Review Wednesday – How to Make a Living from your Writing by Joanna Penn

img_1878I have been dipping into this book for months now and thought it only fair to write a review as I will never finish it, in a manner of speaking.

Joanna Penn covers the subject of making money from writing with aplomb. She begins with a short history of her own career and lays out the income streams she achieves through her writing. The book is clear and each section is well defined.

There are writing tips and advice on productivity as well as mindset and focus. In later sections she gets down to the nitty gritty of putting a book together, enlisting the help of professionals along the way and Indie versus traditional publishing.

Every step of the way the book feels like it is offering realistic, down -to -earth goals without ever promising easy-peasy secrets to fame and fortune or too much, You Can do It! -style hype.

I believe this author really know her stuff and I am sure I will be delving back into the book in the months ahead.
