- What happens if my Certified Ghostwriter cannot complete my project?
Our unique system allows us to readily deal with life’s unexpected turns. Should your ghostwriter become unavailable for any reason, your Team Leader will match you with a new, equally proficient replacement to complete the project with you.
- What if I am unhappy with my ghostwriter?
We have an extensive and growing team of Certified Ghostwriters. If we cannot resolve whatever issue has arisen—sometimes the chemistry just doesn’t work—we will arrange for a replacement more suited to your project and personality to step in.
- Who is responsible for additional materials such as illustrations, charts, and photographs?
You are. We will create your polished manuscript and incorporate any additional materials you provide. If necessary, we will assist you with MS Word-based objects such as charts, graphs, and tables. We can also refer you to graphic artists, photo-manipulation artists, and creative artists.
- Does my contract include a Table of Contents and an Index?
A Table of Contents is included in all manuscripts, but we do not provide indexing. We can refer you to professional indexers.
- Who does the final proofreading?
Our proofreading is handled by a fresh-eye team member to ensure the highest quality for your final draft. If you prefer to arrange for your own proofreader, we will incorporate their corrections at no extra charge within three months.
- How will I get my final draft?
We will deliver your final draft electronically as a doc, docx, or pdf file. If you opt for InDesign layout with your Final Edit, you will receive a PDF file. You may also request a hard copy; shipping charges may apply.
- How long will it take to complete my book?
Every project is unique, but nonfiction business, self-help, and how-to titles typically take 5 to 7 months. Memoirs usually require 10 to 12 months. Novels also tend to take 10 to 12 months. We tailor each target deadline to the scope of the work, your availability, and any other factors inherent to the individual project.
- How much do your services cost?
To help as many aspiring authors as possible, we do our best to work within your budget. Full-manuscript fees are quoted per project and are charged on convenient payment plans.
- Where do you get your ghostwriters?
Our team members are selected from the top Ghostwriting Professional Designation Program (GPDP) graduates.
