If you write online, either on the side or full-time, I recommend the book Where Are The Ghostwriting Jobs: 34 Online Markets For Entry-Level and Established Ghostwriters by G. B. Sholander. It is a helpful read and very well organized in its structure.
About the Book
In this book, author Sholander provides 34 online markets for ghostwriters. The book appeals all levels of experience, from beginners in the field to more experienced writers. For anyone who doesn’t know what a ghostwriter is, it is a person hired to write content for someone else who is named as author of the work.
G. B. Sholander begins Where Are The Ghostwriting Jobs? by explaining what ghostwriters do and how they get started in the field, and then explores the online markets for this career field. The markets named in the book (shhh I can’t give away the site names, you have to get the book to find out), include online job boards and publishing houses. There is even a section about how to create your own opportunities for writing.
Review of Where Are The Ghostwriting Jobs?
I found this book very helpful for me as a writer. I like that the author didn’t make promises early on in the book that were not delivered in later pages. She did not promise to offer places to look for ghostwriting jobs and then fail to provide them. She DOES provide the names of many quality sites that hire writers for these opportunities.
From this book, I found new websites to get jobs and new leads for work. That’s invaluable! Not a bad investment of a few dollars for the e-book! I also learned more about the actual sites. For each online market mentioned, author Sholander explains where the company is based, what you will find there and whether the site is open to people around the world or only to certain countries. It includes the website links for easy reference and specific instructions for how to apply to particular sites to increase chances of acceptance there.
The writing style is clear and easy to understand. It is not a complicated read, which I appreciated! I also liked that there was not an assumption that the reader already knew what a ghostwriter was before starting the book. That meant I never felt like the language was over my head or difficult to understand.
I recommend G. B. Sholander’s Where Are The Ghostwriting Jobs? if you are looking for a knowledgeable book about finding ghostwriting work. Author Sholander has several years as a ghostwriter under her belt and so I trust in her words that are written from experience.
Note: I was not paid to review this book. It is an honest review.
