We Can Ghostwrite and Publish Your Book

Our editor and publisher, Stephen Hawley Martin, is also our ghostwriter. Google his full  name if you want to learn about him and about some of the books he has written.


Stephen has authored five novels under his own name and half a dozen books on business topics. Including his self help and metaphysical titles, he has authored more that three dozen books. In addition, he has ghostwritten a number of memoirs for individuals as well as self help and business books. An accomplished ghostwriter, editor and author, he is the only three-time winner of the Writer's Digest Book Award. In addition, he as won First Prize for Visionary Fiction from Independent Publisher magazine and First Prize for Nonfiction from USA Book News.


The typical ghostwriting process goes something like this. An hour-long session will be scheduled each week between Stephen and the book’s author. The meeting will take place either by telephone or Zoom. During the first session, the author will give Stephen a broad overview of the book he or she wants written. From that Stephen will develop an outline, breaking the book into chapters if possible. Going forward, Stephen and the author will work through the outline. The author talks, Stephen asks questions, and the meeting is recorded. Stephen writes drafts of chapters that are send to the author. The author edits them, or alternatively, Stephen and the author talk about the chapter at the next session, and Stephen edits the chapter based on the author’s input. Usually within three to six months, there is a finished manuscript that will be published by The Oaklea Press. Alternatively, the author can take the manuscript to another punisher if he or she wishes.


How much does ghostwriting a book cost?


The amount varies, depending on the amount of work Stephen estimates will be required. The amount for ghostwriting a book typically falls  between $15,000 and $45,000.
