Bestselling Ghostwriters: September 2010

Bestselling Ghosts: September 2010

It’s scary how consistently there are three books written with the help of credited ghostwriters on the New York Times Hardcover Nonfiction Bestseller list. Here are this month’s:

6
PROMISE ME, by Nancy G. Brinker with Joni Rodgers. (Crown Archetype, $25.99.) How a sister’s love started a global movement to end breast cancer.

21
COMING BACK STRONGER: Unleashing the Hidden Power of Adversity, by Drew Brees with Chris Fabry. (Tyndale House, $26.99.) The N.F.L. quarterback recovered from an injury to play for the New Orleans Saints.

29
CALLED TO COACH: Reflections on Life, Faith, and Football, by Bobby Bowden with Mark Schlabach (Howard/Simon & Schuster)

Be sure to support your fellow ghostwriters by using the links above to buy the books.

Very interesting. But isn’t the phrase “credited ghostwriter” an oxymoron. As an uncredited ghostwriter of a dozen nonfiction books, it seems like “jumbo shrimp” and “open secret” and “pretty ugly” and the rest to me.

You’re right, Henry. It is pretty funny. I think it’s great that there are authors out there willing to give us ghosts a “with” credit. It’s also cool to hear that you’re doing well as a “true” ghost. If you’re allowed to, let us know what you’ve worked on!

I am looking for a writer for a true story. Murder, Millionaire, tragic parent lives, single mother with 4 children, mother’s father killed by father-n-law, abusive grandparents, drug/alchol abuse. Please contact me if you can recommend someone.

Hi Michelle,
Sounds like quite a story. I’m sure one of us could help you, or we could help you find someone, depending on what your goals are. Let me know if you’d be willing to talk on the phone next week so I can get some more information from you.
Happy New Year!
