How To Locate A High Quality Author

By Crystal Powers

Determining just who can do the work is one of the most difficult tasks for the person who is in need of the services of a high quality author. Being capable is one thing, being available to do the work is another thing.

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

Do you think the author has experience? Importantly, is he or she 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. It's not a good idea to assume that all of the author's work is posted online because there are times that authors would hold their best work back from the public because they fear third party confidentiality or piracy.

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

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

Does the author have references? Can you get a person's name and phone number and contact them about their work?

How much does the author expect to be paid? Is there a list on the author's website about a pricing structure that he or she prefers? Will you be able to get an ironclad estimate? When it comes to payment, what 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.
