Review by: Greg Rohloff on June 13, 2011 :
This has many useful tips on gaining notice for freelance writing possibilities. I recommend it for older writers who may be reentering the freelance field after leaving a regular writing or editing gig in the shrinking media world. What worked in gaining freelance work before needs additional tools and skills. This handbook lays out those tools in a clear and understandable fashion.

I got my original copy a couple of weeks ago from the WM Freelance website's direct PDF download thing. I agree that the book has a lot of good info. I couldn't believe how much it contained and for free. I did notice one or two typos but not an extreme amount, and it didn't bother me, especially since I got the book free. I am more of an amateur writer I guess, but I have been published in my local paper several times. I think a lot of the info I found in the book was really helpful and I haven't seen a lot of it before. I really appreciated getting the book free.

This book has some great information, but I thought it was geared more to people who are just starting out on their writing careers than those who have been writing for some years. Still, it makes a good refresher course, and I have followed up on a few things mentioned.

Many of the articles were marred by bad grammar and typographical errors, things which are no-nos for writers. However, these served as good reminders as to why we should always use spell and grammar checks if another set of human eyes isn't available.

This is great book filled with insightful information about marketing your writing. It's up to freelance writers and writers in general to market their work. Writers who don't have team behind them will enjoy this book because it provides them with the steps and tools needed to market their writing. It will become your 'new' best friend. Also, it's great for those who like information that gets to the point. It's important to see the 'big picture' and not get lost within the details.

If you want to know about "Marketing Yourself and Your Writing Online", then this is a great book for you!
As one of the contributors, writing about Guest Posts, I was the beneficiary of so many freelance writing tips and pieces of advice. When given the opportunity to submit an item for this book, it was a chance to give back to a community of freelancers who have shared their experiences with writers at the start-up stages or more experienced writers as well who are getting into the social media aspect of writing. It is a source of sound info for all writers.
