Flight to Heaven

I just have to share this book with you. I finished reading it and have been telling all my friends about it. Flight to Heaven: A Pilot’s True Story, by Capt. Dale Black.

This little book tells Black’s story of surviving a plane crash, where he went, and his life after he returned. I believe it had to be a God thing for him to have even survived and that God has worked through him in this book. Black had to literally rebuild his young life and on the way found a relationship with God and a love for others that is an example to all of us. If you liked 90 Minutes in Heaven, then you’ll love Flight to Heaven. It is a quick read for those with busy schedules who find it hard to make time for books.

On Being a Ghostwriter

I went to a party about a year ago and when a woman asked me what I do, I told her I was a freelance ghostwriter, author, and speaker. She nodded and then asked “Do you like scary stories?”

I had to explain to her that a ghostwriter doesn’t write stories about ghosts or necessarily scary stories. Anyone else who may be a little confused, let me clarify that ghostwriters are hired to work with a person who has a good idea, a message, or information that they want to write into a book. They either don’t have time to do it themselves or can’t write. So, ghostwriters like myself collaborate with them and assist them in writing their book.

In cases with high profile clients, a ghostwriter has to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Sometimes, the ghostwriter’s name is given with the author’s name. For example, Don Piper with Cecile Murphy (90 Minutes in Heaven). Most of us work annonymously and are paid a flat fee for our work. Then, we move on to another project. It can be a very lucrative career.

Hope you’ll come back tomorrow to find out more about this life as a ghostwriter.
