Writing and money

'I am simply a jobbing writer,' the novelist Patrick Gale declares in a fine interview with the Western Morning News - 'it's just as well I don't do this for the money because I would earn more as a typist.'
I wondered recently whether ghosting wasn't the trick to pump in a bit of cash. It's one of those genres I've not touched as yet. Then I learned that the going rate for ghosting a name sports personality seems to be around $20,000. Fine for a fan, maybe.
