Ghostwriting for Thought Leaders

I’m a ghostwriter for business thought leaders who have something to say.

If you’re like many business leaders, you’re articulate and engaging in person — but writing your thoughts may be a chore. Or, you may simply not have time. But even with the advent of YouTube and audio podcasts, the written word is still queen — and there’s nothing more authoritative than having literally written the book on your subject of expertise.

A book is your calling card. It can lead to speaking engagements, networking opportunities, new consulting clients, job opportunities…. The possibilities are huge.

But you already know all this, which is why you’re searching for a ghostwriter.

What kinds of clients do I work with?

I work with anyone — from independent business consultants to CEOs of firms — who has a story to tell. Some are looking for help in getting their message out in the world in order to grow their businesses. Some are looking for a tangible way to show the trails they’ve been blazing throughout their careers.

My clients are:

  • innovative
  • thoughtful
  • passionate
  • forward-thinking
  • creative
  • brilliant

If that sounds like you, let’s talk.

What’s it like to work with me?

As a ghostwriter, I take the time to truly understand my clients and their ideas. That can mean hours on my end reading clients’ past work to get a feel for their voices, along with as many phone interviews and conversations as it takes to understand the project.

I view ghostwriting as a creative collaboration. Through targeted interview questions and conversations I help you draw your ideas out, then I hone them into a powerful argument throughout the writing process.

Your ideas are brilliant.

Let’s make them shine.

Developmental Editing for Book Manuscripts

  • Do you have a draft of your book that’s 90% there?
  • Have you been collecting thoughts for years, but aren’t sure how to make them flow?
  • Are you close to submitting your book to agents and publishers, but you’d like a final set of eyes?

I offer developmental editing services for thought leadership books to help bring your ideas to life.

What’s developmental editing?

Have you ever read a nonfiction book that seemed choppy or disjointed? Maybe the argument jumped around, or the flow was hard to follow.

That author could have benefited from developmental editing.

It’s a specialized sort of “big picture” editing meant to help you organize your ideas and perfect the flow of your argument. Unlike copyediting or line editing, which put the final polish on your words, developmental editing happens at an earlier stage, and puts the final polish on your book’s flow.

Who needs a developmental editor?

A developmental editor can come in handy if:

  • You’re not sure what to write next.
  • You’re finished with the manuscript, but it seems disjointed.
  • You don’t know if your book makes your point clearly.
  • You think your book might be too short – or too long.
  • You want to be 100% confident that your book will reach your target audience.
  • You want a better chance at landing an agent or a book deal.
