My name is Jay North, and I am a professional writer who works from my home office in beautiful Ojai, California. Over the course of my career, I have learned the ins and outs of the industry, from writing and editing to marketing my clients’ self-published novels and everything in between.
I have now decided to create a blog to share my thoughts with all of you, and provide insight into the types of services I offer.
What is Ghostwriting?
A ghostwriter is a skilled professional writer who provides contracted work for another writer, whether in part or in fully, who will publish your work under their name. Ghostwriters receive some or no credit.
Most “autobiographies” by major celebrities have actually been ghostwritten, and many other novels, both fiction and non-fiction, are credited to someone other than the official author.
What are the Benefits of Hiring a Ghostwriter?
There are many reasons why someone might decide to hire a ghostwriter. You might not have the time to get all your ideas out. You might have a fascinating life story that you think would be marketable but you aren’t a writer yourself. You might simply need help with a specific chapter of your novel, or with plotting your story, or with structuring the outline.
If you have an idea for a novel but no idea how to go about creating it, consider seeking out a qualified ghostwriter to help you through the process. Most ghostwriters have a specific niche that they are known for, such as mystery novels or memoirs, but others are willing to do research along with the writing, typically for a higher rate.
As a professional writer with many years of experience in ghostwriting scripts, novels, articles, and blogs, I can help you bring your story to life, or simply breathe new life into a story that feels like it might be missing something.
