A young child at the time of the India/Pakistan partition, his family resettled in Pakistan. With those early years in turmoil, his parents were his teachers. Once the author entered school, his brilliant older brother became a role model. Challenged by his family, the author assumed responsibility for household duties and volunteered for additional tasks. On his father’s advice, Khan became a doctor serving in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and America. From experience gained, he declares it our duty to find out what we are capable of.

Unlike the camera-shy Sasquatch or the Loch Ness Monster, the mysterious creature living in Higley Flow is known to be predatory, and for over a century many people and even ships have disappeared in the area, never to be seen again. The most recent disappearance is that of a young woman by the name of Cass Landau and her pet pug Ruby. While walking through the park grounds, the two of them go missing, leaving almost no trace aside from Ruby’s dog tag. Local amateur historian, community figure, and Boy Scout troop leader Bernard Tyler Binghamton, known by all those around him as either “Bing” or “Uncle Too-tall,” unwittingly becomes involved in the legend himself.

But the depth of the history lesson and the writing eloquence are nothing short of prodigious. The book has two major plots: The tunneling under Lake Erie for fresh water, and the life of Garrett Augustus Morgan, Sr. Either story in itself could make an interesting graphic novel, but entwined, they add depth and sophistication to the novel. There is so much to learn while reading and "watching" a comic book.

Dabber is a young conductor in the bus industry in Bristol who faces tough working conditions due to insufficient workers. Without enough people to run the buses, routes have to be canceled, and buses are abandoned in alleys, stranding people around the city. Dabber believes that if the Bristol Omnibus Company would just lift their ban on hiring black, Asian, and West Indian people, they would have more than enough people to keep all the buses running. But attitudes are slow to change within his company, despite the mounting pressure coming from the university campus.

Now, on his first day of work, Mark must mark patients who managed to escape with ribbons: red for immediate attention, blue for beyond help, and yellow for less serious. Mark is torn as he feels he is playing God in the decision of who lives or dies. Jenny is treating all the patients she can, and Joseph, on his second day as the hospital chaplain, is administering last rights. None of these remarkable characters have had an easy past, and it comes to haunt them, especially on this disastrous day.

After convincing his friends, all of whom are also past their prime years and billionaires, to join him, the men seek to clone their DNA while retaining their memory. The Reborn Project, as Dalton calls it, is not only morally questionable, but illegal. Still, the men press on, finding a way to take over the financially strapped IMS (The Institute of Medical Science). After a few missteps, John Daltons' reborn operation is a success and his old memory is placed into a younger clone, JD Dalton. But not everyone is happy about the Reborn Project and soon JD must deal with death threats. Legitimizing human cloning won't be as simple as Dalton had once thought.

Then a dedication to the working poor—further evidence that what you are about to read has nothing to do with the public’s seeming obsession with wealth, celebrity, and the glitterati. Recovery, he states, has three parts: physical recovery requires absolute non-use of mood-altering substances; thinking recovery means being truthful with oneself and others; feeling recovery means recouping emotional maturity that is sabotaged when one begins using mood-altering substances. Lastly, the novel itself—far from a screed or polemic, more an homage to humanity with the realization that the effort is the truly important part, regardless of the outcome. Mc Causland offers warning signs of potential relapse—deceptive thoughts, for example, like “I owe this one to me” or “Sobriety is boring.” The author states that addiction is known as a primary, chronic, progressive, and fatal disease. He presents the concept of “unmanageability” to prompt the addict to acknowledge that substance abuse has endangered physical and emotional health, destroyed self-respect, damaged family relationships, and imperiled work or school prospects. He suggests healthy ways to deal with anger, anxiety, and self-pity that arise in the recovery process and advises developing a positive social network.

Chapters such as “Desire and Fear,” “Human Nature,” “Society,” “Truth,” “Harmony,” “Simplicity,” and “Wisdom” are filled with one or two sentences for each axiom. The strength of the book lies in the chapters on nature, aloneness, peace, and enlightenment, for they offer significant wisdom. At any point, the reader can pick up the book and read any axiom, any page, or any chapter to help along the path toward happiness. Examples of the axioms include: “Alone is all-one, a peaceful, tranquil, quiet answer to life” and “To fear you will be feared; to hate you will be hated; to love you will be loved.” ...

This time, the topic he is all over is murder Down Under in the teeming metropolis of Melbourne, Australia, sometime in the not-too-distant past. Good guys and bad guys collide in this tale of muscles and mayhem that includes cunning Chinese gangs, murdering mafiosos, foxy femme fatales, and lawmen and women who have to battle the system as well as the scofflaws.

Each chapter breaks down the method and the theory, explaining through both first-hand experience and science as well as through drawn illustrations and photographs by the authors and fans of the previous two editions who followed the steps to create their own beautiful ovens. While creating an oven can sound like a complex endeavor, the authors provide simple, fun directions that can enable anyone to soon begin baking beautiful loaves of fresh bread or hot pizzas ready in just a matter of minutes. With sections on history and troubleshooting potential oven problems, this is the only resource required to create a beautiful and functional work of art that can feed a whole community.

