Questions and Answers from a Full-time Ghostwriter

I would like to thank Ginger Simpson for the terrific questions she posed to me for an interview on her blog where she asks and I answer the following questions: 
  1. Yvonne, you’ve created such a wonderful Web site in “Writers in the Sky.” What prompted you to spend so much time creating it?
  2. I see that you promote many ‘paid’ services to authors, but you continue to solicit free postings for you monthly newsletter from any author who cares to contribute. Besides being a very generous offer of free promotion, how does this benefit you?
  3. I note that you’ve ghostwritten a number of books. I’ve always been interested in how you become a ghostwriter. Could you divulge a little information about this part of your career?
  4. If you could share only one valuable tip with other authors, what would it be?
  5. How much faith do you have in blog tours and do you recommend them?
  6. You’ve written some very interesting books, many of them self-help genres. What inspired you to write, More Than Meets the Eye?
  7. I also notice you offer assistance in writing query letters. That seems to be a hot topic on many of the loops these days. Care to share a tip or two with us? Some of us have gotten to that stage and have no idea how to meld together the mixed bag of information on the Internet.
  8. You made a very brave move in leaving a Fortune 500 career to begin your own business. If you had it to do over again, would you make that same decision?
  9. I found it so interesting that you have been involved in Toastmasters. I attended for a number of years and thoroughly enjoyed it. How has your membership served you in the writing world?
There's a gift for those who leave a comment here or on Ginger's blog.
