Developmental Editing & Manuscript Critique
Of the dozens of published books by my clients, perhaps half of these I’ve ghostwritten. As a result, I neither mention the book title, promote book covers, or share my client’s press. I’m often asked how ghostwriting works. The short answer: ghostwriters may receive higher compensation than a co-author would, and agree to zero visibility. The reader will never know I was there—I’m a ghost.
