Topic: Ghostwriting (Part 2): How to work with a ghostwriter, who most needs a ghostwriter, and how much ghostwriters typically cost.
Our guest is Claudia Suzanne. Claudia Suzanne has been a professional ghostwriter for decades and has participated in the creation of 132 books. She has watched firsthand how the negative trends in publishing have produced positive trends in ghostwriting. Based on her considerable experience, she has created, and teaches, a master's level college course called "Ghostwriting Professional Designation Program." This course offers the world's only ghostwriter certification. The course is taught at California State University, Long Beach, College of Continuing and Professional Education. (California State University, Long Beach--also known as Cal State Long Beach--is the second largest campus of the 23 school California State University system, and one of the largest universities in the state of California as measured by enrollment.)
