Introduction

So you think you want to be a freelance ghostwriter? Perhaps you have some writing experience, or you want to earn extra money. Maybe someone asked you to write a book that they want to publish in their own name, or possibly you heard of this thing called ghostwriting, and you want to give it a try.

Ghostwriting is hard work. It is very creative and fulfilling. However, the energy required to peer into a person’s mind, read their scrapbooks, make sense of their scribbled notes, and turn all of that into a well-written manuscript is intense.

Being a writer does not mean that you have the tools to be a good ghostwriter. Ghostwriting requires a whole different set of skills on top of writing. You’re not creating a book for you; you’re writing a book to satisfy the needs and requirements of another person, company, or group. It is a very different thing.

In this book, you will discover the nuts and bolts of ghostwriting and learn how to successfully turn a client’s idea into a completed manuscript with the following knowledge:

  • How to manage the process of creating a ghostwritten book from start to finish
  • Written and oral communication skills necessary when interacting with your client
  • What you need to do to gain new ghostwriting business
  • How to complete a well-written Statement of Work that defines the type of book to be written and how the project will be managed
  • How to write the book, one chapter at a time, while utilizing interviews and outlines
  • Communicating with your client during the revision process
  • Controlling necessary changes—both minor and dramatic—while keeping your project on track
  • Delivering your completed manuscript

Ghostwriting is a unique form of writing that, although difficult, can be very rewarding on both a financial and emotional level. I hope you get value from this book and enjoy the adventure of extracting a story from someone’s mind and changing it into a completed manuscript.
