I wrote this for my Ghostwriting for Profit group on Facebook and am sharing here for readers as well!
So, I think we have an opportunity for a great conversation here - one that includes a variety of perspectives and elaborates a bit on some key distinctions. And one that is probably overdue.
There are different kinds of fiction out there - and I'm not talking about genres. I mean the end product created, and the associated costs that authors pay a ghostwriter to create these distinct works. Because the costs vary wildly, and for good reason.
This distinction isn't often discussed for whatever reason, so it fuels a huge disconnect - one that I've been thinking a lot about today! So, allow me to share some key insight that I've gleaned from working successfully as a ghostwriter for the past decade, creating all kinds of copy - and bringing in well over $100k each year doing so!
