1. What’s the process for working with ghostwriter?
The process starts with an interview to explore your topic, your objectives, and where you are in the development of material. This information will determine how much assistance you need.
If your project and Maureen’s skills appear to be a fit, she’ll lead you through the interviews or research necessary to create an outline and book chapters. After your responses to an initial draft, you’ll then provide the feedback needed to be sure the message is yours, and told the way you want. When the final manuscript meets your approval, it will go to professional editors for both grammatical and styling corrections. Then, front and end pieces to complete your book (dedication, acknowledgements, author bio, etc.) will be added.
Then, Maureen can format your manuscript into a book ready for publication, both as an ebook and a print book. She can make both available for sale on your behalf on Amazon.com in print and E-book versions. Going forward, all rights and sales management belong to you, so you can promote, market and profit from your book as you choose.
2. How long will the process take?
Most books require 2-3 months, depending on your starting point and how much time you can devote to the project.
3. What kind of time will be required of me?
Time required depends on the complexity of your project. However, clients say Maureen’s sensitivity to the demands on senior leaders’ time has served them well. She’ll be sure interview sessions are focused and will manage the project of your book to fit other demands on your time.
4. Will I finish our work together with a book in hand?
You’ll complete the process with both a print book and an ebook (if you choose) ready for sale on Amazon, and also ready for you to order so you can distribute copies yourself at speaking engagements, or through other channels of your choosing.
