How to write someone else’s story.
Ghostwriting is pretty much what we do as copywriters. We write the words that others get to claim as their own.
But have you ever been asked to write something more substantial than a blog, web copy or brochure? Have you ever been asked to write to someone else’s BOOK?
That’s the kind of ghostwriting we’re talking about today. Just in time for Halloween. BOOM!
Don’t judge. That joke had to be made.
