If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our decades of ghostwriting, it’s that every ghostwriting project is different. Our book clients come to us for just about every reason you can think of: They want to check “write a book” off of their bucket list. They want to tell their story. They want to tell their family’s story. They want to share their knowledge of blockchain, or electric cars, or Aboriginal genetics. They want to share their grandmother’s recipes.
That’s why we don’t offer a “standard” ghostwriting service. Whether we work with you for 8 hours or 800, your experience with us will always be yours, never cookie-cutter, never duplicated, and never turnkey.
Shhh… Ghostwriting Is The Secret To Writing Your Book, Your Way
At The Writers For Hire, we ghostwrite nonfiction books for anyone who has a real-life story to tell. Throughout our decades as a professional ghostwriting company, we’ve learned that no two clients (authors)—and no two projects—are alike.
Our clients’ reasons for contacting a professional ghostwriter for books are as varied as their professions and personalities.
Some have always meant to write a book that shares their experiences or expertise but haven’t been able to make the time. Some want to tell their own or their family’s story as a gift for present and future generations of family members; others want a business ghostwriter to help write a book about the history of the company or organization they have dedicated their life to.
And some have other reasons.
No matter the topic or the motivation, we love a good ghostwriting challenge and have worked with some very interesting people on some inspiring projects.
In fact, we’ve made No. 1 on the Wall Street Journal’s Best-Seller list for Nonfiction!

Q&A About Our Book Ghostwriting Services
No, ghostwriting is a many-centuries-old tradition—probably nearly as old as the origins of written language. Such renowned ancient works as Homer’s “The Iliad” and “The Odyssey” were likely ghostwritten.
Of course. Your ghostwriter is simply helping you say what you want to say in a clear, engaging way. The ideas are 100% yours – all a ghostwriter does is help you get it on the page.
