But what about a book for writers who simply want to earn a regular paycheck? Writer for Hire is just the wisdom full- and part-time freelancers need. Author Kelly James-Enger details:

   • 101 secrets to success, organized into five overarching strategies. You'll be able to implement what you learn immediately.
   • Invaluable advice on managing deadlines, querying effectively, working with clients, handling taxes, invoices, and more.
   • Strategies for getting more writing gigs, including networking (in-person and online), establishing yourself as an expert, working more efficiently under tight deadlines, and handling rejection with confidence
James-Enger looks at the "whole freelancer," addressing both the craft and business of freelancing.
