Aspiring authors who hire a freelance ghostwriter, write their book with a partner or editor, or just DIY the whole thing themselves feel they have completed a monumental task.
But typing The End is not, in fact, the end.
A text file on the computer is not an authority-building asset. It’s not a 24/7 lead-generator. And it’s not Intellectual Property you need to leverage for bigger and bigger opportunities.
For the serious professional, traditional publishing is unacceptable. Still, the independent alternative—self-publishing—seems no better. If any ole Joel can upload a file to Amazon and sell it for $0.99, any ole Joel will.
At present, Amazon lists 32.8 million books for sale, a hefty share of which are self-published tripe that sells fewer than one copy.
An industry-disrupting, civilization-altering book deserves better than the online equivalent of the slush pile.
Don’t risk the upside of authorship with low-control, low-cost alternatives.
Your book deserves better.
Your book deserves the best.
Ghostpublishing:The Best Way to Publish It
Ghostpublishing, the brainchild of Joshua Lisec, combines the best of pros of both traditional publishing and self-publishing and eliminates the cons of each.
With Ghostpublishing, bringing your book to life and to print is no longer an either/or problem; it’s a both/and solution.
No more do aspiring authors have to choose between complete creative control . . . and figuring it all out on their own. Between going big and professional . . . and retaining all their rights to their book.
Because it’s a lot like ghostwriting. With ghostwriting, someone else does the hard part, and your name appears on the cover. Ghostpublishing is that . . . for the entire book production process once the manuscript is complete.
Lisec Ghostwriting handles all the essential behind-the-scenes tasks of launching your own publishing imprint, big or small, and the result is a bookstore-quality production in hardcover, paperback, digital, and audio.
And of course, Ghostpublishing can bring you into real bookstores for further visibility, clout, and reach.
