Great Guide to Financial Freedom! Dec 6, 2006
Thanks to Bob Bly's books, and this one in particular, I've successfully made the transition from corporate attorney to freelance copywriter! Bob Bly gives step-by-step, easy to follow tips, instructions and ideas for building a successful writing business. Some authors discuss theory at length - not Bob Bly. He touches on theory only when it's critical to understanding the concept. Otherwise, he sticks with practical, 'here's what and how to do it' type of information. If you're considering a freelance writing career, don't pass up this book! /s/ Lynn Roberts, Attorney-turned-Writer
We've Changed Printers Aug 18, 2006
Maury Erickson of Filbert Publishing here. I'm one of the people who published this book.
I thought I'd take a moment to reply to a couple comments on this this site page.
Yes. I totally agree. In the beginning of our publishing history, we dealt with some definite quality control issues. Thing is, we were hoping to create an earth-friendly product made by local talent. Clearly, that vision didn't work well in the long run. Suffice it to say that we're now printing this title elsewhere and the finished product looks fantastic.
Bob Bly is one of the most generous individuals we've ever dealt with. He's as nice in person as he appears in his books. The information he provides honestly works. You don't need a big-time education. You don't need to be blessed by luck. Just a little elbow grease and know-how will take you very far in the freelance writing profession. Just ask my wife. She's a Bly fan and is currently reaping the benefits.
I appreciate your comments and wish all of you the very best in your freelance endeavors.
Good advice on a wide variety of writing related topics Jul 2, 2006
This book is a compilation of previously published articles and covers a wide variety of topics such as: book proposals, technical writing, setting fees, speaking etc.
I found a great many golden nuggets of information in these pages. I'd recommend this book for all those who would like to get a good taste of the breadth of Bob's wisdom.
As others have mentioned, the binding is not the best, but I was gentle with the book while reading it, and didn't have any pages fall out. Even with the binding issue, I consider this a worthwhile investment.
If I had purchased it, I would have returned it Apr 1, 2006
I was given this book as a gift and made it to about page 20, at which point I threw it in my recycling bin.
I'm sure there is valuable information to be found in the book somewhere, but the quality of binding is so exceptionally poor that it was a pain to read even before the pages start falling out.
It is great that Mr. Bly makes over $100k a year, though disappointing that at this point in his career he is cutting corners to up profits by self-publishing such an utter rip-off.

Bob Bly's books are a godsend. They are easy to follow and honest about the business. A must have.
