Get Known: Hire a Ghostwriter — Celebrities Do

Celebrities do it: you can do it too. If you don’t have the time to write, you can nevertheless “write” articles and books — just hire a ghostwriter.

Ghostwriters write articles, books and speeches for you. Those articles and books are published under your name. This is a common practice. Most books supposedly by celebrities, magnates and politicians are actually written by “ghosts.”

So why would you hire a ghostwriter? If you’re famous, and you get a contract from a major publisher to write a book, you’ll have no choice. The publisher will hire a ghostwriter for you. You’re famous for a reason, and you don’t have time to learn to write — that’s the writer’s job.

Ghostwriters are hired to help others to tell their story, or to share their expertise.

Publishing books and articles helps you to become known and respected in your field. If you’re an academic, there’s pressure to publish. For business people, publication wins respect, and will enhance a CV.

How Do You Work With a Ghostwriter?

It’s a simple process. Your writer knows what’s required to write a book, article or speech, and he’ll interview you, and research, to get the information he needs.

If you’re already under contract to write a book, he’ll speak with your editor, so that he understands exactly what the publishers’ needs are.

Your ghostwriter will interview you. Usually these sessions will be recorded and your writer will take notes as well. The more extensive the material he’s writing, the more sessions you’ll have with him.

Once he feels comfortable with the material, he’ll write an outline. Then he’ll do some additional research, and using the material from your sessions, he’ll write a first draft.

At this stage, you can delete material, and add material too. When you’re happy, your writer writes the final draft.

This may be all that’s required for a speech, or for a magazine article. However, if you’re writing a book, there will be several drafts, and your editor will have input as well.

The thought of hiring a ghostwriter may be strange to you, but it’s a very common practice, and it will help you to get known in your field.
