Our Process

Unveiling the Path to Ghostwriting Success

Walking through the process

Our ghostwriting process comprises five phases, meticulously designed to set you up for success, ensure a seamless writing experience, prepare your manuscript for publishing, and execute a robust marketing strategy.

** Please note that the specific details and timelines of each phase may vary, as our ghostwriting process is tailored to accommodate the unique requirements, goals, and preferences of each project and individual client.

Ghostwriting Process Tree

The following illustrates the process of turning your dreams into reality.

Phase 1 - Setting up for Success

We begin by establishing a solid foundation for the project. This includes finalizing the ghostwriting contract details and collaboratively reviewing a proposed calendar for the creation and publication of your book or project. This phase sets the stage for a smooth and well-coordinated process.

Phase 2 - Preparation for Writing

To capture your unique voice through our comprehensive and effective interviewing process, we begin with in-depth intake interviews and meetings, immersing ourselves in learning all about YOU and your distinctive style. Our carefully crafted intake questions revolve around creating a project that is true to your vision. Collaboratively, we outline the book or project, identifying key takeaways to ensure a cohesive and impactful manuscript.

Phase 3 - Writing of the Book or Project

During this phase, our ghostwriters take the lead in crafting the chapters. Each chapter undergoes thorough review and editing by you and our content editor, ensuring that the content, voice, style, and other details align with your vision. Each chapter or project undergoes a meticulous editing process, receiving a minimum of three rounds of edits to ensure its content, structure, and style are refined to perfection. We will work closely together providing valuable feedback on each chapter or project as it evolves, resulting in a polished and compelling manuscript.

Phase 4 - Manuscript Preparation for Publishing

We take meticulous care in preparing your manuscript for publishing. A copy editor conducts a comprehensive review, ensuring the highest standards of quality. We collaborate with you to select an appealing book cover, create formats for both ebook and print versions, and ensure all elements are aligned for a professional and reader-friendly publication. If we are working together on a project that is not a book, we ensure your final copy is ready for immediate use by incorporating your logos, branding elements, and visual assets seamlessly, creating a cohesive and professional representation of your brand.

Phase 5 - Publishing and Marketing

As an author, if you are writing a book, our support extends beyond the completion of your manuscript. In collaboration with a publisher, we develop a strategic marketing calendar aimed at achieving the coveted status of being a #1 Best Seller in multiple categories. Launch day marks the culmination of our joint efforts, and we continue to provide marketing support as desired and needed, ensuring your book reaches its intended audience effectively.
With our comprehensive process, we guide you through each phase of the ghostwriting journey, ensuring a seamless transition from an idea to a successfully published book.

Our meticulous approach combines careful collaboration, thorough research, and a deep understanding of your unique needs.

Let us be your trusted partners, working together to bring your vision to life and propel your book to new heights.”
