Do you have a story to tell but need a trustworthy source to professionally write, design and publish your work? I commend you on wanting to share your uniquely original story. It will make a wonderful legacy to share with family and friends. Presenting your message professionally is my mission…My name is R’chelle Cyrus-Hughes. I am a published author, writer and blogger of Christian ministry, inspirational and poetry works. From concept to copy, I will work with you step by step to share your story.Never heard of a Ghostwriter? Celebrities, executives, political leaders and people in the news often hire Ghostwriters to draft and/or edit their autobiographies, memoirs, magazine articles and other written material. In the music genre, Ghostwriters are often used to write songs, lyrics and instrumental pieces. Screenplay authors also use Ghostwriters to edit and/or rewrite their scripts.
This is how it works: I will conduct personal interviews with you to receive your information. I will form an outline used to write, design and publish your book – based solely on your information. You provide the content and I will provide everything else you need to produce your legacy – your very own unique masterpiece.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT YOUR OPTIONS:
I offer two (2) options:
~ The 6″ x 9″ Professional Trade Paperback Book
~ The 8.5″ x 11″ Premium Leather Book (perfect for gift giving!)
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE 6″x9″ PROFESSIONAL TRADE PAPERBACK BOOK OPTION:
If you are writing a book and want to make it available for distribution throughout the market place, the 6″ x 9″ Professional Trade Paperback Book is for you…
Most bookstores, online retailers and libraries find books through their relationships with large book distributors. If your book is not listed with these distributors, some retailers may not be able to buy your book, even if a customer specifically requests your title.
Through the exclusive book distributors that we have access to, we will make your title available for order from these retailers and libraries. However, know that this does not guarantee that your book will be ordered. You will still need to market your book. Marketing services are not included in our Ghostwriting Service.
The 6″ x 9″ Professional Trade Paperback Book comes in three sizes: Short Story, Novella and Novel. The difference in cost and length between the Short Story, Novella, and Novel is the word count.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT CHOOSING A BOOK SIZE:
THE SHORT STORY (15,000 – 30,000 Word Work)
Traditionally, Short Stories are meant to be read in a single sitting. They are usually published in magazines and collected then published in anthologies. A Short Story is one of the most common forms of writing. This form is most often used to describe a single event, a single episode, or a tale concerning one particular character. A Short Story does not usually involve major twists, conflicts, involvement of various sub-plots and multiple characters. A Short Story is basically a fictional prose written in a narrative style that can either be in first person or third, whichever the author chooses.
THE NOVELLA (30,001 – 40,000 Word Work)
A Novella is sometimes called a long Short Story or a short Novel and can involve multiple sub-plots, twists and characters. The length of the Novella typically means you will find fewer conflicts than you will in a Novel. There will also be more nuances and complexities than what you would find in a Short Story. Novellas usually focus on one character’s personal and emotional development rather than larger scale issues. Novellas are often written with a satirical, moral or educational purpose in mind. Unlike Novels, Novellas are usually not divided into chapters and, like Short Stories, they are often meant to be read in one sitting.
THE NOVEL (40,001 – 300,000 Word Work)
The Novel is one of the more common works of fiction. A Novel often involves multiple major characters, sub-plots, conflicts, points of view and twists. Due to its lengthiness, a Novel is meant to be read over a period of days. Its plot moves forward through many characters, actions, thoughts, time periods and situations. Often the story in a Novel deviates and is affected by the involvement of different sub-stories and sub-plots. These nuances are what draws most people to a Novel.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE 8.5″ x 11″ PREMIUM LEATHER BOOK:

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MY RATES:
According to the Writers Market, ghostwriting rates (without royalty or credit) range from an hourly rate of $70 an hour – with a $5,000 per project low, a $36,000 per project average and a $100,000 per project high – to a per word rate of 50 cents per word on the low end, $1.65 per word on average and $3 per word on the high end.
My fee is very simple: I charge $1.00 per word with half the fee paid up front and the balance paid ten (10) days prior to completion of your book. For example, if you choose the Short Story option with 15,000 words, your project would cost $15,000. You would pay $7500 up front and $7500 ten (10) days prior to completion of your book.
