General Considerations


The price for a ghost writing project depends on the number of manuscript pages, single-spaced, and twelve-font size that is without graphics, pictures, or images. As a gauge, consider a 140-page single spaced, twelve-font manuscript without graphics, pictures, or images to become about a 300-page, 5 inch X 8 inch soft-cover novel. The number of words, graphics, pictures, images, spacing, font size, amount of white space, and other considerations further contribute to the length of the final document. Work is performed on a service basis - no deferred payments or royalties. One-third of the estimated total price of the work is paid to the ghost writer at the time of the contract agreement; one-third of the estimated total price of the work is paid at the estimated half-way point; the remaining dollars owed is paid once the work is finished.




Ghost writing books, memoirs, and screenplays without graphics, pictures, or images, single-space depends on the amoun of research and complexity of the project. Therefore, the entire project must be fully explored before a price can be determined.
