Our editorial and graphics services have won awards like the “International Latino Book awards” for the “DREAMers Nightmare, THE US WAR ON IMMIGRANT LATINX CHILDREN,” by Arturo Jimenez, edited and illustrated by Cheri Lucking and Peter Lucking, CEOs of Content Branding Solutions.

Editors and contributing  authors often research and help clients with referencing and researching citations in any subject.  They will usually draw the line at completing the whole body of work without substantive input from the client; after all, it is not the ghostwriter’s book.  The client's voice is paramount to the success of the message you wish to portray and the benefit you as the author will reap.

The voice of the author, the client, needs to speak through the words; therefore, it is important to us as contributing authors, editors, and all ghostwriters that the original thoughts of our clients shine through the words and the structure to provide value, and a benefit to their clients.

Why Would You Use a Contributing Author or Ghostwriter for Your Copywriting?

  • Time: You have great ideas but no time to flush them out.
  • To Establish Yourself as an Expert: You need to keep up your website content and blogs to build brand awareness and present content.
  • To Build Your Brand: Freelancers, small businesses, and start-ups need to grow their brand voice, visual identity, and equity.
  • Write Blogs, Articles, and White Papers: Most of our clients think this is easy until they try.  Weekly or bi-weekly sounds easy.  It is not!  Leve it to the experts for guaranteed results.
  • Create a Branded Thought Leadership Marketing Piece - A presentation or quarterly report.
  • Writing is not Your Strongest Skill: Your profession is your sharpest skill!   Hire a professional to take your book idea to the finish line while focusing on what you do best.
  • YOU HAVE THE BOOK or Marketing Piece Fleshed out but No Time to Research and Complete It.

Costs by the Numbers  for Contributing Author and Ghostwriters

The following costs are ballpark numbers for the use of a contributing author, content writer, or ghostwriter:

  • An SEO blog containing 350 - 500 words starts at $350 or $1.00 a word.
  • Research and fact-checking are typically paid by the hour. Usually recommended that there is a maximum upset. Look to pay $175 - $275 for formatting, indexing, and referencing, etc.
  • A thought leadership white paper $1,000 to $2,500.
  • A detailed professional branded report starts at $2500 - $5,000.

As the complexity and number of ghostwriting words rise in addition to the number of images, your overall project costs will increase.

What Will it Cost to Publish A Ghost-Written Book or eBook Successfully from Start To Finish?

Branding Services ▪ Content Writing ▪ Book Launch Page ▪ Editors and Editorial Services ▪ Amazon Author page

We have been through the publishing process many times as the client, the author, the contributing author, the ghostwriter, content writer, publisher, publicist, website designer, marketer, etc.  However, the one thing that nobody ever shared was the total project needs and costs.  So, here is a baseline for the “full-service double-O-seven package” for content writing or ghost-writing, editing, book design, printing, full-color, hardcover, to Kindle.

  1. Manuscript Development

Manuscript Development is dependent on the number of words and complexity.  Budget $1.00 per word or $24,000 – $75,000.  Including researching, fact-checking, contributing authors, ghost-writing, and full editorial services.

  1. Book Publishing on Kindle

One week + up to 10 days for Amazon approval, including book covers for book and Kindle, Amazon author page, editorials, Amazon search engine research, placement, etc., $2,000-$5,000.  This fee would include a paperback book printed on demand.

  1. Hardcover Books Printing Costs

Hardcover books printing costs can vary from a simple black and white novel run of 10,000 books to an expensive hardcover full-cover book at $100,000.  If you print in China, the print costs will be less, but you will need to ship and import your books.  If you are in a rush, this process will not be for you.

  1. Book Distribution

You must get these books to market; this will require getting into an appropriate catalog, costing up to 50% and 65% off the cover price, but more often around 35-40%.  This percentage is a big dent in your pocket.   Therefore, we recommend Amazon Kindle with its print-on-demand for books, which is a lot more sustainable.

You and your project are exceptional.  Call us for an obligation-free assessment of your needs.  When publishing a book utilizing the services of a contributing author, ghostwriter, editor, graphics designer, or others, the cost starts at around $24,000. It increases from there to a half-million to burn.

Not everyone has a half-million to burn.  The most we have been paid to date for a project from start to NYT Bestseller Campaign was just under a half-million, $497,000 + expenses.  We coordinated all aspects of the successful launch.  Note we were not the publicist, distributor, etc.  That project cost number is rare, and the clients with this type of cash are still rarer.

We Guarantee results to meet your mission, vision, values, goals, and budget. As a result, your project will get the same quality of services, and we guarantee that you will be delighted with the results based on your individual goals and budget.

You can see why a traditional publisher takes on a lot of risk and cost with an author whose sole business is books.

We specialize in content and media that further thought leader's marketing efforts to gain a competitive advantage in a turbulent marketplace.

The Secret "double-O-seven," Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA)

The NDA for Ghost-writers ▪ Ghost-writing ▪ Contributing Authors ▪ Content Writers ▪ Freelance Copywriters ▪ Copywriting ▪ Editorial services

Ghostwriters are anonymous shadows, just like James Bond 007.  They do not take credit.  You can ask who they work for, and the guaranteed answer is simple, “we are under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).”

Your NDA agreements can be short.  Lawyers write reams of legal jargon; we make it simple, “Confidentiality of all client information provided, within the limits of the law.”  However, if you want to work with us, we believe in integrity and expect in return from our clients.  After all, it is your project; your success is our success.

Ghostwriters are the  "double-O-seven" of the Copywriting industry
Credited as Editors and Illustrators.


Please do not run around telling everyone you have a ghostwriter, say we are researching for you, contributing authors, or editing, otherwise what is the point of an NDA?  You have already spilled the beans!  Think, and be like James Bond and do a "double-O-seven" with a smile.
