On Becoming Toke Makinwa And Ghostwriting A Book
Toke Makinwa has written a new book. Except maybe she hasn’t. It all depends on what the definition of “written” is.
On Becoming” the memoir by Media personality Toke Makinwa was launched on Sunday of November 27th 2016 at an intimate gathering held at The Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos.
On Becoming is published by Kachifo (under its Prestige imprint) and now available nationwide at select bookstores across Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, United Kingdom and United States. E-Books will be available on Kindle, Amazon, OkadaBooks and others.
Many entrepreneurs and business executives–along with countless other busy professionals–hire writers to help them write their book, just as Marshall did. Sometimes credit is shared as a co-authorship, but people who hire a ghostwriter are typically listed as the sole author of their book.
A ghostwriter is a person who is hired to author books, manuscripts, screenplays, speeches, articles, blog posts, stories, reports, whitepapers, or other texts that are officially credited to another person.
Celebrities, executives, participants in timely news stories, and political leaders often hire ghostwriters to draft or edit autobiographies, memoirs, magazine articles, or other written material.
In music, ghostwriters are often used to write songs, lyrics and instrumental pieces. Screenplay authors can also use ghostwriters to either edit or rewrite their scripts to improve them.
Have you ever considered writing a book? Could a book about you or your business have a positive impact on sales? So, what’s stopping you?
The most common reason (excuse?) I hear is, “I don’t have the time, I’ll get to it someday.” Or there’s always, “I just can’t get my thoughts on paper,” and, “I am not a writer.” I suppose the reasons are endless, but so may be the list of benefits.
Authoring a book can establish you as a thought leader in your industry, as well as generate exposure for your brand–a book can be a powerful business card.
It establishes credibility and increases your marketability. However, writing a book can be time-consuming and difficult.
Why not consider a ghostwriter to get your story out there? You’ll be in excellent company.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, John F. Kennedy (who won a Pulitzer prize for his book Profiles in Courage), Sheryl Sandberg, Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, and James Patterson are only a few of the best-selling authors who have utilized cowriters and ghostwriters.
Are you ready? Is now the time to give voice to the book inside of you? Perhaps this year is a best time for you to kick start writing your book?
