How to Make a Living with Your Writing by Joanna Penn

There are many books available that ‘share’ those nuggets of information that turn writers into successful writers. What makes this book different, to me, is that the author pitches the challenge – of writing for money, of getting a self-published book read – and then explains how she did it.

Moving from full-time employment to full-time writer and writing entrepreneur is no small achievement. Not everyone will want that challenge, but if you already write and now want to write successfully (however you assess that), this book should be on your virtual shelf.

Within its pages are links to articles and websites that reinforce the author’s message – so there’s added value to the cover price. Much of the general information might be found in writing magazines and on the internet, but this book works because it is based on measured success.

It delivers the answers that most readers will be in search of – how can I earn from my writing, how can I exploit a growing market?

I received an uncorrected proof copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The book is available from Amazon:
