The ghostwriting spectrum

Ghostwriting a book can encompasses a spectrum of tasks, from writing a manuscript anonymously to be published and marketed under someone else’s name to a process of intensive editing to guide and support an author into enhancing their own work in their own style. The following books are examples of both types of ghostwriting.
