What is Ghostwriting?
Ghostwriting is not something a ghostwriter does alone. It is a collaborative process in which somebody with an idea to share or a story to tell partners with a writing professional to help them communicate their message. The ghostwriter and the author work together in a creative partnership that is tailored to fit the author's needs. The aim of the process is to use the ghost's writing skills as a tool to breathe life into the author's message. Good ghostwriting ensures that the ghost fades into the background and becomes invisible while the author's story stands out on the page in a way that is true to their own voice.
Professional writers are not the only people in the world who have something worthwhile to say! No one should have to keep a good idea or story bottled up just because they haven't spent a few thousand hours honing their writing chops or because they don't have the time to write. By matching your story with the writing skills that can make it come alive, you can ensure that it reaches the audience it deserves.
What is a Book Coach?
Assistance from Start to Finish
A book coach collaborates with an author to help them develop and write their own book. The coach provides a comprehensive suite of editing services and advice to help shape the manuscript and give it the polish it needs to be ready for publication. These services include structural advice, close reading and comment, and line editing with an eye to the demands of the reading public. They can also include the solving of particular problems, such as help with writer's block or reducing a text to a length that fits the requirements of the market. Regardless of the services required, the end result will be a polished manuscript that can be pitched to agents and publishers.
