Burning Soul Collective's Ghostwriting services is designed for busy entrepreneurs, executives, and consultants who have a book idea, but they don't have the time, energy, or desire to fully flesh out the book and type it themselves.
That's 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, but by choosing a ghostwriter, it allows the 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 that you want to leave.
Ghostwriting is a service that takes the ideas and stories of the client and transforms them into books that fit the client's authentic vision, tone, and vision. It is best for clients who have 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 Burning Soul Collective, our writers (who are all authors) only take on ghostwriting projects that we are passionate about, so that the same care, heart, and soul can be poured into your book as it would have if writing it yourself. It's important that we reflect the authenticity of who you are and vision for this book through the writing, and we take great pride in being able to achieve that.
By working with a Burning Soul Collective 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 that we were writing, and that every word will sound exactly like it's coming from you, the true author.
As of January 31, Burning Soul Collective only has two more openings for 2024. The project must be a memoir, inspirational, self help, or thought leadership book.

The Process for Ghostwriting:
Once we have a consultation call with you, we will learn about your vision and goals for your project, ensuring 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 included 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). The following steps will ensue:
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, dependent on the client availability. (Approximate client time: 10-15 hours)
Step #3: The Writing Process. After you approve the structure that the the Ghostwriter provides based on the interviews, he or she will begin fully writing your book. This process can take 6-24 weeks, dependent 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: If you choose to pursue the publishing option, we will 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 the readers.
At the end of this journey, you'll be a published author with your book in your hands.
Ghostwriting is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling writing experiences because it empowers someone else to share their story by removing the barriers of storytelling while fusing an intimate bond between the client and ghostwriter.

**As a ghostwriting client, everything is kept confidential, including the fact that you used a ghostwriter for your manuscript. You do have the option to choose co-authoring, as Gina Defa did for "The Parakeet Drawing," allowing others to know you worked with a writer to bring your book to life. It is up to each individual author to make that choice and does not impact the work we do. By opting for co-authoring instead of only ghostwriting, it just allows us to showcase you in our testimonials. :)**
“Lauren Eckhardt and Burning Soul Press made the journey of writing my memoir possible. She is a wonderful coach and encourager. The hundreds of hours we’ve spent crying and laughing together over the past year will always be some of my favorite memories.”
