Ghostwriting

Successful people stay busy slaying in their areas of expertise. They don’t have time or energy to take on a whole new focus, and why should they? That’s why the best of the best—from presidents and captains of industry to pro athletes and pop divas—hire ghostwriters. A ghost has the right training and experience to harvest those ideas and stories, then transplant them from your brain to the published page. The basic process is tailored to your individual needs:

  • Compile and organize existing content (notes, journal entries, letters, etc.)
  • Identify your target readership
  • Conduct interviews to draw out stories, ideas, and buried information
  • Refine your message
  • Create a logical, fluid outline
  • Generate a first draft that clearly expresses your thoughts
  • Revise content into a polished draft that showcases your unique voice

Ghostwriting relationships typically last from 6-12 months. Packages can be customized to include consultation on production, publication, and platform/marketing options.
