Sometimes I browse through Craig's List and check out the ads for ghostwriters. Craig's List is generally a lousy place to look for ghostwriting gigs. It's full of people who want tons of work for peanuts, or worse, "half the royalties!" (Thanks for nothing. Literally.)
But every once in a while, I come across one that just makes me laugh.
My personal observations are in italics.
Ghostwriter/editor needed for Sci-fi Novel (Already a problem that she doesn't know which service she wants)
I need someone to rewrite my 92,000 word post-apocalyptic space opera vampire fiction (genre traffic jam alert!) to make it ready for publication in the late fall. (this fall????)
Compensation: $500 (cue laugh track.)
