Who has it worked for?

I truly have learned a lot from your Introduction. As you know, these teachings are absolutely crucial to someone involved in any aspect of book publishing. On a personal note, thank you for validating me as a human being every step of the way. Your demeanor, the sailor-esque portions of your vocabulary, and some of your stated opinions about life in general, are relatable and hilarious. Thank you for the opportunity to take your introductory class!

Just a word on the program so far: It is superb. The textbook is … perfect. The rollout of information is well choreographed and clear. The electronic interface is terrific. I can well imagine it being a master’s program. It feels like the master’s degree program in communications I did at Fordham. And I want to tell you what else I’m positively responding to: your emphasis on ethics. (And, no, I wouldn’t dream of charging to support and encourage somebody.)
Lorraine Ash, GPDP student
Thank God for this course! The final business lectures were a great reminder that I’ve come a long way and I can hold my head up high when I talk to prospects because I know I have the skills. I CAN deliver a great service that people should pay for.
Marcus Amann, Certified Ghostwriter

An Eye That Landed on the Ghostwriting Prize
“I was originally a business copywriter,” says Derek Lewis, Certified Ghostwriter, “and I came across an online ad for somebody who wanted a business book written.

Not Your Father’s Ghostwriting
A lot of people still think “Ghostwriting is when someone writes a book for the author.” That’s a rather misleading and old-school definition. When the print world imploded in 2009, ghostwriting was compelled to expand its parameters to help fill in the gap left in traditional publishing houses. Ergo, while there are…
