I Need More Stevens...and Only Six More Days for the Giveaway!

Last week I received an email from a reader named Steven, which read in part:  

"Are you going to have any of your other writing books on your site?  I recently bought Dollars and Deadlines, Six Figure Freelancing, and Ready, Aim, Specialize before I knew about you selling your books on your site. I will probably buy Writer for Hire and Goodbye Byline, Hello Big Bucks on next unless you are bringing them out on your site any time soon. What I have read of the 3 books I mentioned previously, I have found very helpful. [my emphasis] They were actually a birthday present--my wife asked me wanted and she ordered them for me. I enjoy reading your artcles also because you make things easy to understand. Thank you."

I got back in touch with Steven to let him know I did have a few copies of Writer for Hire and Goodbye Byline in my office. (We authors tend to have extras!) I promptly thanked him, and sold them to him, signing them per his request. And I told him to get in touch with future freelance questions. 

Steven now has all FIVE of my books on freelancing. And I realized, I need more Stevens

No, you don't have to buy all five books (though personally I think Six-Figure Freelancing is the best book I've ever written on successful freelancing), but if you follow this blog, or turn to it when you're looking for proven, practical freelance advice, I hope you'll consider getting an entire book's worth of advice. You don't have to be Steven, but you can be a more successful freelancer if you follow the advice in my books.  

If you want the print edition of Dollars and Deadlines: Make Money Writing Articles for Print and Online Markets, or Six-Figure Freelancing: The Writer's Guide to Making More Money, Second Edition, don't wait. (Prefer an electronic edition. Here's the Dollars Kindle edition and Six-Figure Freelancing Kindle edition; if you don't have a Kindle, you'll find Smashwords editions of Dollars and Six-Figure here. 

Buy either (or both!) book by Monday, May 20 directly from my new company, Improvise Press, and you'll have a chance to win a FREE copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul Inspiration for Writers. It's chockfull of 101 motivational stories by both budding and bestselling writers that will help keep you in the game.

And remember to use the discount code, IMPROVISEPRESS (all caps/no breaks) for 20% off of your order, which makes it cheaper than buying from Amazon. The discount is only available for a limited time when you buy directly from ImprovisePress.


  1. Writer for Hire is one of my favs since you can just open it, read through a few ideas and then have inspiration to keep going. (I took off my writing hat to check out your blog)

  2. Thanks, My Kids! I appreciate that very much! :)
