Hire a ghostwriter here. One of our Ghost Writer, Inc. team members, a best selling ghost, created the proposal, "edited" the book, got it published and caused the production of the related movie. It became a blockbuster starring Queen Latifah and Jennifer Garner in 2016. Showings have finished, hope you rent the DVD or Blu-Ray!

Does Chris Hoy use a ghostwriter?

Sir Chris Hoy has admitted using a ghostwriter for his new children’s book, likening the practice to having a support team of mechanics behind him during his cycling career.
The six-time Olympic gold medallist is the only credited author on the cover of Flying Fergus, which tells the story of a nine-year-old boy who is given a magical bike as a birthday gift, but he admitted yesterday that Joanna Nadin, an author and former New Labour adviser, had written the book.
Celebrities ranging from Katie Price, the glamour model, to Frank Lampard, the footballer, have put their names to children’s books, which some critics have complained are simply attempts to cash in on their stardom.

Appearing at the Hay Festival, sponsored by the Telegraph, Sir Chris was asked whether it was fair to suggest that he had provided the concept of the book, while Nadin had actually written it.
He replied: “Yes. A lot of people would say, ‘It’s my book, I wrote it all myself,’ and then have some ghostwriter in the background. I wanted to be open and honest about it and say this is a joint effort, it’s a team thing.”
Nadin said she was “totally fine” with not having her name on the front of the book. She said: “My name’s on the inside cover. At the end of the day he sells far more books than having my name on the cover would.”
Speaking about Sir Chris’s reaction to her writing, she said: “He’s quite a critical editor, I have to say.”

The Olympian said he had based one character, Calamity Coogan, on fellow cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins. He also hinted that a talking canine character, Chimp, was based on British Cycling’s former technical director, Shane Sutton.
Sutton was forced to quit in April, after being accused of sexist bullying, but Sir Chris has spoken out in support of the Australian. He said: “Chimp can speak, in an Australian accent. One of my coaches, the character is part based on him.”
