Usually Busy Celebrities, Star sportpersons, Management Gurus, Motivational / Spiritual Gurus, Public Figures & Mass Leaders, Blog owners and others hire ghostwriters to write on their behalf. To know more, read our blog.

Do you maintain confidentiality?

Absolute confidentiality is maintained for all ghostwriting projects. Confidentiality of our client’s identity and project details is of paramount importance to us.

Who owns the copyright of the content developed / written?

You, the client, will own exclusive copyright of the manuscript after the agreed fees are completely paid; and you can do practically anything with your manuscript, without any bearing with us.

Do you charge royalty on sales of the books you write?

No. We shall have no right on the manuscript after the writing assignment has been completed and agreed project fees is completely paid up from your side. We take a one time payment (project fees). You have 100% right to any subsequent earnings and proceeds (Profits from publishing, sales, royalties etc.) generated from the manuscript.

Can you write on any subject?

We have a large team of educated, versatile and expert writers who individually specialize on various subjects; and as such they are able to cover almost all subjects. Be it Fiction or Non-Fiction, Biographical or Fantasy, Finance or Software, Wellness or Self-Help, Leadership Coaching or Employee Motivation, Management or Sales & Marketing – we have written and delivered several dozens of books on each subject.

Discuss your project with us, giving detailed project guidelines to know more.

How do I describe my requirement to you/the writer?

When we mutually agree upon working together on the assignment, you may send us an eMail with the following details:

(a) Your choice of service from our website, mentioning the Service Name (eg. “Children’s Book Co-Writing / Ghostwriting”)

(b) List of Topics or Table of Contents to be followed (if you have done the structure planning already), or vivid description of contents (if you want us to plan the book’s structure)

(c) Any helpful links you would like us to refer or study from.

(d) Attachments, if any (maybe photos, voice recordings, scanned pages, diagrams, rough sketches done by you, etc) – to make sure we understand your assignment better.

What if I do not like what you deliver?

From our 15-odd years of experience, we can assure you that our system of working makes these chances very slim. We spend considerable amount of time doing extensive research & homework before we start writing. By this time, you provide or approve the planned structure for the book.

After writing starts, we send you the work in installments, and you can let the writer know your views about it. So, even if the project is going off the track, it promptly comes back on track after your feedback. Work proceeds as you keep approving the installments delivered.

Do you take the project fees in advance?

Project fees are payable in advance for small projects. For projects costing above $1000, the agreed fees can be paid in 2 – 3 installments; the first installment being an advance payment.

How do I pay?

Please refer to our payment details page. You can pay via online Banking, Direct wire transfer to our Bank Account, or by using PayPal, your credit card, debit card, Western Union, or Xoom.

Do you also write content for porn sites?

No. We strictly avoid this as a company policy.

I don’t find thesis-writing among your writing services. Why don’t you write thesis and college essays?

We believe in a society which comprises of empowered human beings, who are respectable professionals in their own right. If we write the thesis on your behalf (which we can), the society will produce incomplete professionals; which is dangerous. So, please spare us from this.

How does the process work?

  • To start a fiction novel ghostwriting, we shall either need a story or idea. If there is no story ready with you, we can write the summary of the story (treatment) based on any inputs, ideas or suggestions you may provide.
  • All that we need from you to write/ghostwrite/co-write a book is an outline of the book, or a summary, or a table of contents, or a list of topics to be covered. You can simply mail it to us.
  • If you think you need to talk to us, or convey your thoughts about the book, that works fine too. You can record your speech by visiting vocaroo.com, record your voice and email the voice file to us.
  • We can expand any sort of input into an enjoyable book.
  • The style (for non-fiction) will be conversational, with stories and examples; the style which most bestsellers follow. If you have another style in mind you may mention that.
  • If you have any material to be used as reference in form of unfinished manuscripts, handwritten/typed materials, articles, brochures, audio files, or videos, and feel that we should study those to know the subject of your book better, you can send those to us; though that is not mandatory.
  • You need not be worried about the secrecy of your material, as there will anyways be a contract between you and us.
  • We may interview you in several sessions if we feel the project requires us to interview you. We recommend you install Skype for the interview sessions.

Can I pay in installments?

Yes. While payments for projects worth less than $1,000 are taken as 100% advance, if your project value is over $1,000, you can go for installments:

  1. 1/3 fees payable as advance to get your project started.
  2. 1/3 payable on 50% work delivery
  3. 1/3 payable on 95% work delivery.
  4. Full and final delivery is sent after complete payment is realised.

What are the payment options?

  • Bank wire transfer / online transfer
  • Western Union
  • Cheque or bank draft (for Indian clients only)
  • Remit 2 India / Times of Money
  • MoneyGram
  • Instantcashworldwide
  • Xoom

Any discounts?

YES! Sure.

  • Discounts are available on larger orders. If you see the fee structure, you will notice that the larger is your order, the lower is your fees (per page).
  • 10% early decision discount is available on the total fees, if you come to a decision & get your project started within 7 days from your first mail/inquiry.

Do you sign any Contract of Secrecy or Non Disclosure Agreement?

YES. There will be a standard Non Disclosure Agreement between you and us, which you can download by clicking here. You have to change the portions in red, print it, sign it, and send it to us (either by emailing me a scanned version, or by post). We shall send it back to you after signing on our side.

Do I get work updates?

You will receive installments of the work every week from the end of the 2nd week. You can go through the work and suggest changes if any.

What is the turnaround time?

A 100 page book or screenplay is likely to be ready in 30 – 35 days; and a 150 page book in 45 – 50 days. If you have suggestions for changes, that would drag the project a little longer.

Can we meet to discuss the project?

Sure we can. You are welcome to come down to Kolkata to meet us with a prior appointment. If the value of your project is above $3,000, the writer can travel to your location to meet you for a discussion. In case you want us to travel to your location for a meeting to discuss a project, you will be expected to bear the return airfare, accommodation in a standard hotel and conveyance within your city. Projects valued less than Rs 100,000 / $3,000 can be discussed via email and phone.
