Book Ghostwriting Services

The Boldness Factor’s Book Ghostwriting Services exist to help mission-driven entrepreneurs, founders, and investors strategize and write their books to be ready to launch into the world!


it's time...

There are people who need to read the book you've been thinking about writing (like yesterday).

The thing is, you already have a full schedule…

You’re up to impactful work in this world, and likely don’t have time to sit down to learn how to write a book, structure and strategize, edit, and type it out yourself. 

Time is your most valuable asset, and you don’t have to sacrifice it in order to bring your book idea into this world.

This is where ghostwriting steps in, to serve people (like you) with brilliant ideas and powerful stories to share who may not want to spend the time writing the book…

By choosing to work with a ghostwriter, it allows your book to be brought to life in your voice, so that it can still impact those it was meant to reach and be a part of the legacy you want to leave.  

Your book will also be completed much quicker than if you tried to tackle this journey yourself. Remember, there are people who need to read your book and the message/knowledge that’s on your heart to share. 

Ghostwriting is a service that takes your ideas and stories and transforms them into books that fit your authentic vision, tone, and mission.  

It’s best for someone who has a very specific idea or concept for a book and are willing to provide the ghostwriter with the information and stories they need to be able to write the client’s book in the timeline set.

At the Boldness Factor, we only take on book ghostwriting projects that we are authentically passionate about. 

We will put the same love, care and energy into writing your book as if you wrote it yourself. 

Our clients often say, “What you wrote sounds even more like me than I do!”

That’s the goal. 

By working with a Boldness Factor ghostwriter, you can ensure your book idea will be taken as seriously and with as much care as if it was one of our own books. 

Every word will sound exactly like it’s coming from you, the true author. 

We have 1 more opening for October 2023, and are now booking for 2024. Must be a non-fiction, inspirational, self-help or thought leadership book. If interested in our ghostwriting services, be sure to apply today.


how it works

The Ghostwriting Process

After you apply here, we will have a chance to review your application and upon approval, we will get a chance to connect, learn about your vision, goals for your project, and ensure that we have a full understanding of what you want to achieve with your book. 

If we feel it fits our scope, passion, skills, and schedule, and you also feel like your ghostwriter is a good fit for you, then we will send you an official proposal. 

The proposal will include the project timeline, contract, NDA (to keep the ghostwriting of your book protected), and invoice. 


Once paid, your project will begin and the timeline kicks off, with most being completed within 4-10 months (estimated completion time will be given once we understand the scope of your project).

Here’s an overview of our step-by-step process:

Step #1: Establishing Vision & Expectations 

We will explore your complete vision and goals for this book in more depth, including overall impact, message, tone, and target audience. A timeline will also be set during this step so you know what to expect over the course of the next few months. 

(Approximate client time: 90 minutes) 

Step #2: Interviews

The Ghostwriter will interview you and gather ideas for the structure of your book and the stories within. They will also use this time to tune into your voice and tone to be able to mirror it as they write your book. The interview period will usually last 2-4 weeks with various meetings taking place during that time, depending on the client’s availability. 

(Approximate client time: 10-15 hours) 

Step #3: The Writing Process

After you approve the structure that the Ghostwriter provides based on the interviews, they will begin fully writing your book. This process can take 6-24 weeks, depending on the length of your manuscript. The ghostwriter will share excerpts of what they’re working on at different milestones set out in the timeline to receive feedback as they go. 

(Approximate client time: 5 hours) 

Step #4: The Rewrite & Refinement Process 

The ghostwriter will share the rough draft with you and then work with you on tweaks, including making sure that it sounds like your voice and adding any additional information that you would like to have included. After a second or third draft has been approved, the manuscript will then be polished with proofreading. Once completed, you will sign off on the project. 

(Approximate client time: 10 hours) 

Step #5: Choose Your Publishing Option 

We partner with a professional publishing company who will work with you to set a launch date and begin the process to turn your manuscript into a published book. This includes cover design, interior formatting, ISBNs, distribution uploading, and providing consultation for marketing your book to get it into the hands of your readers. This is an additional investment of $10,000 if you choose to partner with them to publish your book. 

At the end of this journey, you’ll be a published author with your book in your hands!
