Nancy Drew Hardy Boys Ghostwriters

Here's an interesting article which came out recently, about the ghostwriters for Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys. Can you believe the writers of the 1980's series got $2000 up front and $2000 afterwards? That was 30 years ago, and it's STILL a great paycheck!

Sadly, they don't accept manuscripts from authors the way they used to! Now, they contact writers directly, if they're interested in having someone ghostwrite a book. I'll be honest; I was interested in applying to be a Nancy Drew ghostwriter. Maybe I could build a time machine and apply during the 1990's?

I would so do it. It's sad they don't let you do that anymore.
