comment How do I find a ghostwriter for a series of books?
I think before this question can be answered fully there are a number of point's that need to be specified. Most importantly (to some writers), do you have any existing experience and a portfolio of your works? If not then you may have difficulty finding a writer that will essentially write a book for you without some sort of down-payment. Secondly (and more important to me) what sort of books are you intent on developing - I don't think there are many writers out there prepared to write something they themselves wouldn't enjoy reading.

comment Is there enough money in writing for me to quit my dead end job?
To be honest, I work 8 hours but with an hour bus journey each side of my shift. I thought about using the commuting time to write on my Ipad whilst on the bus, but in Coventry (England) I would give it no more than 30 seconds of exhibiting such a device before some opportunist swipes it.

comment Is there enough money in writing for me to quit my dead end job?
Apologies, perhaps I didn't make myself particularly clear. Whilst my sanity is questionable, I am not a complete idiot as to think it wise to leave my job at such an early stage (especially considering my vast financial commitments). I am merely seeking confirmation of a light at the end of the tunnel. I am willing to put years of work strenuous, gut busting work in to begin with, but it would be comforting to know that this new found hobby could become a career.

comment Do publishers take the time to look at works from writers who have no qualifications or experience in the industry?
Thanks Jay, it's good to hear this shouldn't be a stumbling block.

comment What is the best marketing strategy for a novel and two short stories?
Apologies for the partial comment before the last, editing via mobile phone can be troublesome.

comment What is the best marketing strategy for a novel and two short stories?
Firstly, apologies if 'releasing' is an incorrect term in the industry. We intend to use KDP to begin with as this appears to be the cheapest option and also the most recommended for beginners. Marketing the book is still an area we are working on but we do have some unique ideas.
