Rich Mintzer - Ghostwriter

New York, NY, United States

Whether it's a great story to tell or a business to market, I will turn your ideas into a book — in your voice. That's what ghostwriters do.

Overview

I'm a professional ghostwriter, editor and blogger. I have written, or ghostwritten, over 80 published non-fiction books, penned several book proposals, and ghosted many blogs.

I work closely with clients to establish an open and trusting rapport. Through interviews, in-person meetings (when possible) and electronic means of communication, I will organize and structure your book and then write it in your voice. A few years back I established my own ghostwriter service to provide personalized attention because I do not believe in using templates or formulas to write someone's book. Such an endeavor means too much to the individual to take short cuts or a cookie cutter approach.

Topics include business (several books for Entrepreneur Press) as well as a number of financial titles. I've also written on a wide range of topics including; Broadway theater, ADHD, adoption, golf, leadership and even a book about a book, Boats Against the Current about the Great Gatsby. In addition, I've written five humor books and can certainly inject some humor into most projects. I should also mention that my books have been published by a number of major publishing houses including Penguin, Crown, St. Martin's Press and Wiley.

Typically, books take 7 or 8 months, but it all depends on the size and scope of the project. I work out fee schedules and set up times to talk in conjunction with the tight schedules of most of my clients.

The bottom line is that I really enjoy what I do, which is why I've been doing it for 30 years.

But don't take my word alone:

"Rich was a big help on my first book. He provided guidance and helped me shape my words and thought without ever losing sight of my goals for the project."

– Jeremy Bloom, CEO at Integrate / star of CNBC's Adventure Capitalists

My working experience with Rich Mintzer has been fantastic! Rich is very creative, smart, and diligent. Rich has been an invaluable resource to me in the writing of my book in every way especially in the fact that he keeps us moving forward and is so reliable."

– John Mouganis, CFP John Mouganis Financial

"Rich Mintzer is an exceptionally talented writer. He has worked on several books for Entrepreneur Press, both as an author and a ghostwriter, and I can say without hesitation that he is passionate about his work and, no matter what the topic, can be counted on to deliver a smart, accessible manuscript."

– Jillian McTique, former editor Entrepreneur Press
