Publish or Perish, with Ghosts

An interesting article claims that too many professors don't actually write what they write. Or, the covers of their books identify them as the authors of books the paid underlings wrote. And it's not only professors:
Some popular authors, such as Robert Ludlum and V.C. Andrews, even continue writing books after they’re dead, thanks to the help of hired ghosts.
Something tells me I'm doing this wrong. I have the outlines of seven or eight books in my head, but so far have published only two. Any ghosts around who might want to help me here?
