IC Romance is, IMHO, made of WTF. They want ghost writers to produce entire romance books as work for hire for an undisclosed "nominal" fee. It is implied that these are contracted by publishers. I cannot see how this arrangement would be to the benefit if any writer or any respectable publisher.
I suppose if the fee is truly nominal the work could be sold to a small or vanity press and the royalties would eventually net ICR a profit? But basically I don't get it. If anyone knows more, please tell? Failing that, a saying involving a bargepole comes to mind.
