From the Author
In 2008, I gave up the security of running a preschool to pursue my dream of writing. It was both the scariest thing I ever did, and the best.
Armed with tons of energy and lots to say, I quickly built a decent following at a blog about fatherhood. But I wasn't making a living at writing.
I devoted the next two (very long) years to studying from the best and making enough money writing copy for clients so I could support my goal to write fiction.
Along the way, I made many missteps, wasting time and money on things which didn't work, while learning from what did and adapting. In a couple of years, I went from chasing low paying jobs to setting my own rate, writing for great clients, and building a successful ghostwriting and consulting business.
And I can finally afford to take time to write for myself.
If you're writing online, you need to be more than a good writer
. You need to be versed in blogging, social media, SEO, content creation, and marketing. I've learned from some of the best in each of those arenas, some of the rock stars of the online writing world.
If you're tired of chasing low paying writing gigs, want to take your writing to the next level, and finally make the great living you deserve, I'm here to share what I've learned along the way.In the course of a few hundred pages, you will learn what took me years to learn ... without making the same mistakes I made.
I wrote Writing Online
for the me in 2008, the book I wish I'd read back then. It's part how-to and part inspiration that you can return to time and again.
I wrote this book in a super friendly manner, explaining things in easy-to-follow, easy-to-implement ways which can help you regardless of what kind of writer you want to be. My goal is to help other writers make their dreams come true, also.
So, what's your dream?
