Justin Sloan is a ghostwriter of novels and screenplays. He specializes in fantasy and science fiction, middle grade, and thrillers. He is also interested in videogame novelizations.


Justin's range depends on whether his name is on the project or not, how much of an outline or writer freedom there is, and other factors. Figure around $0.30 a word.

For example, if you are giving him a lot of freedom but provide him with a basic idea or outline and don't require revisions, a 50k word book could come out to $15k.


Justin is a screenwriter who was staffed on DJ2 Entertainment's TV-hybrid titled Rival S/Peak. He optioned a pilot to A+E and a feature to Rampart Films. Justin served as part of a writing room on such narrative-driven games as Game of Thrones, Tales from the Borderlands, Walking Dead, and Minecraft: Story Mode. You can find his books on Amazon and. He also taught Muay Thai kickboxing and served five years in the U.S. Marine Corps (for which he is a disabled, protected veteran).

Oh, and can play three songs on the bagpipes!

"One of the things that Justin excels at is writing his characters so well that they shine clearly through the (deliberate) murky situation on this space station. I find I’m not rooting for one side or the other, and I don’t feel any need to because I’m rooting for the characters. I’m about three-quarters of the way through the first book and I still have no idea how it will end. Recommended."
