How much does it cost to hire a ghostwriter?

Like any skilled craft, ghostwriting costs money; and if you want to hire the best, you should expect to pay something for their services.

As a general rule, hiring me to write your book can cost anywhere from $15,000 on up. 

To find out exactly what your project will cost, just contact me. Tell me about your book, and I’ll try to respond with a quote. I may ask for more information, or I may need to see a copy of your manuscript before giving you a quote.

The quality/value triangle

There are three aspects to every job done by a professional: quality, speed of service, and price. These three aspects have been called the Value Triangle, the Quality Triangle, or the Unattainable Triangle. Whatever the name, the truth remains: you can have two of the triangle items but never all three. If you opt for a low price and quick service, then don’t expect quality. Or, if you want quality and fast service, be prepared to pay. This triangle is worth remembering, whether you are hiring a contractor to remodel your house or a ghostwriter to help you write your book.

You get what you pay for

My mother often said to me, “You get what you pay for.” And I think she was right. Again, the Quality Triangle reigns supreme: you can’t expect to pay a cut rate for quality service done cheaply and on time. It’s just not possible.
