Ghost Editing

Transform that ethereal spark of an idea into a solid, down-to-earth book  

Are you a creative person with a brilliant idea that you want to share with the world? When you have a rough draft written but aren’t sure you have the time, energy, or capacity to bring the manuscript along to a publishable stage...close your eyes, knock three times, whirl in a circle, snap your fingers, and call on your friendly Ghost Editor, a professional word wrangler, sentence stylist, and text tamer who will mine your mind, develop the idea, and finish the book with you.

Ghost editing has two powerful ancestorsghostwriting and content editingand it inherits the best of both, combining a developmental edit of that early, insubstantial draft with new writing and heavy line editing, all in close collaboration with you, the author, to arrive at a finished manuscript, ready to take the next step toward publication and saving you from having to endure many more rounds of editing and revision.

As a ghost editor, I take that scary first draft and breathe life into it, analyzing what’s there, determining what’s missing, and then consulting with you to devise a plan to complete the book. I ask you an otherworldly number of questionsby email or by phoneto divine your thoughts and ideas and to learn your voice, which we’ll carefully preserve in the text.

 

In the ghost editing process, the original text is developed, new text is written, andwith excellent and honest communicationtogether we produce a stronger manuscript.
