Ghostwriter Helps Tell Stories the Author Can't Share on Their Own

Bluffton, SC (October 14, 2010) – Stories make us human. We use them to communicate what we know, and we use them to make sense of our experiences. For those who want to share their stories in writing, but don’t have the time or talent to write successfully on their own, a ghostwriter can make the book a reality.

“A ghostwriter collaborates with the author to develop the book idea and write it in a way that communicates their story and experience effectively,” said Melinda Copp, an experienced ghostwriter who works with nonfiction, self-help, business, and memoir authors. “Many of my clients tried writing their book on their own and haven’t been successful, or they just have no idea where to start and they need someone to help them get it out of their head and organized in a meaningful way.”

Although most people think celebrities are the only ones who use ghostwriters, anyone with the desire to write a book can hire a ghost to help. Some of Copp’s recent projects include a book on nutrition by a holistic doctor, a breast cancer survivor’s memoir, a competitive swimmer’s memoir, and a book about starting a business by two successful entrepreneurs. She has an MFA in creative nonfiction and a BS degree in journalism, and uses her background as a reporter to interview her clients and accurately capture their voice on the page.

“Ghostwriting involves lots of interviewing,” said Copp. “But it’s a fun process that gives me a chance to help aspiring authors share their experiences, which will hopefully help everyone who reads their books.”

Writing Expert Reveals Strategies Self-Employed Professionals Can Use to Grow Business during the Slow Holiday Season

Bluffton, SC (November 24, 2009) -- For service professionals, slow business is a holiday tradition. Clients are vacationing, putting new projects off until the New Year, and too busy with other holiday plans—which, for many self-employed folks, means no new leads and no new sales. To help compensate for this holiday lull, The Writer's Sherpa, LLC, will present a free teleseminar, "Write to Grow Richer; The 7 Secrets of Writing to Sell Your Services," on December 9, 2009, at 8:00 p.m. EST, for freelancers, consultants, and self-employed professionals who want to take advantage of the reduction in client demands by updating and creating new content marketing materials that will help put them ahead 2010.

"Every time I write and publish a new article or give my clients a new special report, I see an immediate response in traffic, leads, and new work," said Melinda Copp, founder and executive editor of The Writer's Sherpa, LLC, who will be hosting the teleseminar. "It's helped me beat feast or famine, and writing new marketing content is the perfect holiday activity because you can squeeze it in anywhere."

The goal of the call is to reveal tips on how to use content marketing to establish expertise, attract new clients, and add additional income streams, such as ebooks, books, and other information products. These content marketing strategies can not only earn additional revenue to any freelance business, but also build relationships with clients and leads that will help keep them loyal in the future.

"If you're a self-employed professional who has heard one or more of your clients or prospects say, 'Let's start this project after the holidays,' then you probably know things will slow down this season," says Copp. "Why not use the time to create new articles, reports, ebooks, and other information products that will give you a jumpstart on next year?"

Anyone looking for ways to build momentum this holiday season, despite the slowdown in client work, can watch a video introduction and sign up for this free call at www.writerssherpaprograms.com/freecall.html . The teleseminar will be recorded, so those who miss the call at the scheduled time will receive a free recording download.

When it comes to writing articles, books, and other marketing pieces, most busy self-employed professionals don’t think they have time to consistently produce new content.

“You don’t need hours upon hours of writing time to be productive – and no matter your intentions, most marketers can’t devote more than an hour to writing on any given day,” said Copp. “The key is to schedule small increments of time, maybe thirty minutes a day, on as many days as you can.”
