Most books on freelance writing promise the moon and don't deliver. Freelance writing is not an easy ticket to wealth -- it's an enjoyable profession for the person who has some talent and the desire to work hard. Tom Williams gives the guidance needed to make your efforts pay off. His advice is highly practical, detailed, tested, and no-nonsense. He doesn't overwhelm the reader with irrelevant digressions, or load the book with fluff and empty promises. Instead, he offers hard-earned tips, insight into how editors think, and all the information a writer needs to become a successful freelancer. None of the competitive books reveals the stylistic secrets that editors are looking for, how to protect your ideas, or what happens when your book or article gets published; Williams thoroughly covers these areas.
