How To Locate A High Quality Author

By Crystal Powers

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.

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

Does the author have experience? Also, do you think that he or she may be able to write on the proposed topic? A good author will have samples of his or her work readily 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.

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 presently busy with other assignments or is he or she available to work on your project now? Just how tight is your deadline? Is your schedule not flexible or can you work with the author's schedule? 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?

Have you found out if the author has references? Do you thing you can the phone number and the name of the person and contact them to ask 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?

Either the author could write as a ghostwriter or you can have him or her use their own name and submit the article 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.
