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!

Format: Paperback
Often times people think of freelance writing as a dream job that requires little effort and you only work the hours you want, and then they wonder why they are not successful.

Michael does an outstanding job of covering the positives and negatives of being a freelance writer, and provides the types of tips and tricks that only someone that has been there and done that - successfully - can provide. His words should provide a dose of reality for those looking for the quick and easy path to online riches, but also provide a huge stepping stone for those that are ready to roll up their sleeves and become a successful freelance writer.

Beyond the Margins lives up to the name as well, because many of the lessons that Michael shares are applicable to any entrepreneur that is trying to make their own way. This was a great read and I would highly recommend for anyone that is interested in writing or starting their own business.

Michael's book is an excellent resource for anyone looking to start in the freelance writing business. While it's written with beginners in mind, it's got some great advice, and serves as a back to the basics refresher for more experienced freelancers as well. This book covers everything from administrative organization to marketing and finding work. Working as a freelancer offers a tremendous amount of freedom, but also has requirements your average employee won't deal with. I'd highly recommend it.

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!