In 2007, the author, on the verge of homelessness after losing his job during the economic downturn, prayed for guidance and gradually recalled his long-ago Nigerian childhood. He provides a rare glimpse into daily life in a West African country where as a boy he excelled on his exams each year, always striving for first place. When two electrical engineers from the US visited his class, making a simple demonstration of how electricity produces light, the boy was so enthralled that he yelled out twice, “I want to be an electrical engineer! ” His family was so poor it seemed unlikely he would even go to high school, but with high grades and obvious determination, he attracted teachers and then employers who helped him move up. He achieved a college-level education and became an electrical engineer almost miraculously, overcoming numerous adversities such as a serious illness, resentful workmates, a country at war, and a family torn apart.

Of lesser concern to the city’s daily activity is Saul Imbierowicz, a young Jewish mail sorter who lives a modest, mundane life save for the smoking hot girlfriend he began seeing a week ago. The mysterious Moira flits in and out of Saul’s life without any warning, but Saul is always happy to see her. However, being in the wrong place at the wrong time leads to Moira being gunned down in the aftermath of the Valentine’s Day Massacre. Shortly afterward, Saul draws the attention of Moran, who sends goons to his apartment and forces him to steal evidence in federal agent possession in order to keep his parents and sister safe. Next, the federal agents strongarm Saul into helping them track down Moira, who miraculously and mysteriously is not dead after all, even with Saul watching her bleed out on the street.

But an encounter with an equally damaged girl puts him back into harness, and what seems a routine plagiarism case soon becomes deadly. Plagiarism cases rarely have the sex appeal of a murder, either in real life or in literature. For thriller writers, a murder does the heavy lifting for the suspense, but in skilled hands, such as Autoro Perez-Reverte in People dream of starting over in a place like Eureka, Montana. Californians, soldiers, spies, and victims alike share a taste for small-town, lakefront life, where population is scarce and possibility is vast as the land. Reinvention is an American right and rite, and pursuing it in a hamlet of true Americana holds the potential for happiness.

She learned that her father’s mother was living far away in Argentina, and the family had not seen her in many years because of the distance. Her mother’s mother had passed away long before Jennie Bella was born. But since all her friends talked about their grandmas and all the fun things they did together, Jennie Bella began making up stories about her own grandma and all the exciting adventures they had. Everyone could see how happy Jennie Bella was to talk about her grandma, so they did not discourage her. When Jennie Bella wanted to actually talk to her grandma, her mother called her friend who told Jennie Bella stories and pretended to be her grandma. Jennie Bella even got to meet her in person and sing Happy Birthday to her. This made her very happy and helped preserve her innocent nature.

Jamie is determined to endure Nick’s deployment and await his return, but her world unravels with the tragic news that Tony has been killed in battle, and Nick is pronounced Missing in Action.

She blames herself for her mother’s death from diphtheria which Sophie had first. Her actor father, Nicholas, leaves her with his sister and brother-in-law, unable to cope with single fatherhood. Nine years later, however, Nicholas reaches out to Sophie to make amends and rebuild his family, renting a house and desiring to raise the teenage Sophie to adulthood. Nicholas introduces Sophie to the theater, where she flourishes thanks to the tutelage of the company’s actors and the affectionate generosity of its manager, Richard Neville. Even though Sophie achieves her dreams, her life is still fraught with the dramas of nineteenth-century English life—from balls and suitors to birthrights and nationalism. Despite it all, Sophie falls in love with her handsome co-star Ian, but there is something about Ian that causes Nicholas plenty of cause for alarm.

The land is exquisite with a beautiful pond, an orchard with fruit and nut trees, and an abundance of gorgeous wildlife. Once she returns to Hinderland, she dreams of purchasing the land and beginning a new community to aid her people with jobs, food, and security. Before she can do so, however, her father goes missing. Now Queen Rachel must find her father, create a way to help all her subjects who are hungry or without jobs, and purchase Homeland Dell to start a new community—all while falling in love. Many years later, the property of Homeland Dell is still a community with Queen Rachel's descendants: the cousins Rachel Dee and Rachel Lee. They are both just like their ancestor, forming fundraisers, saving the jobs of the residents, and helping the youth of the community. (read more) back to top Promoting a simple game that promises to improve your inner psychic abilities, this book is targeted toward those who believe in the importance of intuition in personal development. Quintana has devised playing cards, twelve in number, with color as the identifier for each. She describes in vivid terms the symbolic significance of each color: blue represents communications, unity, truth; yellow is for radiance, mentality, purification; purple relates to vision, command, and healing. Each color is also paired with a chakra, or energy field, within the body. To play the game, one person is designated the sender, and one or more people are receivers (it is recommended to trade these roles from time to time). The sender focuses on a card, centering thoughts energetically on his/her feelings about its color; the receiver strives to “see” the color by communicating mentally with the sender. (read more) back to top Does altering a natural human function cause more harm than good? Quintana states that over time the percentage of rightly matched answers will increase as one’s intuitive powers are exercised. This is what readers will question as they follow David Neale's journey after a science experiment gone wrong, an experiment that was supposed to help women decrease their gestation period. Reporter Mary Murphy of the Alexandria, Virginia newspaper, comes across a crime scene on the way home that changes her involvement in a new case. As two dead babies are pulled from a dumpster behind a restaurant, the minds of citizens in Alexandria begin to race. The story picks up speed and the attention of surrounding areas. Soon, police are looking for those who may have been involved. (read more) back to top , Patrick O’Donnell and Charles Gaylor have a retired detective, frustrated by years of obviously-guilty killers escaping justice because there is not enough evidence for a prosecution, turn judge, jury and executioner. Relying on his skills as a veteran police officer, the protagonist successfully murders the criminals without any tangible evidence, until a slip-up alerts his son-in-law protégé to his mentor’s activities. As a result, the younger cop must choose between familial and professional loyalty and loyalty to Constitutional procedures. The result is a conflicted tale of justice and conscience versus due process and individual rights. (read more) back to top Most of us take what we learn from history books at face value. But history has many angles and aspects, and in condensing it into a single historical tome, much is lost or simply overlooked. The author was not content accepting the official story behind his family's history, and the result is this well-researched book. Calloway’s biographical odyssey takes a deep dive into the history of a single half-white slave named Aaron Calloway who lived in the late 1800s. The book explores not only this one man’s path through life but also how that life affected the lives of his children all the way down to the present day. Calloway uses historical records to track his family tree beginning with Aaron and then all the way down to the author's grandfather, Arthur Calloway.

