Ghostwriting your book

Hello, I’m Christopher Richards. I specialize in ghostwriting business books for company presidents, entrepreneurs, and consultants.

About You

You’re an expert. You know what you’re doing. You may head up a large multinational company or run your own private enterprise. Either way, you have significant business experience. Now you’re ready to integrate and package your unique value.

You may want to explore new horizons and your book will lay the foundation for your next leap forward. Perhaps you want to tell your corporate history, communicate your vision for the future, address an unmet need, or show your thinking in detail.

If you’re like many of the people I help, you’ve tried to write your book yourself. Now you realize just how much time and effort is involved. Or you may turn to me at the idea or outline stage. Together we can structure your ideas into the book you’ve always wanted.

My job is to make writing your book as easy, painless, and effective as possible. The collaborative ghostwriter-author relationship is flexible and confidential. You can write as much or as little as you choose. If you just want to talk, I’m happy to do all of the writing. On the other hand you may want coaching to help you pull your ideas together.

Effective business writing is aimed at a specific audience. Many first-time authors think in terms of having a book— and there’s an end to it. After all, you want a book. That’s why you’re reading this page. But think about your reader. Who is this person? Why should he or she read your book? What should your readers expect to do after reading it? What value gets communicated?

You may not know all the answers to these questions initially, but they form the basis of our initial discussions. Writing, like business itself, is a developmental process. Collaboration means laboring togetheralthough I expect to do the heavy lifting.

Your book is a significant investment so think about the long-term value to you and your organization. You can find more in the section on ghostwriting.

Completing your book requires focused attention, hard work, and time. You don’t have to do it alone.

You have other things to do.
