Written by two freelancers who broke the rules to win the game, this Amazon-bestselling book contains a wealth of information for writers who are frustrated by the seemingly limited ways to operate in the freelance market.

It explains that freelancers can negotiate for more money and better terms without risking their careers, shows that editors are not the writer-gobbling monsters many freelancers fear, and explains how to establish and foster work relationships.

In this updated second edition there are more ideas, more rules to break, and more resources to get started. Linda and Diana offer up “rules” of the freelance biz that are spread by books and magazines—from “queries need to be under one page” to “never call an editor”—and show you why and how to break them.

As inspiration, the book includes examples of real writers who have gone against “expert” advice and flourished.
