Beyond the Margins: An Indispensable Guide for First-Time Freelance Writers, Designers, and Other Work-from-Home Professionals

You could say that this little project has been more than three years in the making. Ever since I co-authored Make Money Online with John Chow, I’ve wanted to have a book of my own with a solo byline. And now that day has finally arrived with the release of Beyond the Margins: An Indispensable Guide for First-Time Freelance Writers, Designers, and Other Work-from-Home Professionals.

As you can imagine, this is a book that is geared mostly toward people who are considering a career in freelancing or are just getting started. There are many factors to consider beyond the actual work itself; Beyond the Margins goes into some of these key fundamentals, like how to set up your home office, how to market your services, and how to attract the right kinds of clients.

For now, I consider this a “soft launch” of the book, because it is currently only available in e-book form for Kindle. This works on Kindle e-readers themselves, of course, but there are also Kindle apps for smartphones and tablets that let you read Kindle books, as well as a Kindle app for the computer where you can read the e-books that way. Fret not, though, as a print version of Beyond the Margins is in the works and should be made available soon.

This has truly been a labour of love. If you are kind enough to purchase a copy of Beyond the Margins, I humbly request that you also post a customer review on the book’s page. You can pick up your copy now on Amazon for under $8.

    Congratulations Michael! I’m sure it is a great book and even though it is directed at Freelancers and writers I believe that it can offer anyone some great advice on how to run a freelance business of whatever type they try to start.

      Absolutely true. It’s from the perspective of a freelance writer, since that’s what I do, but it’s just as applicable to tech support, photographers, designers, and other freelance professionals.
