COMMENTS FOR: “Should I hire a ghostwriter…or do the writing myself?” A lot of people want to write a book simply to leave their mark somewhere. To the people out there, who have enough commitment to make it through even the roughest draft, I say – go for it! Do the best job you can […]

How Much Should I Charge For Ghostwriting?

As a loyal subscriber, I’ve used your expertise in so many different capacities over the years, and for that I’m extremely grateful. To that point, I’m in need again. I have a client who would like me to ghostwrite a non-fiction book and I have no idea what to charge. My research indicates that fees range from $5,000 to $100,000 (depending on factors such as research, page count, expertise, etc.) but I wondered if there were any fee structures that you could point me to and/or if you had any advice/direction from your own experience. Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

Ghostwriting: Know Your Clients By Rich Mintzer

The concept of ghostwriting makes perfect sense. It allows for those who have expertise in an area, but are not the most proficient writers, to express themselves in well honed, well written books and articles. It also allows for writers to make money behind the strengths of well known names, since celebrities and experts can sell books based on their name recognition and, or, expertise in a field.

The Art Of Ghostwriting By Rich Mintzer (or so I say)

Writing is one of the few professions where you can actually pay someone to do the work for you. In fact, the position even has a name – ghostwriter. Sure, others have tried to use the same strategy, such as Mili Vanilli and numerous politicians, but it is not quite the same thing. Ghostwriting is actually a means by which an expert in a field or a well-known personality tells his or her story through the crafted words of a professional writer. The difference, however, from a collaboration, is that for marketing reasons, and/or egotistical reasons, the writer simply remains invisible.
