What is a Ghostwriter?

Behind nearly every successful entrepreneurial or individual achievement is someone who helped make a goal or dream a reality. Whether it is a partner, co-owner, manager, coach, co-pilot or supportive spouse, you’ll find someone instrumental in everyone’s triumphs. They are usually the recipient of thanks at awards banquets or presentations.

A ghostwriter is often the driving force behind a successful author. He or she crafts the author’s concepts, ideas and stories into a cohesive package while never losing the author’s voice.

The author – ghostwriter relationship is very unique. It can be productive, constructive, enjoyable, enlightening and even therapeutic (except there is an end in sight :-). It is a collaborative process that typically encompasses just a few hours a week. After all, the job of a ghostwriter is also to free up the author to go about his or her life.

After authoring books under my own name for nearly 15-years, I began ghostwriting about ten years ago. Since then, I have worked with, many wonderful individuals with a myriad of stories to tell. They’ve written books for a variety of reasons. Some people want to share their passion and expertise with the world. Others want to market and brand their business and attract new customers. Many people want to share their stories to educate, inspire and motivate others. There are also public speakers who want to sell their books at speaking engagements.

There are many reasons to write a book. I’d love to hear your reasons.

The New York Times wrote that “81% of Americans feel they have a book in them”

Sadly, most people never write it. If I can help you, as a ghostwriter, editor or coach, reach that goal of becoming a published author, I’d be honored to do so. Please contact me at rsmz@optonline.net.
