Ghostwriting

I work with entrepreneurs and executives from around the world who want to demonstrate thought leadership and expertise through professionally published content.

Hiring a qualified ghostwriter is a good choice if you want to enjoy the benefits of publishing top-quality content, but don’t have the time or inclination to write it yourself. I also work with people whose native language isn’t English (I speak French, Italian, and Spanish, but work with native speakers of other languages as well).

How Ghostwriting Works

A ghostwriting project starts with an in-depth consultation to develop a solid content strategy for your project, based on your specific goals. At this point, there are several ways we can collaborate. I can work from your existing materials, such as published articles or notes from your workshops or speeches. If you don’t have any source material, you can either provide me with written outline notes or I can interview you on the phone.

The Book Collaboration Process

Collaborating with a ghostwriter who is also a published author helps you create a quality book that enhances your professional reputation and stands the best chance of success whether you choose to pursue traditional or independent publishing.

I work with authors who already have a book contract and need a collaborator, are seeking publication with a traditional publisher (I can also work with you on your proposal), or plan to publish independently. I offer custom bids based on your book’s target length and the amount of research required. Please be aware that I don’t offer ghostwriting on spec or for a share of royalties.

A Word About Confidentiality

The ghostwriting process is confidential. Although a few clients have chosen to list me as a co-author (because of my existing publishing history), most prefer to list only their name as the author of the book. During our initial conversation, we discuss confidentiality as well as the need for any non-disclosure agreements (NDAs). After your book is complete, you retain all rights and I won’t list you as a client other than generically (such as “marketing speaker” for example).
