A high level of personalized service is guaranteed always.

The difference lies only in the details.

ghostwriting

  • From first call to finished manuscript . . .
  • The process of ghostwriting a book has four main components: interviews, other research, writing, feedback & revision.
  • * INTERVIEWS: with you to learn your story (memoir) or to gain the information and understanding necessary to convey your expertise. If it’s useful, I also interview other people (family members, leadership team, colleagues, etc.) to gain details and depth.
  • * OTHER RESEARCH: I do whatever research is necessary to gain a detailed picture and understanding of the story or the subject matter. This can include reading press releases, newspaper or magazine articles, research papers, corporate documents; looking up the weather on a particular day in a particular time and place; Google Image and Google Street View searches; Wayback Machine searches; reading or researching in books; listening to your speeches/presentations; watching videos; looking up governmental records; and of course countless other types of internet and print research.
  • * WRITING: I sift through the huge volume of material to understand it, absorb it, and see the best way to structure the story or the information to be presented. I look for themes and groupings, narrative thread, logical flow, and other aspects of a well-written book. And I write.
  • * FEEDBACK & REVISION: I revise the manuscript according to your feedback and the feedback of beta readers.
  • Then the manuscript is ready for the next phase: editorial feedback, design, proofreading and publication!
