Ghost Writing by Lynne Hackles

0188a87f-0005-4024-954f-c9ec23c8ae66

As Lynne Hackles explains it, ghost writers’ clients appoint them for one of two reasons: either the client doesn’t have the time to write their own book, or they do not have the writing skills. And the clients vary from celebrities (Katie Price has published various autobiographies and novels, ghosted by Rebecca Farnworth) to ordinary people.
 
You are unlikely to find a celebrity as a client, although it could happen, but as a ghost writer, you could certainly build up a client list of ordinary folk – many of whom would probably want you to write their biographies. Lynne Hackles goes on to explain how to find these clients, partly by networking and partly by using the internet.
 
Finding your clients is the start point. You then have to write their books, and Lynne shows how to do all the research and how to structure and write your clients’ material. Her book could open up a whole new market for you.
