Entice Readers: Make Great Headlines

One of the final steps in putting together your book is jazzing it up with great headlines and subheads. An experienced ghostwriter can make great headlines that will entice the reader to continue to turn the pages. You want to create a book that’s attractive to readers the first time they pick it up and flip through it, and great headlines can make that happen.

Review the table of contents, headlines and subheads to make sure they reflect the actual text and appeal to readers. A ghostwriter will make great headlines for each of the chapters in your book, letting readers know what to expect. Subheads will be inserted every few paragraphs to break up the text and let readers know about a shift in topics.

The headings are what readers will see when they’re opening a book and skimming through it, so it’s important that they are clever and grab a reader’s attention. Which would you rather read: a chapter headed “Real Estate Essentials” or “How to Earn Your Fortune in Real Estate in 10 Days”? Great headlines will have a bit of pizzazz and engage readers, making them want to read more.

The headings and subheads will be included in a master outline of your book that you can review. That outline will be used to create the final version of a table of contents that will be placed in the front of your book to provide an easy reference for your readers. You want your book to be something that readers will refer to again and again, and a good table of contents will enable them to do so.

In this and every other step of the ghostwriting process, you can have as much input as you want. The goal of every good ghostwriter is to create a book in your voice, telling your story and presenting a good reflection of you.
