Thats the word from ghostwriting guru Mahesh Grossman, who says the success of Fantasias book is proof that people who cant write still have a way with words.
Grossman says Fantasia credits ghostwriter Kim Greene for helping the American Idol winner get her words on paper but admits writing in the voice of someone who is not particularly grammatical can be easier than writing for someone whose grammar is spot on.
He thinks Fantasia may inspire other functionally illiterate people to tackle book projects but admits theyll need more than not being able to read or write in order to get published.
He says thats because the publishing world wants someone who succeeds despite their problems.
