The Benefits of Hiring a Ghostwriter for Your Book
Have you always dreamed of writing a book, but never seemed to find the time to do it? Do you have the idea, marketing skills, and vision, but lack the writing ability? If this is you, then hiring a ghostwriter might be the solution you need.
A ghostwriter is someone who will do the actual writing for you, yet who forgoes all the copyrights to the work in exchange for payment. So the ghost does the writing, and your name goes on the book cover as the author. Consider the following benefits of finding a ghostwriter for your book.
Your Book Is Written in Your Voice
One benefit of hiring a ghostwriter is that he or she will know how to adapt the writing to your voice. The writer will spend a lot of time with you preparing to write, and during this time he will get a feel for your voice, temperament, and style.
The project is collaborative, so you can be sure that your thoughts and feelings are expressed accurately on the written page. In fact, because you will spend so much time talking with your ghostwriter, you may find that the finished work sounds more like you than your own writing does!

A Good Ghostwriter Could Help You Get Published
In a non-fiction work, a publisher wants to know two things. First, he wants to know that the author is a well-known expert in the field, which means someone who can be advertised well. Second, he wants to know that the book is well written. A ghostwriter who has earned a reputation for good writing fills in this second criterion.
