It’s the age of the internet and therefore it goes without saying that it is extremely easy to find help with anything that you want. However if this need is with getting a ghostwriter for you, it is very easy to make a mistake that will cost you dearly, especially if you are newcomer to the world of literature. You really do not want to ire the incorrect candidate to help you out on something as significant as this. If that happens you may have to let go of the project halfway through or just have a final product that has nothing to do with what you initially had in mind. Here are some of the most common mistakes that you can make when you hire a ghostwriter for yourself.
Neglecting to check their publications
Has this ghostwriter you are about to hire ever published anything? Who did the publication? If they are a pro at what they do, they should have at least one publication under their name. If you want your piece to rank among some of the best fiction novels to read, you really need to get this sorted. If a person has not had any publications then just think. If no editor wanted to take them on, why should you risk that? However, on the flip side there could be ghostwriters who are fresh out of graduation and are also highly talented but as they are just done with studies may not have had the time to publish anything.
Not looking for references
You really need to not skip this step. Go to book review sites and see if there are any references and comments on the work that has been done by them. You may have found a ghostwriter online but that does not mean that they are great and they could actually be anybody. Look for as many recommendations as you can get bout them. That is one way of getting things on the right track from the start.
Ghostwriting takes a lot of skill
This is not just writing. This is ghostwriting and it requires a very specific skill. Ideally you should only deal with somebody who has had this experience before. If they do not have this skill set, see if they do have some sort of expertise on interviewing. One more thing that you need to be really careful about it finding somebody with a good personality, who will leave their ego aside and work as you want them to because at the end of the day, they are ghostwriting for you. It’s your muse and your opinion needs to be taken seriously.
