You need a book.
It’s that simple. You NEED a book… but not just any book. You need a book that affirms your authority, that expresses the unique perspective and approach you bring to your subject, and the value that you deliver.
My first question to you is:
Do you have the experience and skills to write a book that does justice to yourself and your subject and that will resonate with your target market?
I’m not trying to be insulting. I’ve worked with many people who are dynamic speakers and true experts in their field, have a unique approach that delivers proven results and years of experience who struggle to coalesce their ideas into an engaging book.
The skills needed to write clear reports, effective proposals, and deliver inspiring speeches are not the same as those needed to write your authority book in a timely fashion.
“Writing a book is hard work. It’s NOT like other forms of writing.”
It’s not really about the word-count. Most people can write thirty-thousand, fifty-thousand, eighty-thousand words if they put their mind to it, but this won’t make a persuasive book. A structural template will help speed up the process, but, like any template, it has its limitations and it’s not enough to make your book the unique reflection of your personality and ideas that you need to create the kind of influence and legacy you are seeking.
The right ghostwriter may be your best solution… but not always.
That’s why I created the report above. I’m not just here to sell my ghostwriting services. My goal is to help you find the most effective solution to write a book that you’ll be proud to promote… One that will serve you for years to come.
Am I the ghostwriter you want to work with?
That’s a mutual decision neither of us is ready to make right now.
What is a Ghostwriter?
A ghostwriter is a writer who works behind the scenes with leaders, influencers, and people with a story to tell. Their contribution is often not formally acknowledged, and (unlike a co-author) they rarely have their names on the front cover. They help you…
- Clarify the purpose and content of your book (which is often different from the book you thought you’d write)
- Get your thoughts, ideas, and frameworks out of your head and onto paper from interviews, questions, and other materials
- Structure those thoughts, ideas, and frameworks into a book-form that encapsulates the message you want to deliver in a persuasive fashion
- Prepare your manuscript for publication (either through self-publishing or via a traditional publisher)
Do I need to tell people my book has been written by a ghostwriter?
Some of my clients are open about the fact that their book was written with the help of a ghostwriter, others are not. There are professional or personal reasons for the latter. At the end of the project it is your book, not mine and along the way I will offer suggestions and recommendations (along with the reasons behind them), but the final decisions are always yours.
My Other Ghostwriting Clients Include: –
- 5 New York Times Bestselling books with a current count of more than 28 weeks on the list
- A key international figure in the personal development training space who needed a history of their speciality complete with the latest research and innovations
- An executive from a major Australian publicly listed company who wanted to build his personal brand
- CEO of an International Agency for the development of youth leadership in the Pacific who wanted to tell the story of their work
- I have also worked with orthodontists, dentists, a range of alternative health professionals (chiropractor, physiotherapist, Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, nutritionist), authors, coaches and speakers.
Why Choose Me?
The only reason to choose a particular ghostwriter is because you trust them to communicate your passion, personality, and message and you believe they can set their own ego aside and do that in your voice, not theirs.
I’m a passionate believer in the power of books as vehicles for ideas and the inspirers and creators of dreams. I’ve seen them change people’s lives and provide hope and direction and I love helping aspiring authors get their message out of their head, and onto paper.
When I’m working on a manuscript, I throw myself right into it. I feel your passion for the subject, share the pain of those you are speaking to, and the joy of the solution. I need to know that you believe wholeheartedly in your message because I will take it on board, too.
My degrees are in English Literature, Research, and History. I spent over twenty years teaching and evaluating students in classical & english literature, poetry & prose writing, ancient history, psychology, and logic, while writing extensively. I’ve written, edited, and contributed to over 20 books and more ebooks than I can count for others, and published fiction under a pen name. I also understand how to sell a book and how to create a platform that will not only spread your message, but also attract the interest of traditional publishers if you choose to follow that path. Five of my authors have spent over 34 weeks on the New York Times bestselling list and I’m a major contributor to that success.
Why Not Choose Me?
There are a couple of reasons you might not want to choose me, and because time is a non-renewable resource I’ll list them here: –
- Your specialty is finance, investing, economics, technology, or applied science. Trust me, there are more qualified candidates out there to write your book.
- You are afraid that if you explain your ideas clearly in your book you’ll be giving away your IP. You can’t write a book without content and while there is nothing new under the sun, your perspective is unique so no matter how explicitly you share your message no-one else can steal it.
- You don’t want to ‘sell’ your services or your message. This suggests that you don’t believe that your message has real value and can change the lives of your readers so I’m probably not the right ghostwriter for you.
- You want your book finished yesterday. Writing an authority book is like having a baby. It takes time and effort to create something unique and effective that you will be proud of. There is usually at least a two month waiting period and your manuscript will take from four to ten months to complete.
- You have an extremely limited budget. I love quality books which do justice to the power of their message and the author’s personality and passion. I don’t like reading poorly planned, poorly written books that show they were created in a hurry. Budget and time are closely related and your final manuscript represents many hours of thinking, planning, writing, and revising.
Author of a NYT Bestseller (16 weeks on list)
I needed my latest research and teaching to be presented in a book ASAP, but I didn’t have time to write it myself. One of my friends told me how Debra had helped him write her book in a similar situation.
She was the perfect ghost-writer for my purpose: confidential, efficient, fast, and – best-of-all – she managed to copy my style and stay completely invisible!
My Ghostwriting Clients Want…
- Their ideas to be expressed elegantly in their own unique style and voice so that their book and their speaking or consulting encounters are 100% congruent and prospects feel as though they are talking to person they already know, like, and trust.
- A book that is the best possible vehicle for their ideas, methodology, and purposes. They don’t want to borrow someone else’s template because they are confident about the value of their approach.
