If you have a life-changing program or story, a book could exponentially expand your impact and establish your credibility in a way nothing else can…
…but it needs to be a well-written book that people enjoy reading—even if they aren’t family members—and that’s where I come in.
As a former pastor and traditionally published author (“Radically Normal: You Don’t Have to Live Crazy to Follow Jesus,” Harvest House) with a dozen ghostwritten books under my belt (75% of them based on a coaching or training program and the rest memoirs), I write at a professional level with a commitment to being clear and engaging.
This is a major investment and not everyone claiming to be a ghostwriter has the skills to make your project shine (beware bargain rates—I’ve had to “rescue” a couple books from poor writing!). I’d encourage you to check out my testimonials on LinkedIn, but here’s one example:
“As an executive coach, I understand the value of a great ghostwriter that can gain my clients’ trust, understand their unique personalities and abilities, and then write on their behalf, capturing their voice and bringing out their best. Josh Kelley does all of that and more. I recommend him to my clients, and you, without reservation!”

Everyone’s big question: How much will it cost?
Each project is unique, and fees can range from $5,000 for a 50-page workbook based on well-developed material (such as a video course) to $50,000 for a 250-page book that requires significant development and an onsite visit (such as a memoir).
Note: You can find cheaper ghostwriters online. It all comes down to how good you want your book to be. This is what makes me worth my rates:
> Over fifteen years of professional writing experience, including a book that has been traditionally published and translated into German (copies available upon request)
> A dozen ghostwritten books (with a combined average of 4.7 stars on Amazon), including one that has been traditionally published and another that was offered representation by a literary agent.
> The ability to ask probing questions and draw your message out.
> A back-and-forth relationship that ensures your book represents, and sounds like, you.
> Writing that is clear, concise, and engaging.
