When the quote is approved we arrange another chat. This stage is called ‘getting a brief’. When we get the brief, we ask a bunch of questions about what the person or business is hoping to achieve; deadlines, any ideas they have for the content and so forth.
Sometimes we will request the client send us a bullet point list of their ideas, or a client might share something they have read that is good inspiration, research or even just in the style they’re after. When we have enough information, we can begin.
Our professional writers will produce the written work by the agreed deadline. The client can then review and request any amendments if needed – additions, things to remove and so on. In some cases, no amendments are needed. If they are required, we make the amendments and deliver the completed project to the client along with the final invoice. Upon payment of the invoice the IP ownership passes to the client, who can then legally present the work under their own name.
CAN WE SIGN AN NDA?
Yes, we are happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement if you feel it is required. The purpose of this service is for us to be the invisible contributor, so we understand the importance of confidentiality when working on ghost writing projects.
IIS GHOST WRITING LEGAL?
Yes it is completely legal to seek the services of a ghost writer.
IS GHOST WRITING ETHICAL?
Yes it is ethical to seek professional help in an area where you may lack the time or experience to complete a project to the standard you desire.
IS GHOST WRITING PLAGIARISM?
Not entirely. Plagiarism is where you copy an author’s work without their permission. In the case of ghost writing, you are paying an author for their work and you have their permission to put your name on the finished product.
ARE THERE ANY SORTS OF THINGS INTERGALACTIC CONTENT WON'T GHOST WRITE?
Academic papers and essays. We would be delighted to offer our proofreading services for school, university or TAFE students however we believe it isn’t ethical for us to write essays, reports or theses on behalf of other people.
WHAT SORTS OF THINGS DO YOU USUALLY GHOST WRITE?
We’ve been engaged on a number of ghost writing projects. Due to the nature of the work we can’t disclose more about the projects other than the types of things we’ve done. These include ghost writing for blogs, LinkedIn profiles, resumes/CVs, books, biographies, eBooks, articles, speeches and presentations.
HOW MUCH DOES GHOST WRITING COST?
We offer three options for our services. It will depend on the nature of the project. Some projects are hard to accurately scope or are likely to be quick to complete. In these cases, you could be better off engaging our services on an hourly rate.
Other projects are easier to define before we begin, so we can quite accurately quote for the project. In these cases, you will be invoiced three times, 30% on initial acceptance of the quote, 40% midway through the agreed project timeframe and 30% upon completion. Complete ownership of the intellectual property becomes yours once 100% of the project costs have been paid.
The third option is best for long term engagement or ongoing projects. We offer a retainer system whereby we agree to a weekly, fortnightly or monthly figure and a total number of hours which we will dedicate to your project during that time period. Unused hours can be rolled over into the next time period. Retainer hours are billed at a lower hourly rate. If you use all your retainer hours for a specified time, additional ad hoc hours are billed at the lower, retainer rate.
Some writers hate the idea of letting someone else take the credit for their work, but that’s great news for us. Send all the ghost writing jobs our way! We are happy to put our egos aside and deliver professional writing services to our clients in Brisbane and around the English-speaking world so you may reach your professional goals.

Understanding Ghost Writing Services
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN YOU'RE CONSIDERING HIRING A GHOST WRITER

WHAT IS GHOST WRITING?
It’s the process by which a person or business engages the services of a professional writer to anonymously produce some content which will be attributed back to the person or business employing the writer. Put simply, we do the writing, you take the credit.
HOW DOES THE GHOST WRITING PROCESS WORK?
A client will approach us, usually through email to enquire about the service. We arrange to chat over phone or video – rarely in person – about the person’s needs. Once we understand the project scope we can provide a quote.
