Q. When you ghostwrite my book, what involvement will be required on my part?

Q. What if I don’t like the work once it’s done?
A. Since your satisfaction is our stock in trade, we like to keep communication lines open, invite your input, and make every reasonable attempt to accommodate your timely, clearly typed change requests. We also send you the completed work in stages, especially at the beginning, to assure that we are “on the same page” as the work proceeds. Your timely written response is appreciated, and may be required before work can continue.
Once the project is completed, you will have an opportunity to review it. Should you find errors or problems you overlooked before, let us know. We will make every reasonable effort to resolve them to your satisfaction.
Q. Who provides the services?
A. In honor of the uniqueness of your project, we hand-pick a team of creative professionals with relevant experience and an eagerness to delve into your topic.
Our writers, researchers, editors, proofreaders, designers, and book promotion specialists come from a diverse variety of industries and backgrounds: sales and marketing, linguistics, journalism, social media management, psychology, customer relations, yoga, magazine publishing, NLP, educational publishing, recruiting, copywriting, business management, book publishing, teaching, manufacturing, investments, health, event planning, website development, merchant marine, theater, and self-improvement, among others.
They are chosen for their proven expertise and ability to produce a finished product you can be proud of, one that meets your business and marketing objectives and preserves your personal style and “voice.”
Q. How soon can I expect to receive my finished project?
A. The large number of seasoned pros in our pool ensures that your project gets off the ground quickly. How long it will take to complete depends on a number of factors, including (but not limited to): length, complexity, research required, and your timely response as the stages are completed.
Q. Will you act as literary agent for my book, and create a book proposal to send to publishers?
A. To get their books out as quickly as possible, most of our authors choose to publish with Book And Brand Publishing.
Due to enormous changes in the publishing industry over the last thirty years, we recommend you seek a literary agent and conventional publishing company only if your name is widely known and/or you have a track record of high book sales. In that event, we will be happy to create your book proposal and help you find the right agent for your book.