When it turns out to be a lonely box turtle, Justin pleads with his mom to keep the turtle as his pet. Eventually, she agrees, and they bring his new friend home. But the turtle does not respond to Justin’s efforts to keep him happy, neither poking his head out of his shell nor eating the worms that Justin gives him. Sad that his friend is unhappy, Justin, gradually realizing that the turtle prefers the freedom of the woods to the captivity of Justin’s home, lets him go.

Humans were like beasts of disaster; if they were not stopped soon, they would soon have nothing to fight for." Young Loot lives in an age of Vikings, where kings rule, war is commonplace, and dragons roam the earth. As the son of a king, Loot is beloved by everyone—that is until it is revealed that he is actually a rescued orphan of low birth. Suddenly, everyone he thought dear begins to shun him. Loot flees, only to find himself face-to-face with a young dragon. Without a second thought, Loot sacrifices his life to save the dragon. Moved by this act of selflessness, the other dragons rescue Loot and bestow upon him great power: immortality and the ability to communicate with dragons. The dragons have been looking for a kind yet courageous soul to carry their power and bring peace to the world once again. Is Loot the key to saving humans and restoring peace in the world? (read more) back to top The mechanics of the Christian faith are examined by author/preacher Buleni. Using quotations from the Holy Bible to support her views, she recounts personal experiences that underpin her own strongly held convictions. She describes faith in Jesus Christ as follows: once you accept him, you will have a new life, be seated with Christ, and be able to act with his authority. Though you are human and will always have earthly tendencies, God’s grace makes life easier. God—infinite, self-sufficient and all-powerful—acts through the Holy Spirit to do miracles and bestow gifts. These gifts include wisdom, healing, prophecy, and discerning of spirits. Her own gift came not from her early religious life but through a powerful “baptism in the Holy Ghost” that gave her the joy and the voice to preach and testify. A later portion of the book illustrates faith by contrasting “what you usually say” with what God would say. For example, you might say, “I am too tired now”; God says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” ...

While there, he happens upon the Brynleith vineyard, where he takes a tour, has a little too much wine, and finds himself experiencing unexpected feelings. The Leith family is keen to take care of him in his inebriation, and the beautiful grounds, easy lifestyle, and familial care call him back. Once there again, he finds two jobs, friendship, and even a love in his life. But the events of his nightmarish past haunt him as clearly as the grotesque scars on his forearms, and if Daniel can’t learn to escape those demons, this faraway oasis of peace that he discovers will fade away as well. (read more) back to top The poems contained in this collection are designed to challenge the reader’s expectations, causing them to look at the world around them in a new way. There are tales of ghosts and tragic murders but also of rough characters with hearts of gold on the inside, so that early on the reader learns not to trust their first impression of a person or situation. As the poems go by, the author also opens up to provide some personal opinions on American politics and respect for the members of the various branches of the military. Not always written to end happily or to come across in a straightforward manner, each poem compels readers to learn to see things from both sides.

