Just received a tweet linked to a great review of Everything You Wanted to Know about Freelance Writing. Here’s a short excerpt with link to the full review.
From the Transitionelle blog: “… I decided to purchase an ebook copy of Everything You Wanted to Know about Freelance Writing which is actually a combination of two of [Paul Lima's] previous works: The Business of Freelance Writing: How to Develop Article Ideas and Sell Them to Newspapers and Magazines and The Six-Figure Freelancer: How to Find, Price, and Manage Corporate Writing Assignments. Quite honestly, I wouldn’t read one without the other unless you are focused on either publication or corporate freelance work.
There’s something about Lima’s writing style that clicks with me … With 25 years of freelance experience under his belt, which is equivalent to my entire lifetime, Lima was not someone who I expected to relate to. However, despite our generational difference, I found the book was laid out to suit the needs of a beginner of any age or gender. Moreover, he was more than capable of explaining the technological side of writing, which evidently comes from his years of writing his technology column for the Toronto Star. I was impressed.” [full review]
