commercial publication

Books for commercial publication are books which the author intends to sell for a profit. Regardless of whether they are sold via traditional publishing or self-published, books for commercial publication should sell, at minimum, 10,000 copies, but have the potential to sell a great deal more.


I have the expertise to format your book for both print and electronic publishing, and provide both as a regular part of my service. Besides the number of words included in your finished product (word count), there are three factors involved in the rate I charge for ghostwriting for commercial publication.


  • Fiction. I take your idea, outline, characters, plot, and other elements and craft them into a work of fiction that will grab the reader's attention and keep them turning pages from start to finish. (time commitment 2 to 6 months)
  • Non-fiction. I take notes, charts, photos, graphs and whatever additional information you have and from those elements craft a non-fiction book that is equally engaging to the reader as my fiction work. (time commitment 4 to 9 months)
  • Non-fiction with research. I take an idea and general outline for your non-fiction work, research the topics, organize and craft an engaging non-fiction book. (time commitment 8 to 12 months)

Some of you knew my Dad and Grandpa. They were kind, selfless men who were amiable and generous to anyone and everyone around them. They weren’t just that way out in public, they were that way at home too, but they were also very focused when it came to getting a day’s work done. They could be a little harsh with their intensity on occasion, but even in their harshness, they were teaching us to be better men. One phrase that I can recall hearing on several occasions was, “Keep your butt behind you!”
