Important note: My fee is inclusive of all work to be performed. I do NOT participate in any "back end" payments, royalties, or other arrangements. My fee is paid for in increments over the life of the work. Each payment is made in advance and the total fee must be paid before the manuscript is completed. I do NOT work on speculation of future payments of any kind.
In many cases, the cost of ghostwriting a book can be tax deductible. (Check with your own accountant or CPA.)

Fees for a business book start at $45,000 and up.
