What is a ghostwriter
I am glad that you asked! A ghostwriter in the loosest sense of the word is someone who writes things like books but another person name is used as the author. For example, if you are a life coach and you wanted to write a book to sell on your website but lacked the time and/or skill to do so then you would hire me to write it for you! I would do the actual writing but your name would be listed as the author.
You have an idea of what you want to write but the thought of writing an actual book makes you want to dry heave all over your Mac. You KNOW that having a book to sell is one of the most profitable ways to get your name out there but every time you sit down to write you freeze up. Or you have written something but you need someone to polish it up so that it looks professional.
That is where I come in. I am passionate about helping people getting stories out into the world. I believe that everyone has a story to tell but that not everyone has the time or skill to do so.
How did I get started writing?
When I was little I used to write “stories” that I would then force my family to read. Later on, I wrote for my high school newspaper and lit magazine then my college newspaper.
People told me that I could not make money writing so I majored in government and then took a soul-sucking job with da man. I was writing in my job alright but it was reports and that was so NOT what I had in mind. To all outward appearances, I had “made it”. I had beaten the generational poverty cycle that almost every central Appalachian has fallen into.
On the inside, I was desperately unhappy. I found solace in writing in my LiveJournal every day. Then I started seeing people “making it” online. It blew my mind wide open.
Some friends asked me to help them write up a website and resumes and the like and one day I was joking and I told a friend he had to pay me 100 dollars to write copy for his website and when he agreed I almost shit my pants. Word spread and I started making actual cold hard cash.
When I realized I could do this and make money. I started saving like a mo-fo and when I had a year’s worth of savings I took the leap and I have never looked back.. And you know what? I am happier than I have ever been!
As word spread I started getting bigger and bigger projects until someone asked me to write a book but under their name. I didn’t even know that was a thing until this person asked. I did it and then I realized I could make a pretty good living writing after all!
I know you have dreams to chase also. If having a book to sell is one of yours Let’s talk!
