Description

Would you like to make a living with your writing? 

This book will show you how.

 

I spent 13 years working as a cubicle slave in the corporate world. I was miserable in my job and my creativity was stunted by the crushing daily grind.

Then I started writing books and blogging, using my words to create products and attract readers. In September 2011, I left my corporate job to become a full-time author and creative entrepreneur and since then I've grown my business year on year – all based on my writing. More importantly, I'm finally living the happy life I always wanted.

I'm not a Kindle or blogging millionaire and this is not a get rich quick scheme. But I will share with you how I make a multi-six-figure income from writing books, blogging and marketing in an ethical manner.

We're living in the best time ever to make a living with your writing! Read on to learn more.

    Great Info for Any Writer

    As an Indie author without direction always hitting road blocks, Joanna Penn made me feel such at ease as ever before. Now, I can move forward with my writing and knowing the steps to take and build on. So glad I took the time to read.

    This is the best book I've come across so far that discusses how to make money from your writing. It suits someone just starting out, and although not everyone will be interested in everything included, it is a solid, realistic book on what you can do and how you can do it. As with seemingly all books of this kind, there are plenty of references to other books, etc, when it could have included more in-depth advice within this book, but it's a good place to start.

    While I did find the book useful, it was not as much as I hoped. Much of it felt like a "pep talk" instead of actual instruction. Also some of it could use a bit of an update, but to be fair the landscape of publishing is changing so fast and it is hard for such a book to keep up. Don't get me wrong, there are some real gems of knowledge in there. But it is a bit watered down by all the "pep talk". Some people need that, and if you are one, by all means get this book. Or if you are very new to indie publishing. If you have published and have a vague idea what you are doing, there are better resources out there.

    If you're an indie author who wants to take it to the next level - authorpreneurship, as author Joanna Penn so aptly calls it - then buy this book. Where Penn's Author Blueprint 2.0 shows you how to put your book together and get it out there, this book, How to Make a Living With Your Writing, shows you how to stand by your work, produce more, and not only keep your head above water, monetarily, while doing it, but also how to thrive as a businessperson with your indie-published brand to showcase and work to sell.
