I also recommended that I do pay these folks good money to do what they do for me.
From that thread, I have been hit with a number of requests to share the names of my writers with the people contacting me.
Of course, I refuse...
I figure if my writer's want more work, they will go get it...
And if I share their names with everyone, there is a real good chance that they could be buried with so much work that I would never be able to hire them again.
A number of people have given me grief about not sharing the names of my writers with them.
One person told me that I was not being a good warrior, because I was unwilling to "share the wealth"... LOL
The reality is that it is extremely difficult to find and hang on to good writers.
I have been hiring writers for more than a decade, to do work for my ghost writing clients and for myself.
The sad truth is that I have to hire 30 writers to find 1 keeper.
I have 3 keepers on my list right now, and I have spent a lot of money to find them. So forgive me if I don't feel charitable in giving you the name of the person that I spent thousands of dollars to find...
My advice to you is that if you are searching for a top-quality writer, be prepared to pay what they think their time is worth to them.
Don't try to dicker with them over prices, and be willing to pay extra to keep them on your payroll.
