If privacy and discretion are your top concerns, you want to find a ghostwriter. A professional ghostwriter is a writer you never see – literally a “ghost writer”. You are the author and your name is the only name that people see.
When you hire a ghostwriter from The Happy Guy Writing Services, you get more than just discretion – you get a writer committed to writing the words that sound like they come from you. We have ghostwritten fiction and non-fiction of every genre, from fantasy to mystery to Christian to biographies to business. We have ghostwritten speeches and song lyrics and articles for academic journals.
Our writers are passionate about every project they work on; that’s why you get the very best from them.
Get Published Faster
Hiring our professional ghostwriters will increase your chances that a publisher or literary agent will pick up your manuscript.
Many famous authors and busy celebrities have hired ghostwriters for their books, and most national and corporate leaders hire professional ghostwriters for their speeches, presentations, articles, press releases, marketing materials, letters and anything else they write. Many seemingly “ordinary” people with a special story to tell have also hired ghostwriters. You can join the ranks of these celebrated authors now, by filling in the form on this page.
Very important – you will build a close one-on-one relationship with your ghostwriter. We believe this is critical for the success of your book, speech, screenplay or article.
Accolades for our “ghost writers”
Here are a few quick references from satisfied clients. Obviously, most ghostwriting clients cannot be named, but these have allowed us to publish the words they sent us in private. (Read more testimonials here.)
Lena – autobiography client
Thank you so much; you are amazing…I have read some of the later chapters and am amazed. It’s great. That will give them something to talk about. There is a lot from to study there and I must get the facts right before I claim it as my book. But over the few weeks, I shall do so. It’s very late now and I can’t read anymore as I am tired and overwhelmed. You are great. Thanks again. Will be in touch once I have read the whole thing again and probably with some changes. Those last few chapters are red hot.
Denise Reccia – self-help author
Yes Thank you David!! I am very, very happy with the outcome! Debra was fabulous to work with and an amazing person! I highly recommend her for future projects. She will definitely be my choice again.
Steve Rawlinson – owner, OnlineDegreeReviews.org
My website has really started to grow over the past few weeks, mostly due to the press release you and Corey wrote.
Maya – novelist
Oh wow, I am crying. It is beautiful. And I am not just saying that because it is my book and all. It flows smoothly. I am pleased. I am confident I will land a contract with that. Now I feel confident. I didn’t feel that confidence before with my manuscript. Being a writer, I know that my manuscript didn’t have the smoothness I was aiming for. Thanks so much.
Bill – screenplay developer
Hey Kristen, What more can I say…You hit it on the nose of what I was thinking. Thank you. And the 36 pages…All I can say is you write what I am thinking and I’m still blown away. I’m so glad I went with you and SEO WRITER. Thank you for fulfilling my vision on my screenplay. You see what I want to be seen to others. Thanks.
Why people hire a ghostwriter service
There are many reasons for hiring a ghostwriter agency. Here are some of the reasons we have heard from clients over the years.

You hire a ghostwriter to save time.
Busy people know they won’t have time to write their book themselves or to blog consistently. They hire a ghostwriter to manage their time. This is particularly true of entrepreneurs, coaches, solopreneurs and businesses.
Not everyone realizes how much work goes into drafting a manuscript. We get many people, especially fiction and biography clients, who have been “trying to” write their book for years or “meaning to get started”. When they set out to find a ghostwriter for hire, it’s because they see that they’ll need help.
Here is what some authors say about finding a ghostwriter to save them time:
- “I already have a publishing company that wants to publish the book, but the problem is that I have a lot of medical problems that make it very hard for me to sit and just work on my book.”
- “Every time I try to start writing, something gets in the way. I don’t have time to do this myself. I need a ghostwriter to help.”
- “I have all the names and concepts of each chapter. Just need help bringing it to life.”
- ”I have already written a 35,000 word sci fi manuscript and i need help rewriting and improving it.”
Authors hire ghostwriters to get started.
It’s not just time that deters many would-be authors. Those who find a ghostwriter will become authors. Those who stare at a blank screen will never be an author .
Sometimes it’s too hard to get started on your manuscript. Call it writer’s block. Call it inertia. Call it what you will, but some people will never launch that book-writing project without a freelance ghostwriter to take on the project.
“Where do I start?”
Your ghostwriter knows where to start, how to get an outline going. She knows how to organize your information into a manuscript that is not just easy to read but hard to stop reading.
Some authors have told us why they need to hire a ghostwriter to get started:
- “I just need help organizing my thoughts and putting them in novel (true story) format.”
- ”I have always enjoyed writing; although, I am so close to this story my difficulty is knowing where to begin [and not to curse every other word].”
- “The ghost write would organize my thoughts.”
Other authors have no problem getting started, but need to hire a ghostwriter when they get stuck, as these clients attest:
- “I have written the book but it is not complete till the end.”
- “Hello, my book is about 30K words right now, but I am getting very stuck in completing it.”
