‘The thing that fascinates me about what you do, Susan, is how every time you’ve finished ghosting a book for a client, you go through a whole worrying process – speculating about whether they will like what you’ve written, and whether you’ve done justice to their story. . . And then every single time, the client comes back to you to say that they love it! Why do you put yourself through it each time, when you know it’s most likely going to be ok? Surely you know by now that you always do a good job?‘
This observation was made to me last week by my husband, Paul. I’d been casting around for possible subjects for this blog and I’d asked him what he thought people might most want to know about the ghostwriting process.
