This past year has been a remarkable year as a Ghostwriter and Writing Coach. Two books I ghostwrote for have been picked up by both publishers and the film industry. So I have branched out in my offerings and have started to represent authors as a literary agent and help to get the book in the hands of the right publisher.
The industry for writers has changed in an unparalleled way in just one year. Mainstream publishers are nearly impossible to query with your book or writing, freelance writers are priced out by non-english speaking countries who charge 75% less than the states, and vanity press and self publishing options are dominating the market of publishing. So in the next few weeks I am going to address how each of these changes affect you as a writer, as a freelancer, storyteller, screenwriter or editor.