- “My memoir needs someone to help me fill in the blanks like conversations and such to go with my many, many stories.”
- “It may need a few chapters to be added and I’m open to suggestions.”
- ”Around 18000 words are written but needs work on it and needs organising.”
People find ghostwriters for their skill and experience.
There are some things that almost everybody can do.
- Almost everybody can speak. But few people can stir and audience to action.
- Almost everybody can run. But few people can complete the Boston marathon.
- Almost everybody can write. But few people can keep readers on the edge of their seats.
Many authors have a great story, but they know they need to hire a professional writer to bring it alive. Sure, they can write clear and effective office memos and emails, but that is not the same thing as writing a book or a blog post.
In fact, not all ghostwriters are suited for every project. Some have the skills and experience to write fiction; others do not. Some have the skills and experience to write screenplays; others do not. Some have the skills and experience to write business articles; others do not. Some have the skills and experience to write speeches; others do not.
Just because someone is a writer does not mean they are suited to every project, and we are careful to assign only writers well-matched for your project. If you have letters to write, a report to prepare and a speech to deliver, blog posts to publish and other items to write, you should probably find a ghostwriter service for at least some of them. Even if you write some of those items well, chances are a professional can help with the others.
Even so, not everybody is even able to write clear and effective office memos and emails. Some people never were that educated. Some people want to write in a second or third language. If English is not your first language, hiring a ghostwriter can convert your articulate thoughts into an articulate and persuasive manuscript.
Some clients have told us why they need a ghostwriter’s skill and experience:
- “Because English is not my first language and of my lack of writing experience, I had to look for a book writer or a ghostwriter who can help me to accomplish my dream.”
- ”The idea is good, the writing sucks. I would like a completed work that people won’t laugh at as being totally amateurish.”
- “The book has already been self published and after that, I found a publisher who insists on rewriting it.”
- “I have done some writing but I’m not sure if what I have done is enough or if what I have done is organized enough. I believe I need some help to write the entire story. I find I am better at telling the story than writing it. Can you help?”
- “Would it be possible for you to just ghostwrite parts of my book, or to put the events that happened in a better story so the reader will stay engaged?”
- “I do not have a great amount of writing experience and would need assistance.”

How to work with a ghostwriter – helpful tips for authors and entrepreneurs
Working with a ghostwriter is different than working on your own. You will need to give your ghostwriter precise instruction so that the writing comes out exactly how you want it. These are a few tips to follow to make your ghostwriting project a success.
Tap or click to read more on how to work with a ghostwriter.
Define your audience.
Every writing project begins with defining your audience. Ideally, you can give your audience a complete persona – name, age, gender, career, etc. When working with a ghostwriter, this becomes even more critical. You might have a hazy image of your reader in your head, but it needs to be crystal clear if you are to communicate it to the ghostwriter.
Know the tone you want to set.
Any story or explanation can be written in a variety of ways. Your ghostwriter needs to know from the start if you want to be formal or friendly, fact-based or sensationalistic, artistic or urban.
Date every item and include in a timeline.
Before you hire a ghostwriter, prepare a timeline of all key points. The more detailed your timeline, the better your ghostwriter will be able to follow the story and not miss any details. Don’t send a dozen emails with several dozen letters, depositions, email trails, etc. Each item should be sent individually, with a unique title and its own reference on the timeline.
Provide timely feedback on each chapter.
Your ghostwriter will provide you with drafts of each chapter as they are completed. What happens next depends greatly on how you’ve arranged to work with your ghostwriter. You might have decided that work on your manuscript stops until you provide feedback. Or you might have decided to continue writing the next chapter while your review it.
Whichever way you choose, it is important for you to give your writer timely feedback.
If work stops while you review, timely feedback ensures that the writing isn’t delayed. It also ensures that the ghostwriter begins the next chapter with the previous one still fresh in her mind. Yes, your manuscript will flow better with timely feedback to your ghostwriter.
If work continues while you review, timely feedback ensures that the ghostwriter doesn’t have to backtrack. If you need changes to the chapter, those changes might affect the next chapter that the ghostwriter has already begun to write. Even worse if the ghostwriter gets several chapters ahead of your review. Not only would changes mean a lot of extra work for the writer, but it means that the writing risks being less organized, like a road that gets patched many times rather than having a single coat of fresh pavement.
Give comments in track changes.
Just as editors provide your comments in track changes, you should do the same for your ghostwriter. This helps the writer see exactly what changes you want, in case they affect the next chapter. Or in case your ghostwriter has a better way of making those changes.
If the changes you see are bigger, you’ll want to explain. For instance, if you want a change of tone. Or if you feel a certain aspect needs to be more details. These require a full explanation by email or maybe even a call.
Will you name names?
This an important question from the start. Will this be a “true crime” or a factual account? Or will it be a fiction based on a true story. Or it will be a true story with names, places and identifying features changed to protect the innocent and the nervous.
This is where it helps to consult your lawyer before even hiring a ghostwriter.
