    Good read.

    This method work for real. I sometimes write my own books though.

    After you create your chapter outline from looking at the table of contents of similar books, it seems like you'd have to read some of those books in order to come up with the 4 or 5 bullets for each chapter that you send your ghostwriter. Otherwise, how would you know what to cover in each chapter?

    Just based on niche focus, the guy featured in the article sounds like a current client of mine.

    Then again, what the subject of the article does isn't exactly a secret nor is it rocket science.

    As mentioned by the article, a LOT of people who BANK off Kindle outsource.

    People outsource work all the time and YES, just because people live overseas this doesn't automatically mean their writing is garbage.

    Keep in mind that some writers from developing countries actually graduated from US colleges or grew up in the US or, in my case, both.

    Here's a Kindle Success tip that wasn't fully explored by the article: Make sure the outline you're going to use to outsource is SOLID.

    If you're going to outsource, make sure your outline is TIGHT.

    The better the outline, the higher the quality and USEFULNESS of the book you get.

    You can edit until you're blue in the face but if you don't start off with a solid outline, you're just wasting your time.

    It's like building a house on a faulty foundation.

    Not a good idea.

    Thanks to the OP for the great share.

    Very depressing, to tell the truth.
    Makes me doubt every single non-paperback Kindle book out there.
