TELLING YOUR STORY JUST GOT A LOT EASIER
“If you produce one book, you will have done something wonderful in your life”
— Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
If you have a book you want to write, or a book you have already written, you will find there are more options in today’s publishing world than ever before. Many people aren’t aware of all the resources that we now have available to help them realize their writing ambitions, whether on the personal or corporate level. Many intelligent, successful professionals in various fields simply don’t possess the skills to bring a book to fruition on their own. That is where we can help as ghostwriters. We can turn your personal story into a compelling autobiography. Or we can paint a vivid portrait using your own words to distinguish your business enterprise, your scientific research, your legal or political experience, or your motivational coaching techniques.
Not everyone who has written the first draft of a book knows how to edit and polish a manuscript for publication or for sale to publishers. That is where we can help as book doctors. We can evaluate your manuscript and suggest ways that we can help you revise, edit, and polish it as necessary for publication. These are all areas where we have expertise and established credentials in the publishing world.
With over twenty years of professional experience and many fine books to my credit, I know that successful books depend on my working closely with each aspiring author who comes to me as a client. I have a skilled team that assists me to ensure that my clients’ published books are beautifully written and designed inside and out. For those authors who wish to publish their books independently, as a corporate or personal venture, my company also offers full public relations support, with marketing, promotion, and social media campaigns. All of our clients’ books are made available in print (and as eBooks) on Amazon and related websites, as well as marketed to retail outlets, including bookstores, libraries and wholesalers.
For those aspiring authors who prefer to submit their books to commercial publishing houses, my team and I provide the experience and know-how to help them find the right literary agent for their books. We have established relationships with a number of reputable agents based in Manhattan, Los Angeles and London for representation on our projects. We can also write book proposals according to trade standards for submission to the most demanding and prestigious publishing houses.
My longtime collaborator, Greg Lawrence, is a bestselling author in the arts and a memoirist, who was mentored by his first editor, Jacqueline Onassis. Greg has published nonfiction books with a number of the “Big Five” publishers, including Doubleday, Simon & Schuster, Putnam-Penguin, and St. Martin’s Press. Excerpts from his books have also been featured in Vanity Fair. Greg and I have worked together in tandem with our in-house creative team on a number of special projects geared for the trade publishing houses and also entrepreneurial author/publishers.
If you have a story you want to tell and a book to pursue, Ghostbooksters can be your one-stop professional writing, publishing and marketing service. We can help you make your authorship and/or branding dreams come true.
