Legacy Memoir Ghostwriter
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
~ Maya Angelou, n.p.
Maya, a great American author, and poet said this to encourage people to share their life stories. Anyone who has suffered unbearable trauma and taken the story to their grave can be used as evidence of how much of their mental health was sacrificed at the expense of keeping the story a secret.
What happens to our health, both physical and mental, if we keep our story inside? This is a question that has captured the curiosity and focus of many scientists, one of them being James W. Pennebaker, starting in the late 1980s. (Pennebaker Confronting a traumatic event: Toward an understanding of inhibition and disease).
His expressive writing study instructed participants to write about past trauma, expressing their very deepest thoughts and feelings surrounding it. In contrast, control participants were asked to write as objectively and factually as possible about neutral topics like weather, without revealing their emotions or opinions. For both groups, the time was 15 minutes of writing for four consecutive days. Several measurements were made before and after, but the most striking finding was that relative to the control group, the experimental group made significantly fewer visits to a physician in the following months. Although many reported being upset by the writing experience, they still found the practice valuable and meaningful (Pennebaker Writing About Emotional Experiences as a Therapeutic Process).
Our team of ghostwriters, editors, and beta readers can help turn your idea into a finished manuscript, quickly and affordably. We use a collaborative process so you’ll play an integral role in the process, reviewing every word. When it’s complete, you can choose to have our publishing division go to work. At the end of the process, it will be your name on the spine of a well-written, published book.

Gabriel hired a ghostwriter since he wasn’t sure how to write a memoir. The book was important to him because he had suffered through traumatic events and he felt no one really knew the truth about what happened. After battling with the court system and receiving heartache after heartache he finally decided it was time for his side of the story.

Frequently Asked Questions on our Theraputic Memoir Ghostwriter Service
I have tried writing my memoir several times in the past. I find it hard to continue and have almost given up. How can your ghostwriter help?
1. Listening with empathy so we can understand the emotions that need to be articulated
2. Building an effective story structure, proper merging with creative writing elements
3. And most importantly, ensuring that our writing process helps accomplish major and minor goals, like using your epiphanies and life lessons to create a story arc
Our writing process is collaborative, and is facilitated by having a phone discussion preferably once a week – the lead ghostwriter would lead the discussion with a set of questions and record it so we can preserve your “voice”.
What is your ghostwriting process like?
1. Skeleton Draft and Concepts Outline: Here we capture the “story arc” for a memoir or “idea arc” for a business book.
2. Clarify: With the ideas plotted, we begin identifying holes to be filled and information that need clarification, anecdotal support or graphic design. Significant amount of rearranging chapter subsections is involved to improve the overall flow of the book and even out chapter lengths.
3. Creative flair: At this stage, we ensure your unique author “voice” is preserved.
4. Simplify: Once the first draft of the manuscript is finished, an editor will be selected whose background is suitable for your project.
Do I own the finished book? Do I hold the copyright to the work?
You will have complete ownership of the finished book and it will carry your name as the author. Once the book is written, we can also work with you to produce a finished book and bring it to market under a separate agreement.
How long can it take? How much is Expedited Service?
Expedited service fees is $3,500, and extra expedited service is $5,500.
What type of books do you ghostwrite?

Non Fiction/How To Guide
Our client wanted us to create her book because she realized that, after years of working in real estate, there is not one book that covers tips or tricks of the profession comprehensively or are out dated. So, she decided to create her own. She hired us to put it together because she is incredibly busy, and although she is an excellent real estate agent, she realized she didn’t know how to write a book.
This client was abused by her mother as a young child and is now caring for her ailing mother as her health declines. She wanted to share her story in order to educate others about child abuse and offer hope and encouragement to other survivors. She was not sure where to start and felt overwhelmed by the thought of writing an entire book so she hired us to write her story.
One client wanted to share his journey of finding God with his congregation and help inspire them to have faith in God and themselves. However, he was not sure how to convert his sermons and his life story into a book and felt overwhelmed with the task at hand. He decided to hire an expert to mesh the two ideas into one story.
Another client is a history buff and had a great idea for a story but was not sure how to write it, so he hired us to help. His book is historical fiction.
Can I sign a NDA? Will all my information remain confidential?
