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.

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.

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.

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.

I've just finished the first edition and now have the second. This is a warmly written and yet honest account of her writing career (briefly) and of the industry. As a new writer this will become one of the references that I will use time and again. She is also quick to recommend other writers being not to proud as well as excellent web sites to address further questions. I have a handful of books that I would recommend but this is one of the first one that I would give out to address things on the commercial end. She and Robert Bly (whom she also recommends) are excellent writers and wonderful to encourage. If you want a start, start here.
