I chose to read Writing Success as a member of Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team and received a copy from the author. This does not change my review in any way.
Writing Success is, as it says on the front cover, a book filled with inspiring stories of success, with hints and tips for making money writing. Now, I have to admit that I am a little narrow focused when it comes to my writing, as I’m always working towards my next novel. However, reading this book has opened my eyes to other markets as well as how to go about approaching them and, very interestingly, how much to charge, as well as details of rates of pay.
I really enjoyed reading all about writing as a journalist, the benefits and challenges of being a freelancer and where to find your inspiration. Plus, there are several stories of success, including lessons from independent authors, and I was delighted to turn a page and see a familiar face!
Writing Success is very well written, clear and concise, and I’m sure all writers would find it a useful read, particularly if they are looking for a creative reboot, like a couple of the writers in one of the stories it features. Highly recommended.
