It is my opinion that the fantasy book I was offered to ghost write has been withdrawn.
The reason is I was not willing to lower my price to the level expected by the man who asked for the book.
The book was cut from a 80 page project to a 75 page project, and when I didn't lower the price below $27, the man got cold feet.
Why do I think this?
Two days ago, he approached me.
Yesterday, he was on my back about what was needed.
Today, I haven't heard a word from him.
I can tell you outright, if he expects anybody to get lower than my price, he is not only expecting too much -- most writers I know would charge twice the asking -- but if he did get a lower offer it is nothing short of daylight robbery. Any offer below mine, is an insult to the writer.
On the subject of ghost writing, with Halloween approaching don't forget my special edition of the popular ghost story Old Church Ghosts. This is special because it has an unseen version of my popular story included.