Numerous memoirs have already emerged from such information, but this book will rate at the top as a fascinating royal secret that is both meticulously researched and elegantly written. She frequently comes to school with a stomachache (due to not eating breakfast), dirty hair, and unwashed and wrinkled clothes. (read more) back to top When people think of major female characters of the Bible, they generally think of Ruth, Sarah, and, of course, Mary. Authors as well as sisters, Dettmann and Stevens make a convincing case that they truly are the great-great-grandchildren of a Prussian prince and his beloved "secret bride." Quotes and photographs documenting various events in gazettes, recovered personal letters, and other written documents help lend credence to this fascinating family history of Russian royalty. One of the lesser known females to merit a story in the Bible is Tamar, a princess of Palestine. (read more) back to top The author states he is amazed at the attention people give to their natural lives—fully knowing they will end in a cemetery—but do not prepare for a life that continues afterward. Her story is not long, getting a total of three mentions. This book was sparked by Piper’s determination to make sure that no one will be unprepared for eternal life. He systematically explains what the Bible says about this subject, taking time to define Christian vernacular for those to whom it is unfamiliar. He organizes short chapters in this book into five general sections about growth―from a newborn Christian to a road-weary pilgrim still pursuing grace and knowledge. The book begins with the reader acknowledging the need for rescue along with samples from the author’s story illustrating the steps this entails. It ends with weightier issues, like how we should respond to the Lord’s gracious invitation. (read more) back to top To promote knowledge of prophecies and visions received over the years by holy individuals, clerics, mystics, and nuns as well as laypersons, the author records this book of last warnings. The collection is meant to inform Catholics and others of impending danger for those living on earth in the days of 2017 through 2029. Visions and recorded experiences included also verify the accuracy of church dogma such as the existence of a real Devil, the reality of Hell, and the value of prayer and study to eternal rewards. Three actual stories from Russia and Rome record warnings from those recently deceased whose apparitions appeared to someone well-known prior to death. Occurring in the 1800s, the time of each ghastly apparition could only be verified once official word of demise was received from a distance. Warnings by the lady at Fatima are well known in this century. Others included in the book are less known: a French mystic who was outspoken against changes inside the church, and a third-order Dominican nun who taught about the fulfillment of the Lord’s Prayer in coming days.

He has a keen interest in sailboats and works to support his hobby, but his grades in school begin to suffer. His father makes him quit his job, and Ted decides to leave home and live with his grandparents in the country to avoid problems at home. Ted soon realizes how poverty is affecting his grandma and grandpa, so he begins to plan ways to make money by plowing fields, mowing local cemeteries, or even busking as a street performer in the various towns in his part of the country with his friend Woody and his dog Spot. As Ted adapts quickly to country life, he learns how to thrive by being a hard worker and always looking for a lucrative opportunity. (read more) back to top Classic fairytale stories last through the ages due to the iconic heroes and villains who tell not only a story but teach an implicit moral lesson to the young reader. Wilson’s book is in a similar vein to these tales with a hero named Tamar who needs to defeat the Dark Lord, save the princess, and free the land from the Dark Lord’s grip. However, nothing is as easy as it seems, and despite the friends who rally behind Tamar’s cause, nothing comes without a hefty price. Tamar’s story follows the hero’s journey as he hastens to save his bride-to-be, only to be captured by the Dark Lord and descend into a hell that seems inescapable. With the help of friends and a couple of mentors (the father of the princess and a witch), he rises against the setback to overcome the Dark Lord himself.

Sibling rivalry prompted the first chip-on-the-shoulder attitude which she has successfully resisted ever since. Her marriage to the brother of a coworker was failing even before their wedding day, and they lived separate lives in the same house. But Christine refused to give up and prove her parent’s prediction right. That’s when she got Mojo, a Labrador puppy who she would spend fourteen years with—much longer than her marriage or any other relationship. However, Mojo may have been the unlikely source of her Multiple Sclerosis. As a pathologist assistant, she learned that some people develop a version of MS in reaction to the live canine distemper virus. Adapting to this disease with cane, walker, and miracles along the way, nothing has stopped Christine from a productive life of working, traveling, and living alone. (read more) back to top Because the author’s parents were in fact parental teachers, his first thought was to pursue teaching as a career. However, the prophetic words of Graber’s school teacher hinted at a different future. This memoir begins with those early years when he taught at the Navajo reservation in Arizona. On several occasions as a school teacher, he had to act as both health provider and ambulance. The needless loss of an Indian baby’s life was due to having no doctor nearby. The mark left by this experience likely influenced his decision to change his life plans and accept the call to become a physician.

As she juggles motherhood, a marriage, life as an artist, and her own emotional struggles, Hynes dedicates each essay to a single topic, exploring her innermost and vulnerable thoughts on a subject and typically including a work or two of abstract art created by her to accompany each selection.

