Hire the best book writers and ghostwriters in the United States


If you have knowledge, expertise and an idea for a book, but lack the time or ability to give your project the care it deserves, it’s time to hire a ghostwriter. These book writers for hire are often relied on by publishers and indie authors alike to lend their writing skills and experience to people who need help giving their ideas a life in print, without asking for credit on the cover page.


How does it work? Ghostwriters work closely with their clients to make sure they can take on their voice as accurately as possible, listening carefully to the way they use language to help them transmit their research, knowledge, and ideas to their target audience. Freelance ghostwriters work on a range of projects, writing anything from fiction and nonfiction books to marketing materials and related articles or blog posts.


If you’re hoping to hire one of the best ghostwriters in the United States (and indeed the world), you’ve come to the right place. The Reedsy marketplace only accepts 3% of these professional book writers, ensuring that only the most qualified and reliable professionals are listed on our platform.
