Jilly Prather Literary Services

If you’re ready to finally have that book written you’ve been wanting, this is the first and last ghostwriting site you’ll ever need.


I have no overhead like the Big Boys do with hundreds of employees, and a multi- story office to pay for. So, I don’t need to charge you in the high 5 figures to ghostwrite or co-author your book.  Big overhead has nothing to do with quality. With over 20 years of experience and bestsellers under my belt, I have the expertise and knowledge to create your book just the way you want it.  I treat every client and their story as a bestselling project.

Like the Big Boys, my clients have appeared on Dateline, 20/20, etc. also.
If you feel your project has movie potential let’s talk about it!

I’m Not Your Typical Ghostwriter


Your usual ghostwriter types up what you tell her, takes your money, and you are left with an unpublished manuscript. You have no idea how to get it published. I can guarantee publishing. Yep. Self-publishing has become a completely new paradigm in the industry.  Plenty of writers are making big money publishing with Amazon as Indie authors. I can also help you crack the code of publishing traditionally through my contacts in the industry if that’s what you prefer.  Either way, I’d love to talk to you about your ideas and the best way to publish for you.

The process and price is different for each client depending on the scope of the work, page count, how you want to publish, and a few other things. Basically, it takes 3 to 6 months to write your book, which includes interviewing, editing each chapter and a final draft perfection edit. The time to try for a traditional publisher through a literary agent takes a few months and requires a book proposal.  I offer a self-publishing  package that is turn-key; everything from formatting for the Kindle/Amazon, cover, Amazon publishing to your own page with author bio and book description can be all-inclusive in the price.  Give me a call or shoot me an email and let’s talk about your needs and goals!
