Or to say it another way, whenever want-to-be-collaborators contact me, their burning question is usually, "I haven't done this before so how much do I charge?"
"If you write articles," I tell them, "you charge the person nothing. Your profit comes from the sale of the article—and the money is yours. The people about whom they write receive no money. They get the publicity, which is their reward."
I can earn money as a ghostwriter—
if I learn the craft and work hard.
