Product Details


Writer for Hire is a ‘no-BS’ guide to making it as a freelance writer. Kelly spells out exactly what you need to do. If you follow her advice and don’t reach your writing goals this year, I’d be very surprised.”
~Linda Formichelli, co-author of The Renegade Writer: A Totally Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing Success

“The words ‘total professional’ seem to have been invented to describe Kelly James-Enger. I have been a long-time fan of her previous writing books and I will also highly recommend Writer for Hire. This may be the champion of all the writing books James-Enger has written because it contains her best advice compressed into short chapters that make for speedy reads. If you are a service writer looking for the secrets to success, they are all in here! It’s taken James-Enger fifteen years of hard-wrought effort to learn them, and now they can be yours. Read closely. Bring a highlighter. Apply what you learn. You’ll be so glad you did.”
~Christina Katz, author of The Writer’s Workout, Get Known Before the Book Deal, and Writer Mama

“Whether you’re a beginning freelance writer or a veteran, Writer for Hire is extraordinarily helpful, and a compelling read. You’ll find a formula for sure-fire query letters, how to break into business writing or ghosting books, and much more sensible, tested advice. This book brims with serious, step-by-step ways to boost your income, your productivity, and your spirits!”
~Salley Shannon, President, American Society of Journalists & Authors (ASJA)

“If you want to start, refine, or redefine your writing career the right way, pick up this truly foundational book. Chock full of so much solid, sensible, practical and creative advice, information and ideas, this ‘writing-career compass’ will give you an edge right out of the gate.”
~Peter Bowerman, Author, The Well-Fed Writer books
