I receive a constant stream of enquiries from budding authors who wish to see, and profit from, their published novel or biography. I am a ghost-writer, not a publisher and so the stumbling block for most is actual publication of their story when I have played my part.

It is a fast moving world. Conventional publishing is a dead duck for most but as the saying goes; when one door closes another opens. In fact it has never been easier to self-publish via Amazon and similar. Online books already outsell conventionally published books; bookshops now only account for 1% of book sales.
In the perfect world I would be able to recommend my author clients to someone who, on receipt of my completed copy, can take it on to online publication; for a fee of course. Just set it up so the world can buy and read online. Any suggestions from the computer literate would be welcome? Thanks! – Mike

Actually Mike, publishing to Kindle is relatively easy.  There are step by step instructions on Amazon:

Kindle Direct Publishing

If it's really not for you then maybe have a chat with "The Word Queen", Keidi Keating.  I think this is the sort of thing that she does.

Hi Justin,

Thanks for that; I will try the lady. It isn’t that I disbelieve you about kindle; would I? I have so much on my plate that I haven’t time to go ‘off message’ even as an indulgence. Five book ghost-writing enquiries this week alone. Each assignment is preceded by lengthy e-dialogue. Each to his own I will get in touch. It’s for my clients really.
By the way, as an example of this; I did have trouble getting into my Eye blog, and I contacted you about it. I figured out the reason; for some unaccountable reason I had been signed out so order has been restored. I am seriously no geek   :o) – Mike
