I want to let you know that I revised my eBook, Where Are The Ghostwriting Jobs, available through Amazon. As with any industry, markets come and go. Links break. So I went through and made changes as needed.
I removed several entries that either are no longer in business or have stopped posting jobs, and I replaced them with other markets I’ve uncovered.
In a few places I included new excerpts from recent ghostwriting job posts.
Links that had changed and were broken are now fixed.
In a few cases the sites’ content, structure or scope changed, so I revised the site descriptions accordingly.
If you already have a copy that reads *Revised Edition* under my byline, you have the updated version and you’re good to go.
If you have an older edition, please send me proof of purchase and I’ll be happy to send you a PDF version of the updated eBook, free of charge. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if you haven’t yet purchased this title, now’s a great time to do so because you’ll get the most recent details about today’s ghostwriting markets.
To your success,

Reason #1: Payment
Writing for yourself is great. I encourage you to do so. Create articles, books, eBooks and reports under your own name. But if you find it difficult to get paid for your own work, then turn to ghostwriting to augment your income. Clients with funds who have something to say in print but lack the ability to write expertly will hire ghostwriters to write and polish their manuscripts. With a good, solid contract with all terms spelled out clearly, and with clients who value the services of a professional writer, you will receive payment for your work.
Reason #2: Writing
When you create your own works, you have to market them. For some writers this is fun; for many, it isn’t. If you want to focus on writing, then ghostwriting is a good gig. In the majority of ghostwriting projects, the writing and editing fall into the writer’s domain while the marketing side is the responsibility of the client.
Reason #3: Interesting People
Many people who want to write a book or an article (but lack writing skills) are very interesting people. They’ve traveled the world and want to tell their stories. They have interesting jobs and need to share their expertise with colleagues. They might be an astronaut, a rock star, or a surgeon who’s pioneered a revolutionary new procedure. As a ghostwriter hired by people like these, you first hear their fascinating stories and then come up with effective ways to write them.
With practice and care, you can make money as a ghostwriter doing what you love (writing) working for fascinating people.
