A note to those considering working with a Ghostwriter
Writing a book with the assistance of a Certified Ghostwriter definitely requires preparation. You need to come with a clear vision for your book, a level of organization, financial resources, temporal resources, dedication, and willingness to commit to completing your book project. Writing a book with a Certified Ghostwriter is like going on safari in a foreign land, with an expert guide who does all the heavy lifting for you. It is going to be an intimate journey of discovery, and you need to be prepared to complete the journey.
One of our fine ghostwriting colleagues created this excellent set of important questions to answer, to see if you are ready to hire your ghostwriter. If you can answer all of these questions affirmatively, then you may in fact be ready.
Here are a few more questions to ask yourself.
At Write Stuff Resources, we believe every book contains one. Where is yours? Is it obvious and clear to everyone who reads your manuscript, that they are holding a precious gem in their hands? Or is your book still a diamond in the rough? We can honestly tell you which it is.
Whether you’ve been laboring over your manuscript for years, or it’s still just a twinkle in your eye — how will you know when it’s ready? How will you know when it is truly as good as it can possibly be?
Is your book great? Because that is our business at Write Stuff Resources — turning good into great.
Do you know what makes your book so different from all the others like it? Do you know exactly who is going to buy it? Do you know how people will find it?
Does your book flow from beginning to end? Is it clear and focused for the reader? For the right reader? Do you even know who your readers are? Have you stepped back and considered who will find this gem of yours the most valuable, and have you written or edited with them clearly in mind? How many times have you re-written and edited your manuscript? Is your book ready to send to an agent or publisher, or ready to be self-published? How do you known when it’s ready?
