Ghost Writing

Writing your Stories, Ideas & Teachings for you .

Manuscript Assessment

We start out by first evaluating your manuscript to help you to see the best way to enhance the message of the book. We will review the book, and we will give you our opinion on the submitted manuscript. We will then discuss with you on what we think are the strengths and weaknesses of your message and story and then recommend rewrite if necessary. We will also help you if necessary to embellish and put flesh in the copy where necessary. The possibilities of identifying the audience and possible marketing ideas are discussed at this time.


Manuscript Assessment

Basic Editing

Every manuscript will go through the first read and this will be done to give you suggestions and ideas for improvement. On your approval and on resubmitting the changes if any, (additional Ghost writing charges will apply if we have to do the writing changes for you) the manuscript will either be sent for a basic editing or advanced editing. The editor will normally check the manuscript for errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation. The editor will also address syntax and use of word choices and then make recommendations for improving the overall readability of the work. On your approval, a final professional edit will go for proof reading to promote a perfect editorial work.

Advanced Editing

The level of editing is determined by the way you write and how readable you manuscript is. The greater the help the more the editor has to do. Advanced editing will include adding structural support to the message, author writing mentorship, creative writing ideas and everything that could be done professional including using editing software that will make the book an enjoyable book to read. It is for those who have a solid idea, but are not sure how to organize the material. The editor will organize your manuscript by moving, cutting and shaping at the chapter and paragraph levels, in addition to providing feedback throughout your entire manuscript. Fictional books will be reviewed for character development, plot, dialogue, and flow of the story. Nonfiction books will be reviewed for theme, writing style and pace of the book.

Cover Design

The basic cover design is included in all printing packages. It includes at most two sample design options for you to pick one. But in most cases we work with you to produce just one that will suit your vision and requirements. Advanced and intricate cover designs which will require a dedicated graphic design specialist to come work with you and help you create your ideal cover and back cover will incur fees per hour. The cover design of a book has a lot to do with the sales and the way it is received by the public. Although the proverb says “never judge a book by its cover”; has never worked in the brick and mortar bookshelves or online. A good design will always stick out amongst thousands of other books. Investing in a captivating cover design is wise and it will go a long way to achieve success in the process of your book publishing. The cover of your book is the first thing interested readers will notice when they pick up your book or view it online; then they will view the book title next. You would want your book cover to really pop out; our designers are committed to creating a cover to complement your written work.


Cover Illustration

$250-$300


Full Book Illustrations

Using your ideas and input as well as design guidelines, our illustrator will produce images and graphics to fully illustrate your children’s books, comics, magazines, or whatever media you need. Prices will vary depending on the type of book and work required; the amount of pages and the type of graphic required will determine the design artist’s fee.

Ghost Writing

We have positioned ourselves to support Ministers of God especially pastors who never seem to have the time to write, but have a message that will bless the body of Christ. We help them by Ghost writing from their recorded sermons and notes. We also do ghost writing for those with a story to tell, but lack the skills of an writer; the process of writing is a long tedious one and it goes from writing almost completed messages to expanding on ideas, completing incomplete works, detailing your life for an autobiography or simply adding aspects to a nearly complete book to doing research work and biblical notations.

The basic fee for ghost writing starts at $1,500 and the fee increases according to the volume of the work.
