107: Ghostwriting Books with Julie Anne Eason

Julie Anne Eason – Ghostwriter

Ghostwriting books was not how she began her professional career.

Julie Anne Eason has been a professional writer for over 20 years. After figuring out that fiction writing wasn’t for her, she turned to freelance journalism and copywriting for a living. As technology advanced, she witnessed the balance of power in the publishing industry shift. Once the big New York publishers held all the cards. Writers were “lucky” if they could land an agent or a book contract. But now individuals are taking the initiative and writing, publishing, and marketing their own books without the need for an agent or publisher to give them a chance — which means that finally businesses, non-profits, and entrepreneurs can take advantage of the amazing power of books.

Today she ghostwrites full-length books for entrepreneurs, speakers, coaches, CEOs, and other business people who want to expand their reach and build their brands. And most recently she has combined her love for marketing and writing to create The Successful Author Podcast, where she interviews book industry experts on writing, publishing, and marketing books.
