70 APRIL 2020 I N - D E P T H CONTACT HarperCollins Leadership. The most recent of these books, Built Not Born, by Paychex founder Tom Golisano, recently hit #1 on Barnes & Noble's bestselling business books list. In all, the company's 150 writers and editors work on roughly 350 titles a year, with ghostwriting packages starting at around $20,000 and stretching up to around $175,000 per book. Working with Anderson's company provides a level of quality control prized by increasingly harried editors, says Timothy Burgard, senior acquisitions editor at HarperCollins Leadership. "We know the manuscript is not going to need as much developmental work as if it hadn't gone through one of their writers," Burgard says. "Kevin's writers are very experienced in our genre, and they know the audience, which is key." After all these hundreds of titles, Anderson and his team are finally in the process of drafting a book about his own company's journey. "It's going to be a little about ghostwriting and the publishing industry," he says. "We'll make it funny, make it interesting. We're still brainstorming." But what about a book focused on Anderson himself ? Is it time for him to hire one of his ghostwriters to pen his memoirs? "Nah, my life isn't that interesting yet," he says. "It's been fun, but I've got a lot more to do." Anderson splits his time between West Newbury and New York City.
