An estimated 80% of business authors use a ghostwriter - a highly-skilled, professional writer to help them put pen to paper. But how do these successful authors find a ghostwriter? More importantly, how do they work with them?
Written by a full-time ghostwriter, How Business Authors Work with Ghostwriters is a best-practice summary of business book collaborations. With illustrative stories, examples from business and publishing, insightful quotes, and helpful hints, this how-to book guides you through the five main elements of working with a ghostwriter. From pointers on preparing yourself beforehand to helping you through what comes afterward, the book takes you through the step-by-step process of engaging in a highly successful book project.
Besides offering a fascinating glimpse into the industry of ghostwriting (did you know The Three Musketeers was ghostwritten?), there are cameo appearances by Ronald Reagan, a U.S. Customs agent, Sir Richard Branson, and Jim Collins, among others. It was created from from the best – and worst – of the author's experience as a business ghostwriter and from comparing notes with other ghostwriters around the world. Whether you want to present your methodology, write about your business experience, highlight your clients’ successes, or have a unique project in mind, How Business Authors Work with Ghostwriters will provide you the foundation you need for a successful collaboration.
