This is a giving writer, with a wealth of experience, sharing her knowledge carefully and generously." --Alex Gazolla, author of the Mistakes Writers Make series and blog "There is not a more sound, comprehensive guide for freelancers on the market. I'm not exaggerating. Moira Allen, in her seasoned wisdom, lays out a solid, sensible roadmap for you to begin a freelance career.
