Lutz, FL (PRWEB) September 2, 2008
Although a common business practice, the art of ghostwriting - writing under someone else's name and giving up all claim to fame - is still shrouded in mystery. Why do people do it? How do people do it? How can you find one? All of these questions and more are answered in the new book by UK copywriter and ghostwriter, Julie-Ann Amos, "The Secret World of Ghostwriters."
Divided into 29 chapters, "The Secret World of Ghostwriters" covers everything from describing what a ghostwriter does to how to set about finding a good one, as well as looking at the taboo topics that should be avoided, the legal and ethical concerns of the profession and pretty much everything in between.
The book provides a comprehensive guide to this veiled profession written by someone who can certainly claim to be an expert. Julie-Ann's company produces over 100 books a year for clients all over the world, on a wide variety of topics.
The book is published at Amazon via BookSurge, and to demonstrate how easy it is nowadays to get a book from an idea into a reality, Julie-Ann has elected to have the book illustrated with cartoons, copy edited, and print formatted entirely by members of the company, who even also designed the cover.
The book is aimed at anyone who is either thinking about becoming a ghostwriter or who would like to use the services of a ghostwriter but doesn't know enough about it. Written throughout in an informative yet easy-to-read style, it provides an in-depth and entertaining guide to the industry.
Julie-Ann Amos, who runs her international ghostwriting business, http://www.ExquisiteWriting.com from a quiet forest location in the backwoods of the UK said, "It's amazing how ill-informed people are about this work. With this book, I hope to shed a little light on the profession, providing as much advice as possible for those people who are interested in working with a ghostwriter, maybe becoming one, using one or simply curious about the work we do."
Readers of "The Secret World of Ghostwriters" say Amos is right on the mark.
"There is nothing ghostly about this book," said Gail Leonard. "It's a down-to-earth useful practical guide that doesn't deal with the ethereal. It only deals with the facts of the ghostwriting business."
Fellow reader Mardi Winder-Adams agrees.
"Far from just a boring old textbook, Julie-Ann Amos uses humor, real world examples as well as scenarios from her extensive writing career to illustrate exactly how to go about determining which writer is the best match for your writing project, no matter what it may be."
