Review - Ready, Aim, Specialize!: Create Your Own Writing Specialty and Make More Money! by Kelly James-Enger
















Ready, Aim, Specialize!: Create Your Own Writing Specialty and Make More Money!
Kelly James-Enger
Marion Street Press, Inc.
ISBN # 978-1933338248

"Contrary to what you might think, you needn’t be a PHD, or recognized "expert" to focus your writing in a particular area. Your educational background, life experience, and interest in certain subjects can all be translated into a writing-related specialty."

There are many books available about freelance writing, but Kelly James-Enger provides fantastic information on how to capitalize on your own specialty to carve out a niche for yourself as a freelance writer. The writing is clear and concise, but also fun! Ready, Aim, Specialize! includes 20 queries that garnered assignments and an appendix of resources. This book has been added to my reference shelf!
(November 2007, 256 pp, $16.95)

Good review. Thanks for bringing this one to our attention. Also the image of the cover is a great touch. Too many writers do not do this. Keep up the great posts

I'll definitely look into getting this book or at least checking it out at the library.
