You have been thinking to yourself lately, I need a ghostwriter. But, do you? If you have a book that you’ve been working on for years unsuccessfully, maybe you do. You have a great idea, the conception is thrilling and the plot is compelling. You are sure there is a market for your book once it’s completed. But how to go about finishing it – how can you truly find someone to work on your precious book?

I NEED A GHOSTWRITER has become your daily litany. But, do you need one?
You got started without thinking I need a ghostwriter. You planned on creating the book manuscript by yourself, without any help. Maybe you thought somebody would proofread the final copy. But you got bogged down, and couldn’t work things out. You need a second set of eyes to go over your work. Possibly you also need a professional to tell you what is wrong so far with what you’ve written, too.
A professional book editor or ghost writer will go over your work with you. He or she will suggest any needed changes, such as developmental editing to bring out the subtle nuances of your characterizations. Or content editing, to bring in plot twists, spine-tingling scene changes, and a bang-up beginning and end to your novel. In the case of nonfiction, an editor is usually needed to run fact checking and make sure all your i’s are dotted and all your t’s are crossed. When you’re thinking: I need a ghostwriter, in fact what you may need is a book editor. They run less than ghost writers, and if you have a partially completed manuscript that may be all you need.
If you’re starting from scratch, you’re right in thinking I need a ghostwriter.
If your ideas are in springboard form, you will need someone to help flesh them out. This is accomplished through a multi-stage process. The manuscript ghost writer may help you complete a book outline and a book timeline, for example. The outline will lay out in one page all the significant events in your book. The timeline will lay things out in chronological order, no matter how they occur in the book. You will use the book outline and timeline as background materials to help you work on your manuscript.
They key points to your decision that “I need a ghostwriter” are time, expertise, talent and knowledge of the book marketing and publishing industries.
