Ghostwriting and co-authoring

What is Ghostwriting?

Does it involve phantoms and apparitions?  Only if you’re featuring them in your writing or channeling your story via a deceased relative.

But seriously…

ghostwriter is there in the background, like a caring parent, helping you form your fabulous ideas into words, while maintaining your style and your voice.   A ghostwriter or what some call a phantom writer, is hired to write books, articles, stories, and reports that can be officially credited to another person, who either doesn’t have the time, skill, or patience to do it on their own.

A co-author, who also falls into this category, differs from a ghostwriter in that he or she shares book cover credit with the main author, but still does all or most of the writing.  Visit a bookstore and peruse the non-fiction aisle. You will observe credits that read “with” or “and” or “as told to” on the cover.  That second name indicates that a writer was brought in to actually write the book based on all the creative ideas, input, and information supplied by the main author, which is the first name on the cover.

Celebrities, executives, political leaders, scientists, or anyone who has something imperative to say, but doesn’t have the time or skill to do it, will often hire a ghostwriter or co-author to draft  their stories, books, magazine articles, blogs, or other material.
