An Easier Way to Write a Bestseller
By Marty NemkoThe odds of a non-famous person writing a bestselling book are tiny. There is a way to increase your odds: ghostwrite a book for a famous person. Ask a celebrity if he'd like you to write a book about them. Focus on starting-to-fade stars--they need the PR and an ego boost. Jointly develop a proposal and send it, probably through an agent, to publishing houses. But don't count on fame; that's why they call it ghostwriting. When the book comes out, the star is listed as the author in huge type and your name is, like a ghost, barely visible--if at all. The name of Hillary Clinton's ghostwriter of It Takes a Village, Barbara Feinman, never appeared on the book. Here are two ghostwriter's websites: www.bookwriter.com and www.bookdoctor.com.
