There are three distinct phases to getting your book DONE.
Spoiler: Only one of them is actually "writing."
You can't really outsource the pre-writing. This is the big ideas and purpose - the core of your brand. This is what your brain is full of, what you want to share with the world, the sparks that make you love what you do!
The good news is that most people have already DONE this work. If you've been a key note speaker, taught a workshop/course, or coached people, you've already done this part! This is the perfect time to get in touch with a ghostwriter, because you can outsource the rest!
This is the fingers on the keyboard phase. You have to spend many many many hours with your fingers on a keyboard. Sound awful? Outsource it. When I write for my clients, THEY are the author because THEY are the genius!
To me, the part of it where the book goes onto the page is more like speaking a foreign a language. I take your genius and translate it into a book format!
This includes editing (multiple rounds), proofreading, formatting the page, cover design, uploading and writing book descriptions, etc. This part is fun to watch unfold, but tedious to manage (and kinda overwhelming for the first few books LOL). Luckily I've done it many times and can take care of it for my ghostwriting clients.
I go into more details in the video below.
