I'm delighted to announce the launch of my e-guide, Business Planning for Editorial Freelancers: A Guide for New Starters, published in association with The Publishing Training Centre.
Written for those with no prior publishing or editorial experience, this practical guide takes new editorial freelancers, step by step, through the basics of planning their business.
There are some super early reviews on the book's dedicated page, written by publishers and fellow professional editorial freelancers.
The best price available is on Smashwords: Smashwords offers downloads* for multiple devices, so even if you have a Kindle it's still cheaper to buy it there than on the Amazon site. To get your 20% discount, enter coupon code CS66F at the Smashwords checkout.
Don't have an e-reader? Not a problem. This guide comes in a variety of formats, including PDF, allowing you to download to your computer if you prefer.
I'd like to take the opportunity once again to thank my fabulous contributors for helping to make this guide a really useful first piece of kit for any new starter in our industry: Kate Haigh, Liz Jones, Nick Jones, Janet MacMillan, Mary McCauley, Johanna Robinson, Anna Sharman, Marcus Trower and Grace Wilson.
*Refer to the Smashwords download instructions for how to get the book onto your chosen device.
