Here’s what to say if someone asks if you wrote the book:
Option 1: You can say that you hired a ghostwriter to write the book for you. Another agent had a great response. He said if anyone asked him if he wrote the book, then he’d reply, “I have a Ghostwriter who wrote the book for me.”
Most people are familiar with ghostwriting. They know that when a super famous person releases a book – it probably isn’t written by them. (Our two most recent Presidential Candidates both hired Ghostwriters.)
Ghostwriting is when someone is hired to write something that will be credited to another person.
It’s something that happens with countless books, speeches, songs and many other things. So with the My Books membership, you are licensing us to be your ghostwriter.
Option 2: You can say that you wrote it with a team. You hired a team to write the book for you. You provided the knowledge and input and they wrote it for you.
Option 3: You can say that you are the author and you wrote it yourself. If you are comfortable saying that, then use that response. It’s your choice.
