Among an ocean of how-to books about freelance writing, one recent addition stands out: Jenna Glatzer’s Make a REAL LIVING as a Freelance Writer.
Ms. Glatzer is the author of several books about writing and about health issues as well as editor of Absolutewrite.com, a wealth of online resources for writers.
Her easy, conversational style wins over the reader and leaves him with an “If she can do it, so can I” attitude.
In fact, the “Jump in” theme is a constant throughout the book. Ms. Glatzer advises readers to submit their writing to a variety of markets and tells them how to best go about it.
Make a REAL LIVING is not just for beginners, however. Chapters on selling reprints and how to win repeat assignments are helpful to neophyte writers as well.
The book is full of real life examples and Ms. Glatzer is incredibly generous in sharing her experiences as a freelance writer.
Sidebars throughout the book list helpful sources such as where to look for online photos and how to find online experts for interviews. This is an essential book for freelance writers, whether you’re new to the business or an experienced writer. My advice is to “jump in” and buy Make a REAL LIVING as a Freelance Writer.
