Christina Hamlett joins host Craig Price to discuss professional ghostwriting. Christina has written over 30 books, 152 stage plays, 5 optioned featured films, hundreds of articles and interviews in her own name but she is also an accomplished ghostwriter. But you might not know that since ghostwriters live behind the scenes, forgoing credit in order to serve their clients. Christina and Craig talk about when you should seek out a ghostwriter, what to expect when you write a book with another person and how to let go of control of your own story to better serve the writing. She also talks about why you should even write a book and relays stories of petty revenge, delusions of grandeur as well as what makes a good potential client as well as the benefits ghostwriters offer to busy or people with an undeveloped skill for the written word (that’s polite speak for “You suck at writing so don’t do it!!”). They also talk about what a ghostwriter does and doesn’t do (it’s kind of an important distinction), as well as the differences between a ghostwriter, a collaborator and an editor.If you’re thinking of writing your own book or hiring a ghostwriter to do it for you, Christina is worth a listen…preferably before you start your next written masterpiece!
