"From now on when I get queries from sailors wanting to know how to get started as writers
for the sailing press, I'll recommend this book. It's not just the book editors have been
waiting for. It's the book long awaited by every sailor who hopes to make a buck
while pursuing his sailing dream."
--Karen Larson, Publisher of Good Old Boat

"Concise, usefuland encouraging for any aspiring magazine writer, not just those in the sailing field." --Lin Pardey, author of more than 400 magazine articles

"Michael Robertson has done a great job composing a primer of practicalities for freelance writers.
His clear advice is reinforced by having been widely published, allowing him to cite
numerous useful examples from his own efforts."
--Tim Queeney, Editor of Ocean Navigator

"If you've ever thought about sharing your passion by writing about what you love, you need this book.
Michael Robertson has put together the ultimate toolkit for launching your freelancing dream."
--Beth A. Leonard, freelancer, speaker, and author who supported herself for two decades writing from her boat
