“An essential read for freelance writers.” ―The Writer magazine
“Packed with invaluable information. . . . The ‘extras’ Allen offers often distinguish her book from competitors’. . . . This is a giving writer, with a wealth of experience, sharing her knowledge carefully and generously.” ―Alex Gazolla, author of the Mistakes Writers Make series and blog
“There is not a more sound, comprehensive guide for freelancers on the market. I’m not exaggerating. Moira Allen, in her seasoned wisdom, lays out a solid, sensible roadmap for you to begin a freelance career. And if you aren’t doing well at the job now, this book might just tell you where to go back and make it right. Highly recommended. My new go-to how-to book when I make recommendations for my readers.” ―Hope Clark, editor of FundsforWriters and author of The Carolina Slade Mysteries and The Edisto Island Mysteries
