Welcome!

I am a ghostwriter with six years of writing experience. I have ghostwritten eight books and countless blogs for clients in the US, the UK, and India.

My fiction has appeared in literary magazines and journals like The Bombay Review and The Universe Journal

I am also the author of Seven Sundays, published by Hay House, 2019.

When I was hired to ghostwrite their books, my clients had one common complaint – “I want to write a book but I don’t know how to proceed with the idea?”

And that is why we exist!

The job of a ghostwriter, unlike what some people think, is not to create a book from scratch but to take every available material – audio, video, blogs, scribblings on tissue papers – and weave it into a story. We ghostwriters are like tailors. However, instead of stitching cloth, we stitch words, sentences, paragraphs, and pages provided by you into the desired pattern.

Ghostwriting has been around for a long time. The most famous instance being that of Auguste Maquet, the ghostwriter who helped Alexandre Dumas write ‘The Three Musketeers’ and ‘ The Count Of Monte Cristo’. There was a huge controversy when his name was removed before every publication and he even took Dumas to court. He was later awarded monetary damages but Dumas kept the sole publishing rights.

Today, ghostwriters are more common. Celebrities and well-known personalities often use ghostwriting services to write a book. The partnership works in different ways and depends on the contract between the two parties.

Ghostwriting is an amazing way to write the book you have always wanted to write. Remember, you may credit a ghostwriter for the work, but at the end of the day it will be your book. As I said before, you provide the words and we simple stitch them into the desired pattern.


My Writing Process

My writing process is simple. I conduct an interview and then we meet either weekly or bi-monthly through video conferencing to discuss the manuscript. I am also ready to travel if required.

After the interview, I begin writing and spend close to two or three months getting the meat of the book in one place. Then I start chiseling out the redundant portion until all that we are left with is a clean manuscript.

Finally, I proofread the book to ensure it’s publishable and then send it across to you.

The project turnaround time is anywhere between 4 – 6 months.

About Seven Sundays

Seven Sundays chronicles the story of 40-year-old Alok, who, despite all his efforts, finds himself in the worst scenario possible—his business venture fails, his wife and daughter leave him, and, on top of everything, he is under a mountain of debt. But just when it seemed like all is lost, an old acquaintance makes a return to his life and sets in motion a profound change.

Written in an unconventional format of a fable within a narrative, the book takes an explorative journey into the nature of failure and why we need to identify and embrace it. Featuring a host of intriguing characters that include the Magician, Wizard, and Maiden, Seven Sundays is one of those books that are as intriguing as they are enchanting and will stay with you for a long, long time.
