So You Want to be a Freelance Writer?

So there I was, having a little downtime and checking up on the blogs listed on my blog. I have often enjoyed Deborah Durbin's posts about the trials and tribulations (and joys, let's not forget those) of freelancing. But the blog was nowhere to be seen.

I hopped over to her website then pinged her and discovered that she is not only alive and well (anyone who knows my history will understand my trepidation there...), but has taken the plunge on Kindle.

So You Want to be a Freelance Writer is the distillation of her former blog and filled with gems to take you from A to B (Aspiration to Business).

Deborah has been a journalist, columnist and author for the last 14 years, and has written far afield both in the UK and the US. So, what are you waiting for?

  1. Thank you Derek! Yes, what ARE you waiting for? It's a very good book and costs less than a multipack of Walker crisps (and has less calories).

  2. OK, so question.... If you're kindleless, ipad-less and ipodless - can these be read on a laptop??

  3. I can't speak for all formats - over to you, Deb - but I did find Kindle for PC here:

  4. Yes Freya, you can download it to your PC if you first download Whispernet from Amazon (free).

  5. Hi Derek, I couldn't find your email address, so thought it appropriate to post another reply here, if that's OK?
    I'm running a one day workshop in Bristol at The Folk House, based on my freelance writer book, about how to become a successful freelance writer, on Saturday 18th February, from 10am - 3pm, if anyone is interested. Feel free to email me for more details at deborah.durbin@yahoo.com
