Finding A High Quality Author

By Greg Tilley

For the person who is need of the services of a high quality author, one of the most difficult task they will face is determining just who can do the work. It's not enough that one is capable because he or she must also be available to do the work.

To ensure that you find a capable and available author, there are several things that you, the hiring party, can do.

Do you think the author has experience? Also, do you think that he or she may be able to write on the proposed topic? If he or she is a good author, then they will have samples of their work available for your perusal. Authors would sometimes hold their best work back from the public due to fears of piracy or because of third party confidentiality and because of this, do not assume that all of the author's work is posted online.

If the author is to cover a topic outside of their areas of expertise are you willing to pay extra for the research the author may need to do in order to accomplish the task?

Is the author presently busy with other assignments or is he or she available to work on your project now? Is your deadline tight right now? Can you work with the author's schedule or is your schedule not flexible? If there is no agreement that can be made to do the current project, would you consider using the same author at a future date for a different project?

Does the author have references? Will you be able to get the name and phone number of that person and contact them about their work?

What is the amount of payment that the author expecting? Perhaps the author has a list of his or her pricing structure on their website. Will you be able to get an ironclad estimate? What payment methods are expected?

Is the author writing as a ghostwriter or do you want the author to use his or her name and submit the articles to article directories for links back to your site?

Discussing over the phone the details of what the hiring party wants, what they can do for this person, and attempt to get a better feel for the job is what any author may prefer to do.
