Format: Paperback
Michael and I have worked together for a handful of years and have commiserated over the trials a freelancer faces. He knows - as most freelancers do - the struggles and solutions every freelancer faces.

This guide puts everything into perspective and makes the landscape clear for both seasoned veterans like myself and for those who might be thinking of making the jump into freelancing. While the title says it's for first-timers, there are lessons here that served to remind me that there are better ways to run by writing business. It never hurts to have some refreshing and clear advice from an expert.

Good work, Michael! Love the book!

I was fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy of Beyond the Margins. I’ve been a freelance writer myself for almost as long as Michael Kwan has and yet I still found a lot of new, invaluable information in the pages of his book. Kwan clearly knows the freelance writing industry inside and out and if you’re looking to take the plunge, which is not an endeavor to be taken lightly, Beyond the Margins may very well prove to be indispensable.

I am a freelance writer myself - making a semi-decent full time salary. I often read blogs - and a lot of kindle books on freelance writing and similar topics - this is by FAR the best book. I write in the health area and I already do many of the things that Michael suggests but it helped me refine some of my practices and cement others by assuring me that I should continue the practice. It would have been a great help if I would have had it in the beginning - but I am going to recommend it to any fledgling writer that I run across because this book is truly great. Simple, concise, well-written and not self-serving. I would love to give a personal review to Michael for promotional use. So great!

As the owner of various web sites and blogs, I get to deal with a lot of content generation and writing. This means I also understand the world of freelance writing very well and get to higher many freelance writers for my sites. Michael does a great job of providing a clear understanding of what to expect from the world of freelance writing for anyone who is looking to get into this area, while also providing various resources and tips for anyone who is already established and looking to step up their game as well.

Format: Kindle Edition
After reading Beyond the Margins I believe anyone would have a very good guide to starting any business, not just a Freelance writing business. All the advice is good common sense, in an easy to understand format from an author that has had to tread these waters without this advice. The book is very concise, to the point, with important tips to make it in the world of freelancing.

I am not a writer, but feel that a lot of the advice can be applied to my field of freelance computer consulting. Some of the best advice in this book is the advice that most people overlook, such as marketing and separating your hobby from your business.

I have read other books on starting your own business that were longer, but less detailed and infomative than Beyond the Margins. I think you will enjoy this book very much.
