    Just curious how much a decent ghost writer would charge per page for an informative eBook? Something around 75-100 pages? With an outline and research provided.

    Depending upon the subject matter and details you would like to be included in your book, freelance writers can charge between $10-$50 or even more (it depends on the topic and requirements) for 1000 words. Average page includes about 500-700 words, so you can do the match for 100 pages.

    I would try giving a small project work to multiple writers and see whose writing style do you like! Give same assignment to multiple writers so you can compare apples with apples.

    Those charging $10 or more per page are usually those who freelance full time as their main source of earnings. I have written e-books with general or minimum research requirements at a budget rate of $6 per page (500 words), or $450 for a 75 page book. If there are more exact or specialized requirements, the cost goes up (e.g., for graphic design or images, additional copyrighting content, testimonial collection, etc).

    I dont remember the members name, but they have a sales thread in the market place. Their rates are really good. I had them do some work for me, it turned out as directed. Anyways, you should search it out.

    I'm not actually looking to hire anyone. As my OP said, I'm just curious and researching for later.

    As it should be. I'm researching what the rates are for when I am ready to hire someone.

    Are they native English speakers or just Filipinos with good English skills?
