William Hammett, Independent Ghostwriter


"William Hammett helped me shape my true crime book with invaluable developmental editing and suggestions. He's a talented professional who knows the publishing world well." ~ Susan Fensten, book publicist at FenstenPR and former publicist with Random House, Rizzoli, and Oxford University Press

"Bill Hammett did a great job editing my memoir, A Teacher Shoots Back, and we have remained friends for years. I highly recommend his services." ~ Gary Weart, author, teacher, and school administrator

"Bill took my 162,000 word novel and addressed the concerns of my publisher, turning it into a shorter suspense novel that will be published in 2015. He's the best!" ~ L. J. Midoglio

"The eBook sales for my series of thrillers on Amazon have been phenomenal thanks to Bill's talent for writing fiction. He's a natural!" ~ published author Walter Mills Jacobs (who writes under a pseudonym)

"I had some notes on scraps of paper about the days I built resort hotels in Baja for celebrities and big game hunters and fishermen. Bill took these vignettes and crafted them into my memoir. John Wayne, Fred Astaire, and Jayne Mansfield – they're all in my book that Bill brought to life. Bill is aces in my book." ~ Lou Federico, author of One Hell of a Ride

"Many thanks, Bill, for all the hours of poring over my blogs, taking the stories, and getting them to read as one big adventure and always keeping my words and style intact." ~ David H. Beyda, MD, author of Border Crossings    (Note: Please click here to go to my Recent Projects page for more on Dr. Beyda's book.)

"William Hammett wrote the first in my series of romance novels, and now my agent is talking about a six-book deal with a mainstream publisher. His work is magical!" ~ Raven Willowbook

"William Hammett did a fantastic job editing my middle reader and advised me on spots I needed to flesh out better. I'm very happy with his work." ~ Kateri Courtney, author of Welby and the Knobby King"

"I was willing to pay Bill Hammett thousands of dollars to rewrite my novel. He told me it only needed minor editing for a fraction of the cost. That's what I call honesty." ~ James R. Travers

"Bill took the time to speak with my agent in order to know what needed to be done to my nonfiction book. He gave me a personal touch that put me at ease through the entire writing and editing process." ~ Claire Taylor McGinnis