Book Reviews - The US Review of Books Professional Book. Ghostwriters are the unsung heroes behind thousands of bestselling books — from celebrity autobiographies to business books and even works of fiction. If you have an important story to tell, but don’t possess the writing skills (or the time) to put it down on paper, you can hire a ghostwriter to write that book for you. Ghostwriters are rarely the official “author” of the book, though they are sometimes mentioned as a “co-author” in a book’s Acknowledgments. Some ghostwriters prefer the term "collaborator" as they see the project as a partnership with the author. More often than not, however, they are bound by confidentiality clauses that prevents them from revealing which books they have ghostwritten. But where can you find that dream ghostwriter, who’ll be able to capture your voice and tell your story the exact way you want it told? Some ghostwriters will also accept unfinished manuscripts, and work with the author to write the missing parts. Such a job usually requires a mix of developmental editing (to restructure the book) and ghostwriting, and can be just as time-consuming for the ghostwriter as writing the book from the outset. First, you should be looking for someone familiar with the subject of your book, and who is willing to spend the time to get to know your vision for the project. You also need to find someone whose personality gels with yours, and whose style appeals to you. Get a sense both of their writing style (by reading what they’ve written already) and of their personality (by arranging face-to-face interviews when possible). Communication is absolutely key when reaching out to prospective ghostwriters, to ensure you make the best decision for your book. It is important that you feel completely safe from the get-go, and ready to entrust the ghostwriter with the inner secrets of your story. Choose someone you’re confident will do your story justice. Once you’re set on a ghostwriter, there are several ways to start the collaboration. The most common one is to sit down with them (figuratively, or in real life), and have them record your story. Andrew Crofts, one of the ghostwriters on Reedsy, gives a good idea of what the process should look like: “In an ideal world you will spend a few days recording before the ghost goes away to write the first draft. You will meet up again, tell them if they are going wrong and put right anything that they have misunderstood, or that you forgot to tell them at the first meetings. They will then produce a final version.” In reality, the process can of course be longer, and require more back-and-forth before you get to this final version. You can also ask your ghostwriter to share the chapters with you as they write them — though that should be made clear from the start. In the end, it’s all about keeping an open and honest communication to make sure you are both on the same line. Like all of the professionals on the marketplace, Reedsy ghostwriters have been carefully hand-picked by our staff from thousands of applicants. We have done all the background checks for you to ensure the ghostwriters on our website are veteran professionals with an established reputation. They are used to working with publishers, agents, and first-time authors alike, so they will be able to help guide you through the entire process. Confidentiality: All standard ghostwriting contracts contain a non-disclosure agreement, preventing the ghostwriter from revealing any information about the book and contract to any third party. Copyright: The contract should attribute all intellectual property of the ghostwritten book to you (usually pending full payment), unless you intend to make the ghostwriter a “co-author” of the book. Payment and royalties: When commissioned by publishers or agents, ghostwriters are often remunerated through a fixed fee and a percentage of future royalties from book sales. If you’re an independent author however, it will be nearly impossible to convince a professional ghostwriter to work with you on a royalty-share model (unless you’re a celebrity of course). Termination clause: Ghostwriting projects can be complex, and don’t always go exactly according to plan. A ghostwriting contract will usually include a provision for more work, as well as a termination clause with a “kill fee” should you decide to part ways. The US Review of Books is a leading book review publication and website. We are a leading book review site, often visited for professional book reviews examples.

