How to Hire a Ghostwriter

Lisa Tener - I can help you hire a ghostwriter
As a book writing coach and publishing consultant, I have worked with many busy professionals who have a story to tell – and many professional writers who have an amazing way with words. It’s tremendously satisfying for me to be able to help people bring their story to life. Let me help you find the best, high-quality ghostwriter for your project.
Every writer is not the perfect fit for every project. When you call me to talk about your project, I will refer you to one or a few ghostwriters whom I believe will be a good fit for you and your book. I know these writers. They produce quality work and they operate with high standards, so you can hire a ghostwriter with utmost confidence.

Testimonial for One of Our Ghostwriters

“It was a pleasure to work with Jim on my book. This was my first project and Jim made it so much easier. He has many great writing gifts, but his greatest ability is to listen and discern the message the author is trying to say and then get it down on paper. Jim said often, “It needs to be your voice coming through.” Jim made it flow seamlessly. [He] is a gifted writer and has the ability to focus on each project and make it the best. Jim gave me great ideas to launch and promote my book and make it successful.”

Books our writers wrote, co-wrote or edited have won the following awards:
