Book Authority Fee Sheet
Jeffrey’s pricing fees are approximate, and the actual fee will depend on your book’s details and specifications, including research, interviews and level of research and subject matter.
There are numerous aspects that influence a book ghost writer's fee, such as the complexity of the book, the time it takes to write, the amount of words, interview time, and level of research among other factors.
Unlike memoirs or novels with over 90,000 words, most business books are usually shorter and simpler. For this reason, I have provided a fee range for each topic.
