When you call a ghostwriter, there’s no need to invent or re-invent the writing wheel! You can get your book or blog posts to your readers and keep doing what you do best.
When you decide to call a ghostwriter, I recommend a writer with colleagues to get the complete package coordinated.
How Does Ghostwriting Work?
As your ghostwriter, I will work with your information to help you gather ideas together. You and your readers will benefit. You have great things to tell them, but little time or interest in the actual keyboarding! That’s fine because I do like to organize material and format it all for the readers.
Ghostwriting has nothing to do with spooky ghosts. There’s nothing sneaky. I’m an information organizer, plain and simple. I work with your thoughts and ideas, using your ‘voice’ to compose blog posts or your entire books. Under the best process, we will communicate on a regular basis to accumulate content. Using ‘interview’ meetings, I can get a better picture of what you have to say and the way you would say it.
I am training for ghostwriting through Nick Pavlidis’s Ghostwriters School. Extra inspiration and training are mine at Hope*Writers. Additionally, Following a protocol in our working together lets us be effective and efficient. I have trained further through Freelance Writers Den. Join Freelance Writers Den
Your Story — Your Confidentiality
You may not want your readers to know these production facts. Or perhaps you do want to tell all. Too much information can be distracting. How much information will be entirely your privilege.
Strict confidentiality is my priority when working with your ideas and story. Because of that commitment to confidentiality, you will have to read posts like this. Or posts on my blogs, Cardinal Bluff Reviews and The Legacy Gardens to get a picture of my writing ability. Get a quick look at Cardinal Bluff Reviews and The Legacy Gardens
I publish information about the posts on other resources when appropriate. Publishing on LinkedIn, Medium and Patreon are some of these resources. They are closer to literary resources than severe information. There was a time when articles had to pass a review process to achieve display online. The resources I use are more accommodating.
Ghostwriters didn’t begin yesterday
Authors who produce blog posts or books have worked with ghostwriters for a long time. According to a post at The Writers For Hire, Inc, blog, the term ‘ghostwriter’ was first used in 1921. The post, published on November 22, 2019, expands on the ‘truth’ about ghostwriting.
Authors and ‘ghosts’ have long understood that it is just WRONG to force the actual writing on one person. There was a time on earth when more people had stories to tell than there were people with charcoal to write. Those with the charcoal had to practice integrity because the true readers were few as well. Today, honorable ghostwriters practice that same integrity to keep the story true. Keeping that story an accurate reflection of the person with the idea is only fair.
When two heads can work on a publication, efficiency and effectiveness increase. When authors call a ghostwriter, it is easier to have dynamic components such as
- editing for readability
- graphics or illustrations
- book covers
The Little Things Do Matter
As a ghostwriter, I am a single person office. I do not have a team at present to provide complete service. I do have colleagues who complete the coordination circle for great posts or books. You can learn more about me and Bar JD on the About Bar JD page.
I’ve read some stories with great potential had there been more editing. Editing goes beyond reading clarity. There are aspects of the market that good editing will enhance. Editing keeps your story from presenting as if written by a committee of space aliens.
I have trouble respecting writing loaded with typos or poor grammar. A careful proofreader will find these ‘ickies’ plus catch missing pieces. Or confused pieces.
A picture is worth a thousand words. That picture can be a photo, a graphic, a chart or other illustration.
Readers WILL judge your book by its cover! When we had paper jackets on cloth bound books, they served until we loved the book. Today, books often have a permanent, illustrated cover, whether paperback or hardcover. Fabio belongs on some covers, but not on others! Cover promises that are kept within the covers make for a happier reader.
