How To Locate 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.

Find out if the author has experience. Importantly, is he or she able to write on the proposed topic? Samples of his or her work readily available for your perusal is what a good author will have. 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.

If covering a topic outside of their areas of expertise is what the author must do, will you be willing to pay extra for the research that they need to do so that they can 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?

Try to determine how much the author expects to be paid. Does the author list on his or her website a pricing structure? Can you get an ironclad estimate? What payment methods are they expecting.

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

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.
