Actor Ewan McGregor plays “The Ghost Writer” in the upcoming new film of the same name, but to most people, the world of ghostwriting is a complete mystery. Yet “Almost half of the non-fiction books published by traditional publishers today use a ghostwriter or book doctor,” according to Mahesh Grossman, ghostwriting guru and author of “Write a Book Without Lifting a Finger: How to Hire a Ghostwriter Even if You are on a Shoestring Budget” (10 Finger Press, 2nd Edition updated and revised for 2010, ISBN: 978-1-933174-98-3, Price: $17.95).

"Anyone who can talk can become the author of a book," asserts Grossman, who has been interviewed on over one hundred radio and television shows worldwide, including Fox and Friends on the Fox News Channel. “For most people, the real secret to getting published is to employ a ghostwriter to do the writing for you.”

In his book, Grossman dispels some of the biggest misconceptions future authors may have about ghostwriters. “The number one myth is that you have to be a politician or a celebrity to be able to afford to hire a ghostwriter,” says Grossman who provides detailed information in his book that anyone can use to find a good ghostwriter, judge their work and evaluate their compensation, regardless of their budget.

“There’s nothing like a published book for establishing your credibility in your industry,” says Grossman. “The Internet allows many people to share their ‘expertise,’ but unless you become very famous, it doesn’t carry the same weight as being the author of a book you can actually hold in your hands.”

“Write a Book Without Lifting a Finger” explains why even a gifted author can benefit from working with a ghostwriter. The new book teaches future authors how to assess whether a ghostwriter will be beneficial, how to choose the right ghostwriter for your budget, why a test phase is very important, how to negotiate the writing deal and what to expect from your collaborator.

Grossman shares these tips to hiring a ghostwriter and what to avoid:

-“If you’re writing a book to establish yourself as a thought leader in your field and to land new clients or customers, your best bet is to find someone who has written books published by major publishers in your topic area, if you can afford it (costs can be $25,000-$45,000).

-For more affordable ghostwriters, visit writersmarket.com to find editors who write about your topic for magazines to see if they might be interested in working on your book. Or ask for referrals to freelance writers they have worked with. You can hire someone to write a book proposal to help you get a publishing deal for as little as $500.

-Make sure there’s chemistry between you and the writer; they have to understand you and your area of expertise.

-Always check their references. Make sure they turn in polished work and meet deadlines. Having a test phase is mandatory: hire your ghostwriter to write one chapter before proceeding.

-Avoid hiring a professor or English teacher or someone who’s never been published. Their writing often winds up sounding like a term paper instead of a book.

-Be sure to make yourself available enough for the ghostwriter to get the information they need.

Grossman will discuss “How to Hire a Ghostwriter and 7 Other Secrets to Getting Published” at Vroman’s Bookstore, 695 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA, on May 3 at 7:30 pm PT.
