STEP 3B, Practicing the Work, Interviewing Exercise. Practice your interviewing skills. You will interview me by phone as if you are my ghost for 20 to 30 minutes, about a possible book or article. You plan the interview questions, listen to my answers, probe for details, and keep the interview on track. I will record our conversation and send you the audio file. You then write a short article based on the interview for our discussion later.

- Ten (yes 10) additional e-books on subjects important to ghostwriters, including: Wowing Your Readers; 8 Making History Workbooks containing historical timelines and suggested interview questions covering 60 years and 8 broad topics — very useful in ghostwriting memoirs; and You Can Be An Author.
- Links to other book professionals who can help you and your clients. No one does anything alone! These are people who I have worked with and personally vouch for as experienced, insightful, highly competent and honorable. I trust my clients to these folks.
