How Does Ghost Writing and Comprehensive Editing Work?

Many books that are written today are actually ghostwritten. ABI editors and ghostwriters produce the manuscript based on either a raw manuscript, rough draft, notes, concepts, audio tapes, telephone conversations, face-to-face interviews, printed information or other materials provided by you.

Get a Major Publishing Contract! Get a Literary Agent!

After the ghostwriting process, the manuscript can either be sent out directly to agents and publishers, or it can be turned into a self-published book which can in turn be marketed directly to bookstores and sold online. ABI has sold many of its books to agents and publishers. One book was picked up by Prentice Hall in a bidding war when John Wiley didn't act fast enough. Another book was picked up by St. Martin's Press, and the author was given an additional two-book publishing contract.

How Much Does It Cost?

Ghostwriting a book generally runs between $8,000 to $45,000—depending upon the complexity and word count. A complete line-editing job runs about half that. The job is broken down into payments which are linked to the completion of the chapters in the manuscript. For those clients who wish to engage writers who are New York Times best-selling authors and Pulitzer Prize winners, prices range from $50,000 and up. And we accept MasterCard and Visa.


How Long Does It Take?

Ghostwriting or comprehensive editing ONLY takes about 60 to 120 days—depending on your availability.
