    I am ghost writing an ebook for someone based on their notes with no research required. What should I charge for this per word...per page?

    Thanks

    If you have experience the average rate is $250-$350. The price depends on the required research time and the word count. Since you are saying that no research is required, i guess $250 will be a fair price. Hope this helps.

    What will it cost the client to write the book himself? You may factor this in to decide on which price on the range you'd like to charge. But $250 for one month's work seems reasonable.

    $250 is good. I got paid $250 for an ebook that took me 2 weeks and it was just baby names, with hyperlinked chapters and image placements. SO yeah run with $250 or better if you can get it!
