Reviews

"Every writer needs tough love. Typically that's delivered by your editor as you're writing the book. But where's the tough love once your book is ready for the world? It's in here and Jane Friedman's got the goods for you. No one will better help you understand the challenges ahead; no one will offer a more comprehensive approach to scaling the walls. Writers ask me all the questions Jane answers in here. All I need to do now is send them to this book."--Richard Nash, CEO, Cursor, and former publisher of Soft Skull Press "Friedman's 20-plus years in the industry, launching and managing the social media presence of Writer's Digest, along with her expertise in business strategies for authors and publishers, combine to create an invaluable compendium of practical advice with encouragement for aspiring and seasoned writers alike."--Starred Review "Library Journal " "While countless books and classes exist to help writers improve their craft, few focus on the practical aspects of maintaining a writing career over time. Friedman's wise and wide-ranging The Business of Being a Writer offers essential and extremely helpful advice on how writers can survive and thrive in the current publishing landscape."--Dinty W. Moore, author of The Story Cure "The Business of Being a Writer provides lucent, sage advice on setting realistic goals toward shaping a rewarding career, going well beyond simply achieving publication or getting an agent. At last, a single book to recommend to writers peering into the vast labyrinth of how to become a successful, professional writer. Thank you, Jane!"--Jeffrey Lependorf, Executive Director, Small Press Distribution and the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses
