How much should I pay a ghostwriter? Check our Pricing quota.

Payment varies based on the different writing processes. A ghostwriter needs to have a good understanding of the nature of your manuscript before they can make informed decisions on the overall costing of your book.

To this regard, let’s define some key vocabularies in the writing process before we focus on the pricing.


Book formatting involves working on elements such as paragraphing, indentation, spacing, pagination, styles, font type, page size and section breaks.

These elements help to package your content into a delightful piece to enhances readability.


There are three major stages of editing.

  1. Copy-editing
  2. Developmental editing
  3. Proofreading

Developmental editing

A concept in which the copy editor works closely with the author or client to transform an idea from scratch into a structurally sound book.

Their role is to make your book standout by giving it a logical sequence through adequate pacing and coherence. It is the most expensive kind of editing because this gives direction and clarity to a book.


Also known as line editing, copy-editing is the process of fine-tuning a book to eliminate typos and grammatical errors, correct punctuation’s, rewrite vague sentences, clear off clutters, and rewriting passive sentences into active voices.


This is the last, and most neglected part of editing.

If any error slips into a manuscript, the role of the proofreader is to catch them all, and make corrections before publication.

Proofreading a book at least four times before publication reduces typos by 95%.


It means to put a thought into a written or printed form.  A professional transcriber captures the intent of the speaker in spoken words and reproduces it into a text while eliminating clutters, repetitions and irrelevant sentences.


Publishing is to make a book available for public consumption through a third party agent, or a publishing house.

Although the word publishing is often used as a broad term in the book publishing industry, it basically means to give something a public status.
