Post Roundup: 8 Great Ghostwriting Posts

According to my 2011 income survey results, a mere 3 percent of freelancers make money from ghostwriting. Ghostwriting and coauthoring have been producing the majority of my freelance income for the last four years, and it's not as hard to break into the field as you might think. (While I primarily ghost books, I know other freelancers who are ghosting articles and blog posts--one freelancer is currently ghostwriting for six different blogs!)

So ghosting is the subject of this post roundup:
What's that? You want to know even more about ghostwriting and how to succeed in this lucrative niche? Then you'll want to read Goodbye Byline, Hello Big Bucks: The Writer's Guide to Making Money Ghostwriting and Coauthoring Books (Kindle version). From sample contracts to marketing advice to tips on setting fees and working with clients, you'll find everything you need to know to get started.


  1. These are excellent links for the potential ghostwriter. I have considered doing it many times, but was unsure of how to go about it.

  2. Thanks, Kristi! That's the idea! :)

  3. Kelly,

    My copy of your new Ghostwriting book arrived in the mail just yesterday and I can't wait to read it. I recently signed a my first contract to coauthor a book on behalf of a local company and it will be my most lucrative project to date.


  4. Hi, Fiona!

    Thanks so much for buying Goodbye Byline and congrats on your new book deal! Let me know how it works about and if you have any questions during the process. :)
