Promote Your Practice With a Health or Fitness Book
If you’re a healthcare professional with new information to share or a unique health or fitness treatment or program, imagine having your own book to promote it. A book authored by you with the help of a health book ghostwriter can:
- Inform and inspire people toward better health
- Introduce a new treatment or therapy
- Raise your credibility
- Attract new revenue
- Raise your fees
Why hire a ghostwriter?
If you’re a successful healthcare practitioner, you may be too busy delivering care to get your ideas from brain to paper. And unless writing is your passion, you may not have the expertise to organize those ideas into a book people want to read. That’s where a seasoned ghostwriter comes in.
I put your ideas onto the page
As a health book ghostwriter, I can streamline the book writing process, so you have a final manuscript in just six months. Using personal interviews and research, I outline your story or program, develop the book concept and write the book so that your job is simplified. Once you have reviewed and approved the final result, your book is ready for publishing.
In my career, I have authored nine books for Sunset Publishing, ghostwritten chronic health disease management workbooks on a variety of health issues and edited text books on health education for middle schoolers. As an author, I know how to filter good ideas from bad, preserve your voice, create a compelling read and keep your message on point. This is your book, and it’s my job to bring it to life.
A simple process with a complex finish
There is nothing simple about writing a good health book. But when you work with a seasoned ghostwriter, it will feel like the story writes itself. Depending on how quickly you can review each chapter of the manuscript, a book can be completed in six months.

Health Book Editing
You may have already written your book and shared it with a few friends, who have made suggestions on things you might want to change. Most of the time, friends and family are too polite to tell you what the book really needs.
A good book editor will take your ideas—your book—and ensure that the organization, style and flow are consistent so that your book is one people want to read and share.
I offer a range of editing services to help get your manuscript ready for publication.
- Manuscript assessment: assessing book to determine what works and what is missing
- Competitive analysis: comparing your book to other books on the subject
- Developmental edit: Looking at overall organization, rearranging chapters as needed and ghostwriting missing copy
- Line editing: Improving clarity of sentences, as needed
