The jobs listed below are all pretty different from each other and require varying skillsets and levels of experience. But if you enjoy writing fiction and want to find a way to earn doing just that — without waiting on your latest book to take off — these may be of interest to you.

Good luck if you apply for anything I've listed below.

4 – HotGhostWriter

Update 9/25/22 – I've been informed by someone that this company is going through a bit of a crisis and not paying their writers at the moment. I'll update this if that changes. So this may not be a great time to apply with this company.

HotGhostWriter has an ongoing need for freelance ghostwriters to complete books for their many clients. This is full-time, paid freelance writing work.

Pay is listed at $2,000 per month. So for most of you, this would be supplemental income.

You must be a native English speaker residing in the US, UK, Canada, or Australia.

  1. Hi, Anna!

    Thank you for scouring the web for wonderful opportunities! Unfortunately, eGlobal Creative Publishing is a proof-reading job from the Chinese language (whatever that is since there are over 200 in China) to English.
