Where Can I Find 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.

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

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

Try to find 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?

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?

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.
