The Ghostwriting Process

  • 1. First, you will be sent a questionnaire that will identify your goals and expectations as well as key elements that will be needed for market analysis and proposals. This Is very important if you want to submit to a publisher, or expect to sell books
  • 2. There will then be an introductory call with both Bryan Dodge and David Williams to discuss the questionnaire and the process, what will be needed from you, what to expect from us, timeline etc. Upon conclusion of that meeting we will create a proposal. The proposal will then be discussed and upon acceptance and receipt of the signed contract and down payment, we will move to the next step.
  • 3. Strategy Session – is a detailed interview with both Bryan and David to lay down a table of contents, chapters and a basic outline of each chapter. This can be done virtually or in-person. We will also discuss the Forward and the Intro creation, what those are, and what will be needed from you to write them. We will need any and all notes, interview, rough drafts, or anything else you may have before this interview. If you don’t have anything, that’s fine. We’ll discuss content creation and that process.
  • 4. Draft Development – will be written chapter by chapter and only after your approval will the next chapter be started. There will a review upon completion of every third of the manuscript. The manuscript will be formatted correctly to be published upon completion.
  • 5. Editing – will be done once the client has approved of the manuscript in its entirety. A publisher may require a third party review as well.
  • 6. Book Proposal – will be created based on the Marketing Analysis Report that has already been created by this point.
  • 7. Publishing Options – We will talk to our literary agent about submitting the manuscript to publishers. We will also discuss with you self-publishing options.
