Book Review: The Hungry Freelancer

Author: Beth Jones

When I was given the opportunity to review this book I thought it might be a good learning experience. So of course I decided to apply for the review. I enjoy blog writing, So perhaps I would like freelance writing.
I found the book to be very interesting. The objective of the book is to help a writer to break into and succeed in the world of freelance writing. I imagine a few of my readers that are blog writers might be interested in this topic.
1.      The Art of Storytelling
2.      “Writer” VS” Author”
3.      Where to Start
4.      How to Find (and Keep) Clients
5.      Making Money
6.      Writing it Down
The first chapter covers “The Art of Storytelling”. In this chapter you will learn a few ways to develop your storytelling skills. This chapter also shares the education or skills you may need to be hired as a freelance writer.  

In chapter three you will learn about content mills and other ways that freelancers make money.

There is much more to learn is this book. I will not be sharing all her secrets. If you would like to read more about the author Beth Jones visit her blog, “The Hungry Freelancer”. If you would like purchase this title you can find it on Amazon.

Other titles by Beth Jones are, The Coupon Diet, Far Away Friends and Thing to Talk About Before You Get Married.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. This seems like a helpful book.

  2. I sure could use all the help I can get. I write like such a hick!! This sounds like something I need to check into. Thanks so much for the great review.

  3. Going to have to go check out her other books too. Far Away Friends sounds very nice.

  4. Sounds like a lot of good info. May have to check it out... especially the content mill info.

  5. That sounds like it is a pretty helpful book. I know so many people who are interested in jobs that give them flexibility so they can also be there with their kids. Freelance writing sounds like it would be great.
