Welcome To Ghostwriter

Let me be your shadow.

Whether you’re a busy entrepreneur looking for the right words for a presentation or business report, a politician or someone who’s been asked to write a “thought” for a prestigious publication (or, indeed, a tabloid) – or even a celebrity writing a column let me be your voice.

About Me

Geraldine Comiskey

As a reporter and feature-writer working for the national media in Britain and Ireland for more than three decades, I have spent most of my life telling other people’s stories – to a very wide range of readers.

My byline is familiar to readers of mass-circulation tabloids and “quality” broadsheets. I’ve also written for local papers around Ireland and a variety of magazines in Ireland, the UK and the US.

Introduction

Ghost Writer

Let me be your shadow. Whether you’re a busy business owner looking for the right words for a pitch or a company report, a politician or expert asked to write a “thinkpiece” for a prestigious publication (or, indeed, a tabloid newspaper) – or even a celebrity writing a regular column – let me be your voice.

You may be an excellent communicator within your own professional circle – but why waste your valuable time trying to tailor your style to suit a newspaper readership, to libel-check and proof-read your article with a deadline looming (and a myriad other things to do), or to learn a whole new set of skills specific to the newspaper business? Let me take the pressure off you, to free you up to do what you do best. Let me do what I do best – exclusively for you. 

Feel free to flick through the newspaper cuttings on this site, which will give you an idea of the range of topics I’ve covered as a journalist, and, more importantly, the range of types of publication. Of course, my “ghost” work won’t be on display here, as all ghostwriting assignments are carried out in strictest confidence. And if, by chance, you come across one of my “ghost” articles, you won’t even know I wrote it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Copywriters tend to work for big PR agencies or freelance “content mills”. While the latter are cheap, the quality of their writing tends to reflect this fact and anyone with basic literacy could do a better job writing their own copy. At the other end of the scale, PR agencies charge their clients hefty fees to cover the cost of admin and other overheads, and to cover the expenses of high-flying spin-doctors who will happily spend your hard-earned money wining and dining journalists in return for “placement” in a newspaper. Invariably, the article will look like a “puff piece”; readers will not even know why they have flicked the page without reading it. A ghostwriter won’t do anything as blatant as ask a journalist to place an article; a ghostwriter won’t ask you to pay for anyone’s lunch; a ghostwriter will be your secret!

No. The purpose of hiring a ghostwriter is to present the work as if it is your own; I am your secret! As a journalist for nearly four decades, working in many different newsrooms, I can assure you that journalists – and, more importantly, readers – always prefer an “authentic” story to “PR-led”, placed “copy”. An eloquently worded, powerfully engaging article sent in by a politician, an expert academic or the Managing Director of a company is infinitely more attractive to a newspaper editor than a press release from a PR agency or anything written by an in-house spin-doctor. 

Not as a ghostwriter. You must know what you want to say before you ask me to say it; I will only provide the words. Remember: I am your voice.
Yes. This is an automatic part of the ghostwriting / copywriting service for no extra charge, and I take pride in my proofreading skills. If, however, you just want me to proof-read a piece you have written, there will be a reduced fee (please see “Prices”).
