More About the Author

Hi there and thanks for checking out my author page!

As a full-time self-employed freelance writer for 16+ years, several of my books show freelancers how they can develop and maintain successful careers, whether they're new to the business or are more seasoned. (Yeah, that's code for "older.") My latest books include Dollars and Deadlines: Make Money Writing Articles for Print and Online Markets (available on Kindle--print version coming soon); Writer for Hire: 101 Secrets to Freelance Success; and Goodbye Byline, Hello Big Bucks: The Writer's Guide to Making Money Ghostwriting and Coauthoring Books. Today most of my writing work is ghostwriting/coauthoring books for health, fitness, and nutrition professionals. In other words, I get paid to accumulate useless facts that may or may not come in handy if I ever get on Jeopardy.

I'm a novelist too. I write contemporary women's fiction--books about women today, the problems they face, and how they overcome them. I've always been fascinated by relationships, and love writing about them. My newest novel, The Honesty Index, explores the lives of two former "BFF" who are now in their mid-30s and whose lives have grown apart--yet who still need each other more than ever before. My earlier two books, Did you Get the Vibe? (available in print and on Kindle), and White Bikini Panties (available on Kindle) are "chick lit" and are fun, engaging reads. And I like my characters to figure out how to solve their own problems--just like in "real life."

What else should you know? I'm the mom of two little kids who struggles to make time to write fiction; I've lived in the Chicago suburbs (Downers Grove) for fourteen years; and like most women, I'm constantly trying to find that work/life balance. Most days I fail but am having a great time regardless. Thanks for checking out my page, and I hope you enjoy my work!

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book has long stood out on my shelf of freelance writing books. I consider it an "essential" in the genre. As a fan of the first edition, I was thrilled a second, thoroughly researched and updated edition (March 2013) was released. The author shares a fresh perspective on her career and life developments. Her interviews with top freelancers are updated and refreshingly candid. Whenever I pick this book up, I get hooked on the voice and on the author's story of leaving a successful law career for writing and giving up suits and heels for sweatpants and the hum of her Mac. Along the way I got a peek into the world of highly successful writers. Her advice is excellent, and it's realistic--it's not an overnight success story or a get rich quick scheme. No, this book is about hardworking, talented writers thriving in a tough publishing world.

Format: Paperback
Six Figure Freelancing was one of the first books I purchased when I started freelancing and it quickly became my go to guide for freelance advice. Kelly's no nonsense approach to freelancing inspired me to pursue more lucrative assignments with top tier magazines and the practical advice, templates and examples throughout the book taught me how to maintain a profitable writing business. The second edition is even more valuable than the first with added advice on writing for online markets and managing social media -- both musts for successful freelancers.

As a teacher/writing coach, I'm often asked for book recommendations to help writers launch or expand their freelance careers and Six Figure Freelancing is always at the top of the list. It's truly a priceless resource for writers at all levels.

When I want to learn about a topic, I turn to an expert. Kelly James-Enger is an expert writer / journalist. She is someone who has been in the trenches of the writing world and understands the insider ways to navigate the world and make money.

With SIX-FIGURE FREELANCING (SECOND EDITION), she has updated a classic writing book and made it even better. If you want to increase your income from your writing, then you need this book. Get it. Read it and mark it up with your yellow highlighter. More importantly, apply the information to your writing life. If you take action, you will thrust your writing career into the elite group that have achieved SIX-FIGURE FREELANCING. With this book, you open the world of possibilities.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this book when the first edition was published a number of years ago. It became a bible of sorts, as Kelly James Enger packed so much practical advice into it. I know I got more and better freelance-writing gigs because of it. Now it's time for a second edition, and the author has come through again, with updated material and sound advice for making it as a well-paid freelancer -- even in the current economy. She doesn't get soft with the reader on anything about this business. It's tough out there. But there is good-paying work to be had, and she will show you how to position yourself to get it. You will be a better business person after reading this book. And that's what it takes to become a Six-Figure Freelancer.

I loved the first edition of this book, but the times, they are a changin, and this book gives all the right updates without losing the best parts of the first edition. Everything you need to know about freelance writing in one book... great overview.

I've read several of Kelly James-Enger's books and they are all top-notch. I find myself quoting her all the time to new writers. This book, in particular, I loan out on a regular basis to folks that want to turn their writing hobby into a career. I also had the opportunity to interview Kelly for an article I was writing, and I can say that her down-to-earth style that you will read in her books is real. Six-Figure Freelancing is my "go-to" for my writing business.
