So you want to write a book — but you don’t have time.
No problem. Hire a ghostwriter. (Ahem, ME!) I’ll work with you to write in your voice, so that no one will know you didn’t pen it yourself. Unless you “out” me and give me credit.
Ghostwriters do more than “just” write: I’ll help you to research, organize your thoughts, and pull out the nuggets and gems of your story that will delight, entertain, and motivate your readers. I’ll help you to structure the book, even determine the number of chapters. We’ll also discuss images and layout. We will definitely be working as a team, as your input and collaboration is critical to birthing the book you’re carrying within your heart.
Who is a good candidate to work with a ghostwriter?
YOU ARE — if you’re ready to get started, if you have the budget, if you’re open to feedback (but it’s still your book!), if you’re able to provide constructive criticism, and if you’re committed to staying focused during the months it takes to move your book from idea to print-ready manuscript. (The thrill of seeing your name on that book spine is so worth it!)
Here’s what I bring to the table: Critical listening skills, great interview skills, humbleness, an open mind, tenacity, seasoned writing skills, and a positive viewpoint. (Yes, I own a set of pom-poms. Go, YOU!)
Full-length manuscripts typically take six to twelve months to complete, based on client feedback and availability. In the first couple of months we’ll create a detailed chapter outline that meets your approval. Then I’ll start writing, passing the chapters to you for review, to ensure we’ve nailed the tone and voice you’re seeking. When the manuscript draft is complete, we’ll go over it with a fine-tooth comb, making sure we’re both happy.
A good ghostwriter, book doctor, or writing coach isn’t cheap. But you don’t want cheap; you want solid, experienced help!
Send me an email if you’re ready to get the ball rolling on your book. I’d love to chat with you.