On January 15, 2009, geese struck and disabled the engines of US Airways Flight 1549, forcing captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger to perform an emergency landing on the Hudson River. The smooth landing resulted in no casualties and remarkable pictures of the passengers and crew waiting on the plane’s wings in front of the Manhattan skyline. The “Miracle on the Hudson” received heavy media coverage that lifted Sullenberger to American hero status. Writers like Zaslow represent an open secret in book publishing and any industry that involves content with a byline: that the title of ‘author’ is often more of an executive position rather than an indication of who wrote the words on the page. Dictionaries an “author” as either “a person who has written something” or “a person who starts or creates something, such as a plan or idea.” Readers assume the first, while publishers understand that it’s the second. In academia, professors come up with research ideas and analyze results, but research assistants and graduate students write the actual paper describing the outcome. Business executives drive the direction of projects but leave underlings to research and write reports that bear the executives’ names. Marketplaces called content mills allow companies to cheaply fill their websites with ghostwritten articles published under the name of a staff member. And nearly every book authored by a celebrity or politician is ghostwritten by a professional writer. In book publishing, ghostwriters are no longer complete secrets. Many receive a byline and the more dignified title of contributor or even co-author. Investigating how the industry works, it’s hard to tell whether ghostwriting is becoming more common or just slightly more transparent. Many writers have worried that publishers’ search for profits will lead them to denigrate all writers to ghostwriting status and embrace anything attached to a celebrity. Readers don’t seem ready to give up their romanticized view of authors anytime soon. Many celebrities see dollar signs in book publishing. Authors receive an advance when they sign a book deal—essentially a guarantee on the expected royalties from book sales. Hillary Clinton received an But money is not the only reason famous people decide to “write” books. They can be a public relations strategy—a chance for a someone to boost her profile, tell her side of a controversy, or express a more rounded personality than the one described by the media. Peter Osnos, who has edited or published the memoirs of two former presidents, explains that while money is a factor, retiring public servants “generally have a full life of experience that they want to share.” This may or may not mean justifying their actions in office. In the case of politicians and business executives, the primary motivation for writing a book is often to demonstrate expertise. Hillary Clinton likely wrote about her time as Secretary of State in the service of her 2016 presidential run. Writers at the next level have some book experience that earns them ,000 to ,000. These ghostwriters sign nondisclosure agreements promising to never reveal that they worked on the book. Only scrupulously honest clients thank the ghostwriter for his or her “valuable contribution” in the book’s acknowledgements. Excellent ghostwriters—who may have even written or ghostwritten a bestselling book—earn ,000 to ,000 per project. A small elite with a track record of handling multi-million dollar memoirs command from ,000 to more than a million. They may also receive a share of the royalties and writing credit. , the autobiography of American car magnate Lee Iacocca, earns anywhere from 10% to 50% of the advance. Top ghostwriters like Novak are given titles like “co-author” or “collaborator” and have their name on the cover. The publisher of George Stephanopoulos's memoir Authors literally entrust ghostwriters with his or her life story, so the two usually meet to check for rapport before signing a contract. But with top ghostwriters, the client is also auditioning. Beyond monetary considerations, Novak cites the agreeableness of the client, his feeling that he can add value, and the book’s potential as important considerations. “Everyone thinks they have a book in them,” says Novak. I’ve turned down a few clients whose stories I didn’t think could fill a book.” says. “Each interview took an hour.” The entire project still took four months, and some ghostwritten books take a year of full-time work. But this means that ghostwriters can often write multiple books a year. Writing someone’s autobiography can also be surprisingly impersonal. When William Novak ghostwrote his first memoir, he assumed that he would be Lee Iacocca's “surrogate son.” He discovered that the norm is less than 50 hours of interviews. The process starts with the author providing written materials like speeches they have given. Reticent authors only do phone calls and email; the feverishly busy fly the ghostwriter around the world to meet in airports or between board meetings. For major projects, ghostwriters interview as many as several dozen people who know the author. Once the ghostwriter has a draft, the two make adjustments over email and phone calls. her “autobiography.”) But the author usually has an intended message and knows the narrative or major arguments. “Every now and then we have an author who doesn’t have a lot of content, and we do additional research, and the ghostwriter goes above and beyond,” says Jerrold Jenkins of the It’s the ghostwriter’s job to ask probing questions that capture that narrative—but not to question the narrative. For most ghostwriters and publishers, part of the ghostwriter’s professionalism is understanding and accepting that she is writing someone else’s story. As William Novak tells us, “It took me awhile to understand that I am writing a book about how [the client] sees him or herself. I represent what they remember, their views.” Ghostwriter Sally Collings describes the industry as very niche, with writers specializing in areas like business memoir or American history. But publishers seek out elite ghostwriters for any project. Publisher Peter Osnos has Novak as a talented ghostwriter because he “is the equivalent of a great character actor—someone who has the ability to subsume his own character, no matter how interesting the part that he's playing.”As the majority of ghostwriters sign nondisclosure agreements, it’s impossible to know exactly how many books are ghostwritten each year. The president of Arbor Books, which furnishes ghostwriters, tells us, “From what I’ve seen, I’d imagine a billion dollar industry.” The president of a similar firm estimates that at least 25% of the Celebrities are also paying for a higher quality of writing than they could ever achieve. Every year, dozens of books are authored by celebrities, politicians, and business executives who haven’t written anything much longer than an email since college. Most publishers will push a celebrity or politician who actually wants to write his or her own book toward a ghostwriter. Books written by celebrities usually end up in the hands of an “editor” who rewrites the entire manuscript. From a publisher’s perspective, securing the rights to publish a celebrity’s book is the closest thing to a sure thing in book publishing. This is important because, like television executives and venture capitalists, book publishers are in the hits business. Each Publishers do work with young talents in the hopes that they’ll develop into the next Stephen King or Malcolm Gladwell. But especially in nonfiction, publishers prefer authors with a “platform”: a history of successful books and recognition in their field. When an author pitches a book project to a publisher, the marketing strategy and the author’s ability to sell the book is as important as the story. Many agents even suggest that authors without a “strong platform” reconsider trying to publish a book. Publishers want authors with name recognition and the ability to sell their own book because selling a book by a new author—even if it’s a great book—is so