   What is Ghostwriting?

   Everyone might have a story to tell. You might want to transfer the fantastic world in your mind onto pages, or perhaps immortalize your work experiences and life journey. However, writing a book requires education, time, experience, and patience. Not everyone, especially at the start of this journey, may be ready for the demanding work that writing a book entails. In such cases, ghostwriters are educated and experienced professionals who have written many books in their chosen fields and have worked with many people like you. They know how to guide you through this challenging and lengthy journey.

  Ghostwriters are individuals who turn the story in your mind into a novel or transform the knowledge and experience you have gained in your professional life into a book. You can benefit from ghostwriters if you want to turn the life of your elders or your own life into a biography, step ahead of your peers by writing a book about your industry, or if you want to write a novel. People from various sectors like dog trainers, chefs, personal development experts, business people, psychologists, housewives, doctors, dieticians, and website designers can use ghostwriters. Some famous authors known to have used ghostwriters include Alexandre Dumas, the writer of "The Count of Monte Cristo" and "The Three Musketeers," Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, James Patterson, Hilary Clinton, and Stephen Covey, the author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People."


How to Choose a Ghostwriter?

   The most important factors in selecting a ghostwriter are trust and confidentiality. A confidentiality agreement is signed between the ghostwriter and the client, and the ghostwriter keeps all the information obtained during the book writing process to themselves. This agreement also means that the ghostwriter cannot claim any rights to the book. As per the agreement, once the payment is completed, the ghostwriter transfers all rights of the book to the client, allowing them to publish it under their name. These processes are entirely legal, and you can edit, publish, or sell the rights of the text written by a ghostwriter to third parties like film companies and publishing houses as you wish.

    When you sign a contract with a ghostwriter, you should keep in mind that you will be working together for an extended period. Therefore, before getting to the contract process, you can ask the ghostwriter for a trial text. Due to confidentiality agreements, your potential ghostwriter candidate cannot tell you for whom they have written books in the past. Remember, if a person you are discussing with for ghostwriting purposes can easily give you the names of their previous clients and books, they will also comfortably give out your name and your book's details to others in the future.
