Ghostwriting & special projects
WORKING WITH ME
I’ve been a professional writer for 10 years. I’ve been self-employed for 7 of those years, primarily working as a ghostwriter, copywriter, and writing coach / consultant.
Over the course of my career, I have collaborated with 200 clients — from perfume companies to cancer treatment centers to bestselling authors — on all kinds of projects.
Past clients include: tech companies like Hewlett-Packard and Freckle, celebrity-driven brands like Rachel Zoe’s DreamDry, fitness and wellness companies like Curvy Yoga and Second Firsts, Internet superstars like Danielle LaPorte, Susan Hyatt, and Marie Forleo, and restaurants like The Green Moustache.
MY FAVORITE TYPES OF CLIENTS
I love working with clients who are actively striving to make the world a safer, kinder, healthier place.
My obsessions include: personal growth, fitness, wellness, yoga, food, creativity, and music, so I get extra-excited about working with businesses in those industries.
THINGS I DO
Clients typically hire me to write…
– Advice columns
– Blog posts
– Book proposals
– Book manuscripts
– Educational materials
– Email templates
– Podcast scripts
– Press releases
– Product descriptions
– Product labels
– Product names

THINGS I DON’T DO
I don’t do the following types of projects:
– Book editing (writing: yes. editing: no.)
– Cover letters
– LinkedIn profiles
– Technical manuals
– “Urgent” or “rush” jobs
My hourly rate is $150. My minimum booking is 20 hours.
Here’s how clients typically work with me…
20 hours. $3,000.
A 20-hour block of time is ideal for small, short-ish projects — like writing a series of blog posts, email newsletters, or podcast scripts. Once you purchase this time, we’ve got to “use it up” within 1 month.
35 hours. $5,250.
A 35-hour block of time is ideal for medium-sized projects, like writing a 70 – 100 page e-book, or a substantial e-course. Once you purchase this time, we’ve got to “use it up” within 1 month.
70 hours. $10,500.
A 70-hour block of time is ideal for larger projects, like writing a 200 – 250 page book manuscript. Once you purchase this time, we’ve got to “use it up” within 2 months.
Want me to teach a workshop on email-writing at your company? Want to fly me to your city to do a special class with your clients? Want to spend a weekend with me, face to face, so we can outline a big project that’s tugging at your heart?
If you’ve got a “special request,” feel free to tell me about it. I can’t always say “Yes” — mainly due to time constraints — but I’m always open to new and unexpected possibilities!
If you’d like to hire me… thank you! That’s awesome! Typically, I’m booked up 4 – 6 months in advance. Right now, I have availability for new projects starting in: May 2017.
If you’re interested in hiring me, you can send me an email. Or, you can just hop onto my client waiting list (there’s a sign-up form just below) and I’ll notify you when I’m ready to take on some new projects. Thanks so much!
“Everybody can be great… because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” ―Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Whatever you do, write or say for the rest of today…
Let it be generated by love.
“At a meeting at Random House HQ — with Franz to my right — I told my publishing power-team, ‘If anything, uh, happens to me, Alexandra can finish writing the book.’ I trust her that much. And I know her talent, that well.”
“Alexandra Franzen is a GENIUS. I consider her one-in-a-million level talent with a killer combination of speed, intelligence, wit, charm and a gigantic heart.”
“Alex: You have the heart and soul of a zen master — and the love and joy of a kung fu panda.”
—Master Phil Nguyen
“To work with Alexandra Franzen is to know her genius, her speed and her incredible ability to see who you are and celebrate it. Not only did I leave her workshop with the sketch of a juicy project — I left with my soul furniture rearranged.”
“Alex: your workshop helped me un-clutter my mental landscape and find the words that have been waiting for me. Thank you.”
“Often, in my day-job, I feel like I’m a right-brain gal in a left-brain world. Alex, attending one of your workshops was a huge recalibration for me — a soul tune-up.”
“Since coming home from your workshop, I have been writing… differently. My posts are getting shared a lot more (10x more!) and I’m receiving comments and messages of appreciation. I feel like I’ve tapped into a secret ingredient. Thank you.”
