1. How much to pay ghostwriters?
It seems like the prices are all over the place on elance. From 30 to 200 for similar things. Anyone know a good base starting price for ghostwriting 5000 wordish stories?
2. Should you let the author use their own name?
Is there any downside to letting the author use their name, or should you always create your own author names.
3. How to deal with contracts?
I've seen numerous contracts online but I'm not sure how to make them legal. Should you request the contract be signed, scanned and sent to you, or is there way to do this electronically?
Any other helpful info from people who have gone down this road before would be greatly appreciated.
