Process & Timeline

✓ Do you have a story that deserves to be shared with the world?

✓ Do you want to inspire others and leave a legacy?

✓ Do you want to establish yourself as a thought leader in your industry by sharing your wisdom with readers?

No matter what your book goals are, I’m here to help you realize them.

I ghostwrite non-fiction books in the memoir, self-help, and business genres. These book projects typically take between six and ten months to complete, largely dependent on the client’s availability for interviews and revisions.

The final deliverable is a fully drafted and revised manuscript that’s ready for publication.

Ghostwriter Process

I tailor my approach to every client’s individual needs, goals, and schedule, but my process typically works like this:

  • 1

    During our first meeting, we discuss the high-level ideas for your book, your goals for the project, your target audience, and the voice/tone you’d like used in the manuscript.

  • 2

    In our strategy session(s), we dig deeper into what your book will be about with a goal to create a detailed outline for your manuscript. In the Strategy phase, we also determine a timeline for your book’s completion.

  • 3

    The bulk of our time together will be spent here. During the Content phase, we have a series of interview calls to gather the content for your manuscript, using your outline to guide us. I recommend clients devote a two-hour block of time per week for these interviews if their schedule allows.

    During this phase, I simultaneously draft chapters and submit them to you based on our agreed-upon timeline.

  • 4

    In the Revisions phase, you provide your feedback and I edit your manuscript accordingly until it’s polished to perfection.

  • 5

    Once we’ve fully revised the manuscript to your liking, we consider it complete. Your manuscript is ready for publication!

    While I do not offer publication services, I can provide publication guidance for either the traditional or self-publishing routes. I also offer an add-on service for book proposal development for clients looking to publish traditionally.

Hear from my clients…

When I came to Erica, I had way too many topics I wanted to cover, and no way to sort them into an outline, let alone write them into a book. When I left, I had a smart, organized book that impressed everyone who read it. I like to tell her she’s a miracle-worker because she is.”

Putting together an entire book might seem daunting, but trust me—it’s actually fun! All you have to do is bring the ideas, I do the heavy lifting, and viola!