uncertain. Rowling released a mystery novel In contrast, selling a book authored by a celebrity is easy. Since it is difficult for people to know whether they will like a book, customers buy the same authors again and again. “There’s certainly a high correlation between fame or infamy and commercial success,” says Novak. “And I’ve made a living off that correlation.” Publishers may love the combination of a celebrity’s name and a ghostwriter’s professionalism, but writers and readers do not. He sees them as representative of an industry focused solely on entertainment without a thought for education. One writer we contacted who collaborates on nonfiction projects described ghostwriting as “repulsive.” in 1997, lamented ghostwritten books about figures like O. “One of the first books I worked on, the author said, ‘I don’t want to work with a ghostwriter. Like I can’t string a sentence together,’” Collings says. “He was a brain surgeon.”The practice appears especially dishonest when it comes to ghostwriting fiction. Joel Hochman of Arbor Books estimates that 35% of his publishing services business is for fiction. “It’s like a Hollywood producer with a concept putting together a team to produce something,” he says. “Their satisfaction comes from being the originator of the idea even if many changes are made.” Arbor Books A number of bestselling authors, such as James Patterson and Tom Clancy, have even treated their name as a brand by passing off the concept for their next sequel to a ghostwriter. Or been kept alive in the literary world after their death by ghostwriters. , and he is credited with being the first to give American children what they want: not books of moral instruction disguised as stories, but mystery novels as full of excitement and adventure as the adult , a series about the adventures of three prankster brothers who attend a military academy. Rather than settle into a quiet life of writing mystery novels, however, Stratemeyer sought to build a children’s book empire.. He wrote under pseudonyms so that he could sell his series to different publishers without diluting his brand, and when he could no longer write all the stories himself, Stratemeyer simply hired ghostwriters. Stratemeyer would send off a synopsis to a ghostwriter and receive a manuscript several months later. To better manage his ghostwriters, Stratemeyer developed a clear format for each book with rules like ending each chapter with a cliffhanger. slowed when the characters got married, Stratemeyer decided that characters should never age. For promotion purposes, each book started with a recap of prior books and ended with a preview of the next one. Stratemeyer also learned to release the first three books of a series at the same time to test its commercial viability. , and a number of successful adult authors have done the same. Recent thrillers by Tom Clancy, for example, have the name of a “co-author” on the cover. Similarly, author James Patterson has released as many as six books a year. “ a novelist to ghostwrite a fictional book that takes place in the fashion world and then cited supermodel Naomi Campbell as the author. Campbell did not collaborate with the ghostwriter, Caroline Upcher, who said of the project, "The idea was to buy the name." These examples could represent a future in which publishers buy celebrity names to attach to ghostwritten books the same way the fashion industry promotes clothing (dreamed up by anonymous designers) under the name of a celebrity. Or a future in which ghostwriters toil away on formulaic concepts sold under a brand name. Hiring ghostwriters and drafting nondisclosure agreements can certainly feel deceitful. But there is a case to be made that people should give up their romanticized views of authorship and accept its benefits.“I think the idea of an isolated writer drinking whiskey in a garret and not coming out until he’s finished a book is a notion that doesn’t exist anymore,” says Joel Hochman of Arbor Books. Along with several executives, he responded to our question of what is owed to the readers by putting a name on the cover by saying, “It’s a product.” These publishers point out that writing is always a team effort. Jay Leno does not write his own jokes, and teams of writers work on sitcom scripts. Every book author depends on the help of an editor whose impact on the book—cutting large sections, reorganizing, suggesting plot changes—can be substantial. Researchers are also a regular part of writing a book in both fiction and nonfiction. Ghostwriting may be an extreme case, but every book is a team effort, and few writers are responsible for every single word and idea in their books. Is it more deceitful to name someone who did none of the writing an author? Or to give so much credit to the author in the first place? A major benefit of ghostwriting is that it allows stories to be told that would otherwise be told poorly or not at all. Few major public figures could write books themselves. Even if the existence of multiple Justin Bieber memoirs does not feel like a service to the publishing world, it at least subsidizes the publishers taking a chance on the next David Mitchell or Donna Tartt. It is also an open question whether ghostwriting denigrates writers or celebrates their skill. Nondisclosure agreements are not a sign of respect. But established ghostwriters are recognized as skilled professionals. And while journalists are often asked to write at below a living wage, ghostwriting can be one of the few ways to make a good salary writing full-time. William Novak describes himself as “spoiled” by all the “wonderful people [he’s] worked with.” Michael D’Orso, who dislikes the term ghostwriter but collaborates with major figures, how “you can’t be more alive than when you’re climbing into other lives in other worlds.” Sally Collings says that ghostwriting allows her to focus on the writing and editing part that she enjoys without having to deal with the marketing aspects that she does not. Whether called ghostwriting or not, the idea is certainly not new. Mark Twain, who edited and published the memoir of Ulysses S. Grant, is said to have ghostwritten much of it as well. Hired hands have crafted busy leaders’ correspondence and public remarks for centuries. And we’d be hard pressed to say when science and engineering professors last wrote the majority of their papers. But as far as we can tell, the size of the industry is stable at the top but has surged at the bottom. The demand for ghostwriting has increased simply because more content is being produced. With the advent of the Internet, businesses and blogs seeking content to draw eyeballs has led to the rise of “content mills” where ghostwriters work for anywhere from and Amazon—has led to new entrants into publishing. Jerrold Jenkins, president of a publishing services firm, told us that since the late 1980s, the share of books published every year by smaller, independent presses and self-publishers has increased from 10% to 80%. And with this increase in production, the number of ghostwritten works has increased. Many of these books do not intend to turn a profit. “Books have become a new toy,” says one industry insider. “Instead of buying a Lamborghini, you have a book produced.” Other people want private books written for the benefit of friends and family. Executives may have a book ghostwritten in order to be introduced as “the author of…” For companies, a book is essentially a sophisticated brochure. Insiders in the ghostwriting industry, however, don’t believe that ghostwriting is on the rise among major publishers. Karl Weber, who has been on both the writing and editing/publishing side, says that “It’s hard to say whether more people are using ghostwriters these days or whether the practice has simply ‘come out of the closet.’”Karl Weber explains. "Rock memoirs were generally viewed as ho-hum until 2010 when Keith Richard's LIFE became a critical and popular smash. And since then, memoirs by other sixties rock icons have been considered hot properties."We praise Obama’s speeches rather than his speechwriters, and we debate how funny late night hosts