I have published over 200 books, 50 with traditional publishers, including Random House, Simon & Schuster, Warner Books, AMACOM, Contemporary Books, Praeger, and many others. I have written dozens of books, proposals, and scripts for clients all over the world, including on social issues, crime, history, memoir, business and self-help. I write kids books and create book trailers, too. I have been on numerous radio and TV shows promoting my books, including on Oprah, CNN, and Good Morning America.

I can work with you wherever you are in the writing process. I can help you identify your audience, position your book, create an outline, do research, and organize how you develop and write your book. I can work with your notes, journals, rough draft, transcripts of talks and workshops, interviews, and Zoom calls with you. When the book is finished I can help you self-publish or find a publisher or agent. I even wrote a book about ghostwriting: How to Find and Work with a Good Ghostwriter.

Here's a recent review of a script I worked on:

Gini Graham Scott is and was exceptional to work with. Not only did she put my wife and I at ease with her background and history in the industry, but her work exceeded our expectations. We hired Gini to help write a script for one of my novels and she did not disappoint. Having never done this before, we were nervous about the process and the translation from novel to script. However she met every need we had, made the transition smooth and exciting and was able to capture my novel and produced a beautiful script. I would highly recommend Gini to anyone that is in need of her services. Her communication was great and her work was even better.
