Here are four reviews for Everything You Wanted To Know About Freelance Writing. The book is now being used for the University of Toronto’s online version of The Freelance Writing Business as well as courses offered by The University of Western Ontario and Humber College.
Review: I found your book, Everything You Wanted To Know About Freelance Writing, practical as well as valuable. I’ve read just about every book on freelance writing on the market and I’m beyond the “start-up” phase, but I still found your book beneficial–particularly how it helped me update my business plan…. In addition, I’ve read a great deal of advice on setting rates, but your breakdown of billable hours allowed me to see not only where I needed to be, but how I am going to get there.

Review: Well! How do you teach an old dog new tricks? When it comes to writing, I discovered the answer is simple; get your hands on Paul Lima’s books. His Harness the Business Writing Process and Everything You Wanted to Know About Freelance Writing are like mini-workshops packed with practical instructions and exercises.

I would not be writing successful copy and articles today without Paul Lima’s handbooks and guidance.
