13 Ways a Ghostwriter Can Help You Write Your Book

You've got a great idea for a book and are confident it'll be a best-seller. The problem is that you've never considered yourself a decent writer. The words never do the ideas in your head enough justice. You need help with typing, spelling, and grammar, and there's also never time to sit and write. Should you quit while your dignity is intact? Or do you hire a ghostwriter?

The answer is simple: Hire a ghostwriter to help you write your book.

What Is a Ghostwriter?

A ghostwriter is a professional hired to write and materially strengthen your book. They work in collaboration with you, and rather than them taking credit for the work, your name goes down as the author. In exchange, the ghostwriter receives monetary compensation.

Basically, you dream it ... they write it.

While that may seem weird, aspiring novelists, athletes, celebrities, politicians, musicians, business owners, entrepreneurs, and everyday people often collaborate with ghostwriters for books, blogs, speeches, and other written texts. It's one of the best ways to get your scattered ideas into a polished form faster than you might do alone.

Hiring a ghostwriter to help you write your book has numerous benefits:

  • High-quality writing and structure

  • Refine and clarify the ideas in your head

  • Constant collaboration and feedback

  • Enhance readability

  • Content is well-researched, accurate, and credible

  • Save you time and writer's block

  • You get credit for the book

  • Voice and style matching (the book sounds like you wrote it)

  • Keep the project on track

  • Get your book done faster

  • Fewer mistakes slip through the cracks

  • More time to promote your work

  • Increased likelihood of getting published

Hire Your Next Ghostwriter from Edit This!

Edit This is a one-stop shop for all your writing and editing needs, including ghostwriting and editing services. We have passionately collaborated on several book projects that have either already been published or are in the process of being developed.

Our book ghostwriting and editing services run the gamut and include:

  1. Writing your book from scratch – We spend a lot of time sitting with you as you share your story. This allows us to get a feel for who you are, your message, and your style so we can quickly adapt the writing to your voice. The process is collaborative, so don't worry about being cut out. After all, it's your book!

  2. Expand upon existing content – One of our clients is a nurse who writes her novels without concern for grammar. For her, it's the best way to get ideas on paper — even if it's a basic shell. She then relies on us to help her fix grammar, expand content, fix plot holes, create flow, eliminate redundancies, fact-check, create character names and backstories, etc.

  3. Editing services – Sometimes, all a client needs is someone they can trust to look over their finished work from top to bottom, fix anything they may have missed, strengthen their writing, and create a polished book they can be proud of.
