Join us as Melinda Copp discusses How to Get Your Book Idea Focused So It’s Easier to Write.

Melinda Copp, founder and executive editor of The Writer’s Sherpa, LLC, is a book ghostwriter and editorial consultant based in Bluffton, South Carolina. She specializes in helping aspiring authors get clear on the real story they were meant to tell, organizing their material in a powerful way, and then using the client’s ideas to write an engaging and compelling book that delivers their big message.

Melinda’s first ghostwriting gig was working as a professional ghostwriter’s editorial assistant. Since then, she’s started her own editorial business and ghostwritten ten books on a wide range of topics, including memoir, self-help, and business. She has an MFA in creative writing from Goucher College and a BS in journalism from West Virginia University. Melinda teaches writing workshops and provides one-on-one editorial consulting for aspiring nonfiction authors.

She has worked with coaches, consultants, speakers, lawyers, doctors, real estate agents, financial advisors, and aspiring authors from diverse backgrounds to create manuscripts that they’re proud to put their name on and confident sharing with the world. She publishes a monthly e-zine for authors, The WRITE Path, that’s packed with helpful information and resources on how to write, publish, and market books.

When Melinda isn’t ghostwriting and working with her clients, she’s probably playing with her kids outside, reading, or working on her own manuscript. Melinda is dedicated to helping people achieve their dream of becoming a published author. To learn more about her services, visit
