Natalie McNee Ghostwriter and Copywriter

WHAT I DO.

I help people from the everyday business entrepreneur to colossal corporate entities achieve their goal of having their life story/teachings /experiences written in a publishable book format by providing a ghostwriting and publishing consulting service. I also create original website, blog and article content through my copywriting service. Basically whatever you need written I can do it ;)

WHY I’M DIFFERENT.

I am not one to rock the boat; instead I like to flip it over. If you want your book or written content to stand out from the rest then I am your woman to write it. I have learnt over the years that it is the WHY and the PEOPLE behind the story that make it an irresistible read to put down.

WHAT OTHERS SAY.

Natalie, your work is amazing, you took our slangy speech and scribbled handwritten notes and turned them into an enjoyable and inspiring book that all can enjoy. It was as if we relived our entire time in the mission field when we read your work.

ABOUT ME

I am a freelance ghostwriter, copywriter and publishing consultant. As a copywriter I’ve honed in on my IT and technical writing skills to provide clients with targeted messages to raise their profile and increase their sales. Every copywriter knows that the only way to survive in this business is to write compelling copy that SELLS. Since 2007 I have used my experience to offer a professional writing service to many industries including IT, Telecommunications, Health and Fitness, Dental, Photographic, Retail, Finance and Children’s companies. Prior to this I was a technical writer and business intelligence consultant.

I also specialise in ghostwriting non-fiction novels and corporate history books. I have had the privilege to write for some amazing individuals, missionaries, large international ministries and not-for-profit organisations. With writing books often comes many questions from clients on how to get their work published, there is no one single formula to make this happen and therefore I also offer publishing advice on both self-publishing and traditional publishing methods which allow my clients to make informed decisions before any money is spent. The strategies I offer will help clients in creating their business model – because writing has now become a business in its own right.

I have a passion to help those with stories to tell and to share their amazing experiences with the world. I would love to see more Australian writers, ministries and businesses impact the international markets and therefore I am focusing on offering my services to Australians first and foremost. I am happy to announce that my clients have achieved their goals of having published non-fiction novels, with some even being on Amazon’s top 10 best-seller list and some have been on various TV programs to discuss their books.

If you would like more information please read my blog, if you are still unsure of anything or would like to discuss your project please feel free to contact me. If you live in the Perth area I will be happy to meet with you to have a chat and a coffee (although I prefer to have a hot chocolate or a chai latte :))

What Is A Ghostwriter?

A ghost writer is a writer who writes books, stories, articles, or other texts that are officially credited to another person. Ghost writers’ services can include:

  • Editing and proofreading rough drafts.
  • Researching subject matter and compiling manuscripts.
  • Transcribing recordings and compiling manuscripts.
  • Writing complete manuscripts based on the requirements provided by the author.

Who Gets The Credit?

All copyrights are given to the client/author who purchased the ghostwriter’s services. Sometimes acknowledgement by the author is given in the acknowledgements or introduction section of the book. Partial credit can be given on the cover of the book signified by the phrase “with…” or “as told to…” The ghost writer may be credited as a “contributor” or a “research assistant”.

Often a nondisclosure statement is signed whereby the ghostwriter is forbidden to reveal their role in the production of the written work.

What Are The Benefits Of Hiring Me?

1. I have been writing for over ten years for various industries.
2. All of the ghostwriting manuscripts I have worked on have made it into the top 10 sellers list on Amazon.
3. I am a devoted Christian anointed to write under the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
4. I am experienced in both ministry and secular communications which allows for greater reach to various and targeted audiences.
5. I can create a Content Marketing Strategy which is imperative for authors and speakers to gain influence in the social media arena.
6. I can guide clients through the self-publishing routes.

What Is The Process?

Getting started…

  1. I sign a non-disclosure agreement ensuring that your ideas/messages are safe with me.
  2. I will send you a project outline that will give me an idea of your main objective of the book, the themes, target audience, conversational style, allocated budget, timeline and various other details.
  3. I will charge an hourly rate to listen to any recordings or to read any supplied manuscripts or notes that you have already prepared. This amount will be deducted from the final quote amount if the quote is accepted.
  4. I will send through any questions I may have in order to create a customised quote.
  5. I will create a quote that includes pricing, timeline and payment schedule.

 

Getting down to the nitty gritty…..

 

  1. Once you have accepted and signed the quote I require a 50% deposit for the first milestone before any work will commence.
  2. I begin working on your book.
  3. I will be in constant contact with you to discuss the progress of the book, ask questions and provide feedback/guidance on any needed changes.
  4. Once the draft for the first milestone is completed I will send it to you for any changes/comments.
  5. I will make any final touches as per comments/change requests and then create a complete work.
  6. Payment for each milestone is made within 7 days of delivery of the manuscript.
  7. This process (steps 1- 6) is repeated for each milestone.
  8. I send the completed manuscript to my proof reader.
  9. I send the proofread manuscript to you for any minor changes.
  10. Final payment is made within 7 days of delivery of the manuscript.

How Much Is A Book Going To Cost Me?

Unfortunately authors underestimate the cost of hiring a ghostwriter and certain variables need to be considered before a final costing can be given:

1. Current notes or the completion of a manuscript.
2. Word count.
3. Research required to complete the manuscript.
4. Decisiveness of current manuscript (will the author request many changes)

A typical novel is around 50,000 words and a lifestyle or spirit-filled manual ranges from 25,000 -75,000 words. Ghost writers can charge either per word, per page, per hour or provide a fixed fee, with the going rate being .60cents – $1 per word. Children’s books are obviously cheaper.

Where possible I always prefer to give my clients a fixed fee quote so they know exactly what to expect. When you hire me you are paying for my extensive experience, IT and technical know-how, inspiration, honesty and dedication to your project.

The price I quote for your job will include:
• All communication via email, phone or Skype.
• Reading, listening to audio recordings and research.
• Ghostwriting for the agreed number of pages.
• Two rounds of minor revisions.
• Proofreading (by an external resource).
