Freelance Ghostwriters We Recommend

If you hire a ghostwriter, you will pay that individual directly. We are only referring you to them. We do not hire them for you.

NOTE ABOUT UNKNOWN GHOSTWRITERS OFFERING THEIR SERVICES ONLINE: There is no licensing agency for ghostwriters and there are many online now who are NOT professional ghostwriters. Anyone with a computer and an Internet connection can put up a website and pretend to have experience in a particular field.

A WARNING ABOUT LETTING YOUR PUBLISHER GHOSTWRITE YOUR BOOK: Many print on demand publishers and publishing service providers now claim ownership of their author’s files (what they call the “production files”) even though authors paid THEM to ghostwrite and/or edit their books. We call this a “forced marriage” because it makes it almost impossible for an author to move to another publisher someday, even if they are unhappy with their current publisher. We strongly recommend NOT paying a publisher to edit your manuscript. Freelance ghostwriters don’t try to claim ownership of an author’s files.
