"Without a doubt the best, most essential book for writers who are contemplating quitting their day jobs and doing the writing thing full time. I wish it had been around when I went freelance for the first time back in 1980; I have friends who have absolutely relied on Rusch's advice and it never leads them astray." (Orson Scott Card, New York Times bestselling author)
"Not many people understand the publishing business as well as the author business - Kris Rusch is one of them. Her Freelancer's Survival Guide is balanced, ambitious, and packed with information that all writers, editors, and publishers should read." (Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times best-selling author)
This book has a lot of good anecdotes for the writer with no, or maybe only a few years experience. Helpful information about the business start-up process for any beginning entrepreneur, and insights from the often perilous, shark-bitten world of Sci-fi writers.
Although there isn't a lot of detailed information about putting together articles or short stories here, the author gives plentiful advice about the publishing industry and different career paths in general.