even though we know that writing rooms are responsible for their jokes. But when it comes to books, we’re angry when we discover someone behind the curtain. that publishing houses’ increasing demands that writers market themselves will lead to all authors either becoming celebrities or being replaced by them. But the way readers and publishing houses treat ghostwriting shows that this fear is misguided. Ghostwriting firms we spoke with insisted that a book is just a product—and a team effort that makes images of isolated writers seem outdated. But there still are writers who refuse to own a phone and emerge with a new work unexpectedly. And they produce the most celebrated books that a formulaic approach could never produce. There’s also a reason ghostwriting firms consider nondisclosure agreements standard. They know that readers don’t want the illusion to be ruined. Even William Novak, who publishers brag about getting to ghostwrite a memoir, is expected to stay quietly out of the way when his books come out. It seems fitting that the formulaic approach of ghostwritten stories developed by Edward Stratemeyer has mostly failed to spread beyond children’s books. Readers are too attached to their romanticized view of writers. Studies book review professional. writers sites for mba custom book review ghostwriting site. vitae ghostwriting website usa best.
Best book review editing services Kirkus only selects editors who have worked on books published by the top publishers in the United States. We define the “top publishers” as the big five (Penguin Random House, Hachette, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, and Harper Collins); award-winning independent presses, such as Graywolf, Kensington, and Abrams; or otherwise notable genre publishers, such as Harlequin. Kirkus’ editors are held to the industry’s highest standards and have proven track records of maintaining consistent quality. An editor must prove his or her ability to provide thoughtful, productive feedback; show exceptional attention to detail; and exhibit expert knowledge of The Chicago Manual of Style, the style guide used by all major U. We ensure that our standards are met by assigning an experienced production editor to review all work before it is returned to the author. After completing your order and uploading your manuscript, you will be automatically redirected to a personalized author dashboard, where you will be able to track your project step by step through the editorial process. When your editorial work is complete, you will receive an email notification with a link to your author dashboard, where you will be able to download your editor’s feedback and the edited manuscript. If you order Collaborative Editing or the Professional Editing Package, you will also receive instructions on how to schedule the one-hour consulting session with your editor. Compare Services For more than 80 years, Kirkus has been a leader in editorial excellence in the publishing industry. Now we have developed a book editing division to offer unpublished and self-published authors access to the publishing industry’s top editors. We’re dedicated to making it simple for an author to get insightful, useful feedback, notes and corrections from the same editors who work on books published by the likes of Knopf, Viking, Simon & Schuster, Tor and Farrar, Straus and Giroux. For a quick overview of all editing packages: We accept only Microsoft Word (or .docx) files. Please do not include any content you do not wish to be edited as part of the manuscript. (For example, if you want to share your bio with the editor as background information, please upload it as a separate file rather than adding it to the end of your manuscript.) The following style settings are used frequently in the industry and make the manuscript easier to review: Kirkus does not believe in censorship and will accept most manuscripts, including erotica and controversial political tomes. We do, however, respect our editors’ preferences, and may decline a project if we are unable to find an editor willing to review sensitive material. Additionally, we reserve the right to decline a project if the content contains hate speech. Per Merriam-Webster’s, “hate speech” is defined as “speech that is intended to insult, offend, or intimidate a person because of some trait (such as race, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability).” This site is secure for credit card payments, and we prefer to process orders online to support an efficient workflow process. Kirkus Editorial focuses on editing services, and we do not currently offer design services. Because formatting specifications can vary among self-publishing platforms, we do not apply e-book formatting or create design elements such as tables/charts, book covers, etcetera. If you have questions about our program and have not yet placed an order, please call 888-407-4474. Once you have placed your order, you will be provided an email address to reach our staff editor with any questions about the status of your project. Additionally, if you order Collaborative Editing or the Professional Editing Package, you will have the opportunity to set up a one-hour consulting session with the editor who worked on the collaborative edit of your book after the edited manuscript and feedback are returned. A member of the Kirkus Editorial staff will be available to discuss any details of your project if questions arise after the session; however, you will not have continued direct contact with the editor. The one-hour session is designed to give you ample time to discuss the project and ask high-level questions about your work, but in order to maintain a competitive fee schedule that authors can afford and to protect our editors’ ability to meet deadlines, we do not allow direct correspondence with editors beyond the consulting session. It is important to note, however, that a member of the Kirkus Editorial staff will be available to answer questions before, during, and after your project is completed. We do guarantee that it will be returned to you with great improvements, and that our work adheres to the book industry’s highest standards, including following the Chicago Manual of Style on all matters of grammar and style. Virtually all books published by the major houses go through multiple rounds of editing for a few reasons. Collaborative editors are looking at the text as a reader or agent would: Is this a good story? Does the author have to address any high-level issues with style or voice? Copy editors, on the other hand, are ace grammarians and are looking at the text line by line from a technical standpoint: Is the writing comprehensible and free of typos? Are capitalization and similar style components consistent throughout, so as not to confuse or distract the reader? Though a few can do it all, many editors specialize in one type of editing. Second, additional editing is a must anytime significant revisions are made, as rewriting will inevitably introduce new errors. Some of the titles you see on the shelves went through multiple rounds of developmental and copyediting before the authors and publishers were satisfied with the finished work. To ensure that your book can compete with the best books published by the major houses, we encourage independent authors to follow the publishers’ lead and put your book through at least two full rounds of editing if your budget and time line allow. With three full rounds, our Professional Editing Package gives your manuscript the same thorough treatment best-selling and award-winning books receive. If you order multiple rounds of editing one round at a time, you will pay for Collaborative Editing ( 3 cents per word) first and then for Copyediting (2 cents per word) when you upload the updated version of your manuscript. If you are interested in three rounds of editing to follow the process used by the major publishing houses, you may order the Professional Editing Package ( 6.5 cents per word) now or upgrade to the Professional Editing Package either after round one or after round two and pay only the difference in total cost.
