Do you want to write a book or screenplay but don't know how to start? Do you have an amazing life story that needs to be told? Do you want to preserve your family history for future generations?
If you are like many of my clients, you may have had thoughts like: "I want to write a book, but I don't know how to start." "I have an idea for a screenplay, but I am not a good writer." "We want to preserve our family story, but we don't have time to interview everyone, turn that into a great story, and put it on paper."
If any of those thoughts sound familiar, you are not alone. Studies show that more than 80 percent of people want to write a book but they never do. They never give themselves the opportunity to create a legacy, impact the world, or change the people around them.
As a freelance writer, this bothers me because I know there is an easy solution to this, a way that everyone can create a world-class manuscript that tells their story in their voice.
Turning your idea or story into a great book or screenplay is as simple as hiring a ghostwriter.
What is a book ghostwriter?
A book ghostwriter is a professional writer who has been hired by someone else to write a book for them, often without credit. The ghostwriter does all the work so that the client doesn't have to worry about anything other than reviewing what the writer creates. People hire ghostwriters when they don't have the time, expertise, or desire to write themselves. A great ghostwriter will take their clients' ideas and turn them into a powerful manuscript.
What is my ghostwriting process?
My writing process is designed to give you the best results, to put you in the best place to write the book of your dreams, and to turn your story into a bestseller. Here is an overview of how we will work together. I start by interviewing you and anyone who can shed light on your story. I also review any documents that would be helpful. Then I use my writing skills to turn all of that information into a manuscript. As I am writing that, I send copies of my work to you at regular intervals, typically every week. We discuss what I have written, and I use your input to make the book better. After I have turned all the information I collected into one manuscript, we work through that until we are satisifed that your book is ready for publishing. There are normally multiple revisions, and we won't stop until we are both happy that the book is finished.
What should you look for when interviewing prospective ghostwriters?
There are many things to consider when hiring a ghostwriter, but the most important thing is experience. Not every freelancer can write a novel length manuscript. A quality ghostwriter with a proven track record of producing high-quality material over an extended period of time will give you the best results. Your ghostwriter has to have worked on similar projects to yours. Someone who has decades of experience in fiction writing might not be the best fit if you need someone to write a business book. The right ghostwriter will understand your target audience and will be able to dedicate enough time on your story to turn it into the great manuscript you deserve. The best ghostwriter will listen to and understand your voice and give you the opportunity for feedback so that the final product sounds like your own book and not something that was created in a vacuum.
When you are ready to create your legacy and impact the world, hire an award-winning freelance ghostwriter to bring your words to life. I am an experienced ghostwriter/professional writer and can help you write your business book, nonfiction book, fiction book, memoir, biography, company history, or screenplay. I have over twenty years of experience writing, editing, and public speaking. You and I will take your idea and turn it into a compelling, vibrant story.
