Dear Writer (or Aspiring Writer):
Each year dozens if not hundreds of writers and aspiring writers call or e-mail me asking for advice on how to make more money, get published, and succeed in freelance writing.
The most common questions writers ask me about becoming more successful are these:
- “How can I get more assignments and consistently stay busy and profitable?”
- “How can I sell almost everything I write and make rejections a thing of the past?”
- “How can I command higher fees from clients, editors, and publishers for my work?”
- “How can I increase my writing speed and produce more salable work in less time?”
- “How can I get lucrative commercial writing assignments from corporate clients?”
- “How can I sell my book for a five-figure advance to a major NYC publisher?”
- “How can I get a literary agent to represent me?”
To help you achieve all your writing goals, including the ones listed above, I’ve packaged 2 of my best-selling books for writers in what I’m calling my Writer’s Success Kit: Write More, Sell More published by Writer’s Digest Books, and How to Get Your Book Published from Roblin Press.
Together, these 2 books give you complete instructions on achieving your goals as a freelance writer. And there are two points I want to make before I reveal exactly what’s in them.
First, these are not flimsy, short, overpriced e-books. Write More, Sell More is a 245-page hardcover book, and How to Get Your Book Published is a 230-page trade paperback. So you get a ton of content for one low price.
Second, you can trust both books, because they are based on my 35 years of real-world experience as a successful writer.
As a freelance copywriter, I’ve written for some of the biggest companies on the planet, including AT&T, IBM, Ingersoll Rand, and Nortel. I’ve done it all, from magazine ads and direct mail, to white papers and e-mail marketing campaigns. And I’ve consistently earned a six-figure income from my freelance writing for over 3 decades, every single year.
As an author, I have written more than 80 books. And these are published by “real” publishers like McGraw-Hill and John Wiley & Sons, not self-published books or Kindle e-books I had to pay to produce. That’s important, because it means top editors thought enough of my books to pay me advances before they were published or even written.
