"Writer for Hire is a 'no-BS' guide to making it as a freelance writer. Kelly spells out exactly what you need to do. If you follow her advice and don't reach your writing goals this year, I'd be very surprised." ~Linda Formichelli, co-author of The Renegade Writer: A Totally Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing Success "The words 'total professional' seem to have been invented to describe Kelly James-Enger. I have been a long-time fan of her previous writing books and I will also highly recommend Writer for Hire. This may be the champion of all the writing books James-Enger has written because it contains her best advice compressed into short chapters that make for speedy reads. If you are a service writer looking for the secrets to success, they are all in here! It's taken James-Enger fifteen years of hard-wrought effort to learn them, and now they can be yours. Read closely. Bring a highlighter. Apply what you learn.
