Is It Time to Turn That Writing Project Over to a Ghostwriter?

no time to write your book-no problem. (1)

You’ve been telling people about that book you’re writing for a year – or two or three. And you’re starting to panic.

Because in reality, that “book” is more like a collection of random musings, old blog posts and other files on your computer that don’t exactly make sense together…

Or it’s one single, lonely page you’ve started 25 different times, in 25 different ways…but it never comes out right…

Or it’s just an idea you really, seriously intend to flesh out SOMEDAY…as soon as you carve out the time to write 150 or 200 pages…and figure out what’s gonna be on those pages…

SO…how’s that book ever gonna get done?

I have a gentle suggestion.

Maybe you should hire a ghostwriter.

The right ghostwriter (yes, there are “wrong” ghostwriters – but that’s for another time) will take those random musings and half-formed ideas and anything else you might have swirling around in your brain and magically transform them into a coherent, cohesive book that presents them to the world in the best possible way. She (or he) will give your ideas a structure with a beginning, middle and end, work with you to dig deep into your story or “thing” to find the answers to the questions your readers are dying to know, and present it all in a voice that sounds like you on your best day ever.

Does it cost money? Of course (even ghosts gotta eat!). But it could be the best investment you ever make.

If you’re ready to stop telling people about the book you’re going to write, and start showing off the book you wrote, maybe we should talk. click HERE for more info.
