Are you on a mission in life? If you're a U.S. Congressman, you probably are. Writing a book on your life's purpose or mission is not only a source of viable income once published, but more importantly furthers your mission by educating and raising public awareness. I can help you turn your thoughts and feelings into the right words that elevate personal experience to universal connotation. A published book can make a difference in a beneficial and meaningful way to society. Maybe you've lived your life according to your own set of values and not necessarily those of "The Joneses. Time spent in writing a book about your goal, your mission, your purpose, is worthwhile and meaningful time. Society today could use new heroes and heroines with whom to relate. Most likely, you don't recognize yourself as such, yet you listen to a higher purpose that involves not just yourself but that which has implications for humanity and the world around you. Don't underestimate your impact.
Why hire me as your ghostwriter as opposed to another writer? The following story answers this question.
"A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: 'I am blind, please help.'
There were only a few coins in the hat. A woman was passing by. She took a few coins from her purse and dropped them into the hat. She then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. She put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.
Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the woman who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized her footsteps and asked, 'Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?'
The woman said, 'I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.' I wrote 'Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it.' "
Experience as both a writer and a ghostwriter for others spans the last 20 years. Committing to a client to ghostwrite and edit a book manuscript that is to be submitted for publication is a full-time job. It's an Author-Ghostwriter partnership. You supply the details of your Mission or Life Purpose through various methods and formats such as notes, draft, journal, diaries, tapes, etc, then every effort is made to construct the details into a New York Times Best Seller. I work closely with a premier N.Y. City Literary Agency responsible for soliciting manuscripts to the top 5 N.Y. City Publishing Houses: Simon and Schuster, Penguin Random House, MacMillan Publishers, Harper Collins and Hachette Book Group. None of these publishing companies accept unsolicited manuscripts.
I do not claim any royalties or percentage of ownership. You are the sole author. You have 100% ownership and royalty rights on the copyrighted manuscript I write for you. If a movie is made from a published manuscript, which has happened with some of my manuscripts after being published as a book, you are still in control of all royalties and ownership. My flat monthly fee is $1800 a month (non-negotiable) during the time spent writing and preparing a manuscript for publication. The $1800 retainer (first month's fee) is due at time of signing Ghostwriter-Author Contract; subsequent monthly payments of $1800 each are due on the date of signing each month until manuscript is completed and ready to be sent to the Literary Agency. Every effort is made to adhere to Deadlines agreed upon in contract in order to minimize cost. A typical 250 pg formatted manuscript required by publishing companies requires 4 months to write, edit and format; that is a full-time 8-10 hour a day job (minimum) as a ghostwriter. That's $7200 for ghostwriting and formatting an average book manuscript of 250 pages. The submission package to the N.Y. Literary Agency I work with is compiled as per the agent's requirements and takes the final fourth month to complete.
If you have any doubt as to my fee being a reasonable price for a professional credentialed (PhD; published) ghostwriter to charge, just Google the term "ghostwriter" and you will see that ghostwriter fees start at $25,000 and the typical charge for a 200-250 page manuscript is between $30,000 to $60,000 and they want 50% up front. Many ghostwriters work for an agency who employs hundreds of ghostwriters. You're paying the agency a fee as well as the ghostwriter, whom you most likely will never meet.
You supply your notes, journal writing, diaries, tapes, etc. as a basis on which the manuscript is to be created. I base the manuscript on your notes, preparing the manuscript, as in strategy, plot, theme, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution, required dialogue and development of characters. These are all elements in creative non-fiction as well as fiction. You don't have to worry about how to implement any of these elements of a manuscript. That's my job. It's a craft, an art form that takes years to perfect. You don't just sit down and write willy nilly and hope for the best outcome.
Experience as a professional writer evolved out of 20+ years of teaching creative writing and literature in universities in the U.S. and Europe as a Creative Writing Professor. Published in three countries- Italy, Switzerland and the U.S. As a former Writer in Residence for the United Nations based in Rome, Italy I have had the privilege of ghostwriting manuscripts for entrepreneurs, politicians, international diplomats and Foreign Heads of State, as well as family and friends, scientists, medical doctors, physicists, astronauts, geeks, teachers, caregivers...each and every one has made an invaluable contribution in his or her own way to humanity through his or her personal story. If you are serious about your Mission or Cause & interested in having a professional ghostwriter help you write a book on the subject, email me. It would be a pleasure to meet and discuss your idea for a book that will be constructed on a level of universal interest and appeal. It's my privilege - my Mission - to turn your thoughts and feelings into inspiration for others.
I reside on Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands off Washington State. All my clients are invited here to Orcas Island for a face-to-face meeting whenever possible. I work remotely with clients across the U.S. and throughout Europe and Asia via phone, email, etc. In addition, once I start on a Manuscript Draft, you are in receipt of an updated manuscript every Friday afternoon to review on an ongoing basis until complete.
Specialties: Memoirs, Missions and Causes, Autobiographies and Biographies in the form of Creative Non-Fiction.
Subjects included in former published writing projects : Crisper, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Mars (Earth Relocation), Animal Rights as Family Members, Protection and Preservation of Earth; Nature Conservation at the End of Time We Have; Space Exploration for New ReLocation; New Standards for Holistic Childhood Education; Quantum Physics Made Applicable to Daily Life; Exploration of Different Dimensions of Life; Interrelation of All Life; Implications of Music to Science, Multicultural Travel and Experiences, Pioneering Medical Advancements, Individual Life Experiences Others Can Relate To and Benefit From, Personal Experiences Helping in Developing Countries...these were all personal life experiences of individuals written in such a way as to give the personal, universal significance.
