminary work, more research and conversation between the writer and the client become necessary.
Both situations are equally common in this business: some clients have a draft, some do not.
Another consideration is the flow of information. The more authoritative a client is at informing us, the less research is needed, and we can spend the time writing. This expedites a project and lowers cost.
Book projects on the shorter side, tailored to new markets like the Kindle Singles imprint and others (30,000/120 pages and under) start at a cost of $15,000.
Here is our guarantee: We will work with you and try to accommodate your budget for our ghostwriter services.
