Hi, I’m Deborah Ager—a marketing pro turned business book ghostwriter.
In 2007, I used an author’s book to land him tens of thousands of dollars in speaking gigs and sales trainings. That’s how I learned books can provide a powerful business marketing foundation.
A friend and agency owner asked me to ghostwrite his business book. I said yes. I published my own first book in 2009 and others after that. It was through these books that I mastered the book creation process.
After my first book appeared, people came to me to have me speak and give presentations at colleges and universities. And then I went on to help dozens of people with their books by teaching them or collaborating with them to finish their book.
What I found is that experts like you have all of the knowledge inside, yet they need help getting it out and turning into a structured book that generates leads and prospects.
The reason business leaders turn to me for facilitation is what one client called my “trifecta” of marketing background, business acumen, and writing experience. I’m not just your editor. I’m your book doctor and collaborator. I ask the questions you don’t know to ask of yourself in order to deepen your topic, connect better with your readers and target market, and create a more effective marketing tool.
I believe in serving those who aim to improve humanity and those who have big ideas and need a bigger audience for them. That’s why I do this work.
Over the years, I’ve worked on marketing, writing, and web projects for the Centers for Disease Control, National Institutes of Health, Lockheed Martin, the U.S. General Accountability Office, and the American Red Cross.
Now I combine my marketing, business, and writing knowledge with my proprietary book creation process, so founders and CEOs like you can build your authority and capitalize on your thought leadership.
I live in the Washington, DC area with my husband (a novelist on Crown Publishers) and my daughter (a novelist on Google Docs). The cat hasn’t done a darned thing. I enjoy reading books, taking walks, and eating Vietnamese summer eggrolls.
The first step in working with me is to schedule a 15-minute call and find out if we’re a good fit.
