Absolutely (in either case). Any writer who has several legitimate negative feedback reports will be removed from the network. Note: An editor refusing to work without prepayment or to do free additional work (above and beyond the scope outlined in the agreement) are not legitimate complaints; an editor missing a contractual deadline or becoming unavailable is. Because of the ethical guidelines of this network and the collection of feedback from network clients, legitimate complaints have rarely occurred since the company was formed in 2014.

The internet is crowded with online editing and writing services, so it is really tricky to find out the best ghostwriter that do the job perfectly. Finding a loyal and genuine writing service looks like nearly impossible. Here are some things that you should consider before choosing a ghostwriter:
Price Factor To be very honest, developing a good book is not an easy task as it takes several days and a lot of hard work. So, keep in mind that it also needs a good sum of money. Don’t be coaxed by affordable or third-rate ghostwriters.
Who owns the rights? It’s your idea and your book, so don’t give your rights to ghostwriters because some of the writers ask for partial rights. Be aware of these kinds of writers and don’t give your rights to anyone else.
Payment Arrangement Pay ghostwriters in installments. Pay only initial payment and pay the remaining amount if you feel satisfied with their work. So, contract a deal with the ghostwriter because it is the best possible option to reduce the risk of scams or fraud.
Who’s in charge?Working with a ghostwriter is a collaborative effort, but you should have the final say on all content decisions. If a writer is unwilling to put your needs and requests first, then it will not be your book—it will be theirs.
Who is In-Charge? If you are working with a ghostwriter, it is called as a collaborative work. However, make sure that he write content according to your requirement and you are the boss for adding or removing content from the manuscript or book.
Should I opt a firm or freelancer? We advise you to choose a firm because they are slightly trustworthy than freelancers. But, don’t forget that there are several qualified and reputable freelancers. Most of these freelancers are overbooked so check their availability before hiring in order to decrease the future nuisance. With a firm such as ours, we ensure efficiency and deliver your project within the given time period.

To publish your book traditionally, you need to find a literary agent to send your query letter or proposal. According to some writers, you have to send your sample work to more than 80 literary agents to secure a literary agent.

There are many options for publishing a book. It totally depends on you what process you choose. Traditional publishing involves various publishing houses and literary agents that represent your book to different publishing outlets request them to publish your book. This process can be daunting especially for first-time authors. In the end, you will find a publisher that purchases the rights to print your manuscript. It is a really time-consuming process and normally takes several months and years. Self- publishing is the easiest and popular nowadays. Just format the book and upload it on any platform with a cover motif. Now, it’s up to you whether you prefer self-publishing or traditional publishing. We offer both services by providing the right consultation and recommendations.
Traditional publishing is time-consuming and overwhelming process for new authors. In this process, you have to find the right literary agent that convinces publishers to publish your book. Finally, he finds a publisher that agrees to purchase the rights to publish your book. In traditional publishing, your publisher is responsible for the final look of the book, publishing, and promoting.
Both traditional and self-publishing have specific advantages. Traditional publishing is best suited for potential authors because they will earn major profits and publicity with their book. Self-publishing is best for first-time authors because publishers don’t want to take a risk. So, they can just format their book and upload it on any digital platform with just a few processes. In traditional publishing, publisher can demand for change in your manuscript and you don’t get any rights. On the other hand, self-publishing offer more freedom and you can retain your rights. In short, traditional publishing is quite a professional method because the publisher is responsible for the marketing and distribution costs. Many new authors take the benefit of self-publishing to prove their capability and marketability and can get the attention of agents and publishers. In comparison with traditional publishing, self-publishing is gaining popularity gradually.
Yes, you can send specific sections of your work to different agents and publishers. But, the most effective method is to send a modified proposal or customized query letter to more than one agent and publisher. It is necessary to clear the idea of your manuscript in your query letter to catch the attention of the publisher.
In self-publishing, we will guarantee that your book will be published. You will also get a copy of your book and we also submit it on Kindle, Amazon, and other eBook platforms for sale. In traditional publishing, we will support and guide you in this process by providing a comprehensive list of genre-appropriate publishers that help you publish your book and also take responsibility for marketing and distributing your book and you will easily get your goals but will not guarantee what the publishers responsibilities are.
There is not a reliable way to predict book sales. With variables out of anyone’s control, such as media reaction to a book and author performance on interviews, predicting book or e-book sales is not precise.
