You’ve got a great idea for a book but haven’t got the time—or even the desire—to actually sit down and turn those ideas into a manuscript.
Perhaps you’re still too busy living your life to pause long enough to write your memoir. But you want to leave a legacy.
Or perhaps you want to extend your brand and increase your reach, but you’ve still got a business to run.
No time? No problem. At Elite Authors, we’ve assembled a team that makes creating your book no hassle at all. Let us help you tell your story.
First we interview you to learn more about you and your story. Then we partner you with the right Elite writer for your voice, style, and personality—and your vision for your book. You and your writing partner put your heads together, ferreting out the details, making sure you both are clear about everything that should be in your book. Then we get to work.
We specialize in nonfiction, business books, memoirs, self-help books, and how-to guides—whatever you’re dreaming about writing, we can help make it a reality.
Absolutely—ghostwriting is legal. There’s no gray area here—it’s your ideas, your knowledge, your name, your book. We take zero credit and zero royalties. It’s estimated by some publishing industry experts that up to half of all published books are in fact ghostwritten, some even by big-name authors.
How much a ghostwriter costs varies greatly, depending on multiple factors, from the ghostwriter’s experience to the length of your project. Our fee is based on the immense amount of work we put into your book. We conduct multiple interviews with you to learn about your voice and your project; we send you a carefully drafted author memo that clearly outlines your book. Incorporating your feedback along the way, we provide you with chapter outlines, a table of contents, and finally the book itself—a moment that’s celebrated by everyone on your team with two hips and a hooray.
It’s possible some ghostwriters charge by the word, but that could be a red flag. After all, what’s to stop an unscrupulous ghostwriter from using more words than necessary just to upcharge you? We charge a project-based fee so you know exactly what to expect before we start. There are no hidden fees.
You’ve already found a ghostwriter! Elite Authors offers ghostwriting services that will make it easy to finally publish that book you’ve been meaning to write for years. We’re constantly inspired by the stories people have to tell, and we’re ready to get to work on yours.
You do! The book a professional ghostwriter produces belongs to the person whose knowledge, ideas, creativity, and stories have been committed to paper. We’re the channel for your book, not the owners of it. Your book is all yours.
A ghostwritten book (or speech or essay) is one where the words were committed to paper by a writer hired to shape and organize someone else’s thoughts, ideas, concepts, and stories into a polished product. It’s your name that appears on the cover as author because in the end, it’s your book—we’re just the conduit.
Once we’ve presented you with a finished draft of your book, you can go in a number of different directions. You might want to make some changes or additions, in which case it would be worth considering a round or two of editing to ensure that the final book is free from error. You might want to shop it around to various traditional publishing houses, in which case we could help you draft a query letter. Or you might decide to look into independent publishing, and if so, Elite Authors offers a full suite of services to get your book shelf-ready.
