Publisher's Summary

Most people become freelancers without any idea of how to run a business. They learn in the school of hard knocks. Kristine Kathryn Rusch has taken the school of hard knocks and made it into one of the most useful business books written in years. Included are these indispensable topics:

How To Negotiate Anything: Freelancers must negotiate everything from the rent they pay to the contracts they sign. Here's how to negotiate on your own-and when to hire someone to negotiate for you.
Online Networking: In addition to tricks and strategies for online networking from Rusch herself, this Guide also includes advice from such online networking experts as Neil Gaiman, Michael A. Stackpole, and Mitch Wagner.
The Importance of-and the Difference between-Goals And Dreams: Freelancers often confuse their goals with their dreams. Rusch offers practical advice on how to meet your goals, and the importance of dreaming big.
How To Survive Failure - and Success: Success, more than failure, derails many freelancers. Rusch explains how to turn your failures into successes-and how to optimize the success when it finally happens.

Her Freelancer's Survival Guide is balanced, ambitious, and packed with information that all writers, editors, and publishers should read." (Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times best-selling author)

Happy to have it!

This is a book I will be revisiting. It touches on the subjects not really discussed anywhere else, And it is great to hear different things discussed both business related and not. If you are considering it, give it a try, you might end up pleasantly surprised instead of disappointed!
