I've been a self-employed writer for 16+ years, so I'm excited to announce that I've added a new business to my freelancing umbrella. I am now the owner of Improvise Press, a company that publishes books for creative people who want to profit from their passions. While our first books focus on making money as freelance writers, we plan to add more books aimed at hobbyists in other fields in the next two years.
Improvise is entering the publishing field with its first two titles, Dollars and Deadlines: Make Money Writing Articles for Print and Online Markets and Six-Figure Freelancing: The Writer’s Guide to Making More Money, second edition. I'm especially excited about Six-Figure Freelancing, a book that has been out of print for years, and has been revised and updated for its second edition.
Six-Figure Freelancing will show you how to:
- Take a business-like approach to your freelance career;
- Negotiate more writer-friendly contracts with editors and clients;
- Identify lucrative freelance markets;
- Pursue book projects;
- Create your own writing templates;
- Work more efficiently;
- Create and maintain relationships with clients and colleagues;
- Set short- and long-term goals for your writing career;
- Branch into lucrative new freelance areas; and
- Sustain a successful long-term career.
Now, in 2013, even while the publishing world has undergone dramatic change, there are plenty of promising opportunities for freelancers. This updated, expanded version of Six-Figure Freelancing includes an entirely new section on markets; advice about using social media and blogging to build your career: more than two dozen templates including query letters, letters of introduction, and contracts; and the latest advice from successful six-figure freelancers you can use to sustain a long-term freelance career.
