You’ve wanted to write a book for years but despite putting it on your lengthy to-do list at the beginning of every year, it somehow falls off the end.
You know that writing your book makes sense. You want to share your knowledge and experience with many more people than you can reach one to one; you want to inspire and motivate people all over the world; you know the ROI in terms of raised credibility and profile is worth it but you just can’t get it done.
There are a lot of options available to you – a good book coach can help you write your own book in as little as 3 to 4 months. If that doesn’t work for you then a ghostwriter might be the perfect alternative to get your book out there.
What is a ghostwriter?
A ghostwriter is a professional writer who will write on your behalf. It is your content, knowledge and information pulled together into a book with your voice, name and the copyrights are yours. A ghostwriter’s role in writing your book is confidential.
What are the advantages?
This is the most important advantage. If you hire a ghostwriter your book will get finished. That is what they do – they write books. If you need electrics fixed in your office you get an electrician. If you need help with digital marketing you get an expert in digital marketing to do the job. Writing a book is no different – if you want your book written then get a professional ghostwriter on the job.
Many people take years to write their books and even more take years not to write their books. A ghostwriter can have your book draft ready for editing, formatting and publishing in 3 to 4 months. You can take longer if you would like to but if you want your book finished fast then that is what we are good at.
Professional people have limited time – whether they are CEOs of a company or running their own business. Planning and making their book happen will take months, perhaps years.
Most professionals are perfectly capable of writing well however are they used to writing for a captive audience. We spend our days writing for audiences who must read our missives – whether they are board members, department heads or stakeholders. However, people don’t have to read your book. Are you able to write in an accessible and readable style? Are you able to communicate with people on their level and ensure that the language you are used to using in your professional life isn’t excluding them from understanding what you are saying?
There is no question that you can learn to write like that, with practice. The question is do you have time to learn that right now?
How long will it take you to adapt your writing style? How much do you ‘cost’ per hour and is that a good use of your valuable time? Or is it better to get someone who knows how, who can adapt their tone and use your voice for your readers?
Ghostwriters aren’t cheap – like you they’ve spent many years developing their expertise. However, if it takes them 3 – 4 months to draft your book ready for editing and it will take you 12 months to do the same – then it’s a no brainer. It will save you money. Your time is money.
Does someone else write your blogs, articles or social media? If so, do you realistically have time to write an entire book?
Learning to write a book is not rocket science – you run businesses, companies, divisions – you can do it. There is a huge amount of information out there on how to get started, how to structure your book, setting and meeting writing goals, keeping your writing readable and accessible to broader audiences.
Do you have time to do that right now? Ghostwriters know how to write books – it’s what they do.
Your ghostwriter will know what needs to happen and when. They will know how much content you will need to provide them with. They know how long it will take for them to draft that content and how long you will need to review it. They are the ‘project managers’ of the process – so your role is to simply to provide the content and review it as it is drafted.
Writing a book can be an isolating experience, especially if you don’t have access to others who have already written theirs. A ghostwriter is someone you can bounce ideas around with, they can help you achieve your vision for your book and show you how to structure your content.
It’s a collaborative process so at no point will you feel as though you are on your own with the book writing process.
