This Business of Writing by Gregg Levoy

A guide to succeeding as a writer draws on the experiences of notable writers to offer practical advice on adjusting to life as a freelance writer, setting goals, promoting and selling work, and negotiating pay
Kirimath
Good, practical advice about the business aspects of writing, which is glossed over lightly in most books, or ignored completely. Although the information is somewhat dated in some instances, everything contained herein is applicable to freelance writing today. Devoid of empty promises and pie-in-the-sky, this book takes an honest look at the realities of the writing life and offers plenty of tips and examples to help smooth the way for writers who want to be in the business of writing, instead of treating it like a hobby.

As an established freelance writer, I am often asked to coach writers new to freelancing. Most need to learn to see themselves as businesspeople, as well as writers. Toward that end, I always refer them to two of my 'bibles': "Persuading on Paper" by Marcia Yudkin and "This Business of Writing" by Gregg Levoy -- the best written resource I've seen for helping freelance writers make the transition from 'wanna-be' to full-fledged, self-supporting professional.
