This service is handled much like ghostwriting a book from a seed concept. The important differences are that the development focuses on the inner life of the main characters and on fleshing out the descriptive details required for the book format, which lacks the visual and auditory cues embedded in performance formats. Generally these fees are less than ghostwriting without an outline.

Ghostwriting is an all-inclusive service. In the first phase, we work together to develop the idea for the book. An outline is created and delivered for approval. Then your project is created.
The first draft is revised, line edited and copy edited before the final version is delivered. This professional writing service delivers top quality fiction and nonfiction manuscripts for juvenile, adult and YA books.
Articles, short stories and essays charge per page. Authors who have drafted portions of their manuscripts can utilize this service in conjunction with rewriting and/or editing or as a stand-alone option.

When authors are capable of writing quickly but don't have the time to create an outline, this professional writing service is the solution.
The process follows the first steps of full ghostwriting: the seed concept is developed utilizing your ideas, goals and message.
Fiction is described scene by scene, and includes notations on plot points, narrative arcs, plot turns, character development, setting, and the emotional resonance of each scene. Nonfiction is developed chapter by chapter with subsections.
Outlines for a manuscript of standard length (50,000 to 65,000 words) generally run 30 to 50 single-spaced pages depending on the category.
Fees vary depending on the target length of the final manuscript, the book's category, and other overarching elements. Generally the range is between $4,595 and $9,875. Books under 50,000 words use a discounted rate.
