Thomas Hauck

Professional Freelance Book Editor and Ghostwriter
   United States
  |   Gloucester, MA


No one will work harder to make you happy! As a professional ghostwriter, book editor, and best-selling author (see me on, for over two hundred satisfied Elance clients I've ghostwritten or edited books and ebooks in all genres including fiction, memoir, business, self-help, inspiration, and finance. As my valued client you'll receive:

- My fifteen years of award-winning ghostwriting and book editing expertise.
- The highest level of professional service.
- My personal phone number for questions and consultation.
- Please remember that the Elance level (mine is "5") reflects only a provider's level of professional activity on Elance. I serve many high-level private clients outside of Elance.

I always provide reasonable revisions at no extra charge. I'll stay on the job until the project meets your expectations. You'll have confidence and peace of mind knowing that your book meets the highest professional standards.

Thank you, and I look forward to serving you.
Service Description
I work with both aspiring and published authors who need their new book ghostwritten, edited, or proofread to its highest polish.

For fiction projects, I provide comprehensive services including developmental editing, line editing, and proofreading. I will always provide my candid opinion about areas that may be improved including plot, characters, setting, and elements of suspense.

For nonfiction and business books, I also provide fact checking, research, and original writing where necessary. Many of my clients give me an outline or a set of bullet points, and I expand these into full book length. My MBA gives me an edge in tackling high-level business and finance topics.

I'm usually booked up weeks in advance, but I always have time for a new client who is fed up with mediocre results from low-end providers. My clients know that cheaper cut-rate writing just isn't worth it.

It's all about being on the cutting edge and creating the most powerful message possible. That's why I'm a top Elance provider, ghostwriter, and book editor.

I live and work in historic Gloucester, Massachusetts. (You've heard of "The Perfect Storm"? That's Gloucester. Or, more accurately, "Glosta.") I collaborate with a team of highly qualified professionals in the areas of web design, finance, academia, and creative writing. But I never outsource my writing - my clients know that every word of text is written by me. I do not take shortcuts.

My capabilities include:

Book editing
Author feedback (How can I improve my story?)
Formatting in Word
Tables of content in Word
Publisher and agent proposals

Business and management books
Financial white papers
Case studies and business reports
Grants and project proposals

Some of my recent global clients include, Arbor Books, PortfolioScience, AbacusLaw, Best Practice Institute, EBSCO Publishing, Stanford Capital Finance,,, Target Direct Marketing, Expressive Web Solutions, Diva Toolbox, Montserrat College of Art, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, Wenham Museum, Cambridge Art Association, and North Shore Music Theatre. I'd be delighted if you became one of my valued clients, too.

Here are a few comments from recent clients:

"Thomas was outstanding and professional in all of my dealings. A quality individual whom I would recommend highly!" - Grant Travena, author of the "Dynamic Resume Writing System" and an Elance client.

"When I needed a professional book editor to repair shoddy work performed by a cut-rate provider, Tom transformed my book from a disaster to a diamond. I am very grateful and so are my readers." - Janice Plumstock, author of "Your Financial Future."

"Tom was the Festival's feasibility study manager during preparations for the Festival's $17-million capital campaign to create the Festival Center. He provided critical input into the campaign's case study. As feasibility study manager Tom also served as a key member of the public relations committee, charged with managing the flow of sensitive information and shaping public opinion during the critical early phases of the project." - Elizabeth Redmond, General Manager, Rockport Chamber Music Festival.

"Thomas did an excellent job for us and gave us some great advice that we were able to use in the creation of our website. I would highly recommend him!" - Stacy Johnson, CEO, Aubaine Recruiting.

"Tom wrote over fifty grant proposals, and was responsible for securing a $30,000 grant from a Boston corporate foundation. We are grateful for Tom's many positive contributions, both as Director of Development and as a friend of the College. We leave the door open for future collaboration." - Stan Trecker, President, Montserrat College of Art.

"His work has been immensely valuable to the Wenham Museum as we have grown exponentially since a recent capital expansion. I am pleased to recommend Tom warmly." - Emily Stearns, Executive Director, Wenham Museum.

"I will recommend Tom to any of my colleagues who need the expertise of a quality copywriter. He is professional and timely in his communication and interaction with the project manager. More importantly, he takes the time to research and study the subject matter before tackling the project." - Nicholas Ventimiglio, Certified Divorce Financial Analyst.

"Thomas is terrific. Intelligent, articulate, bright - a true scholar and gentleman. He is also very sensitive to pricing in today's market - which shows that he is a consummate professional. I am proud to call him a part of my all-star team. I don't want to tell you too many great things about him because I consider him to be a secret weapon!" - Louis Carter, President of Best Practice Institute and co-author of "Best Practices in Talent Management: How the World's Leading Corporations Manage, Develop, and Retain Top Talent."
