Although I will continue to review science fiction and fantasy books as I read them, I will also start reviewing books on freelance writing. I have a few waiting for me in my “to read” pile. Most focus on commercial writing (copywriting, brochures, marketing documents, etc.) over writing articles on for magazines on spec. If you would like me to review books about writing articles for spec, please let me know.
First in the queue is You’re Not Fooling Anyone When You Take Your Laptop to a Coffee Shop by John Scalzi (@scalzi, and his blog, the Whatever). Scalzi has experience as a fiction and non-fiction writer, a journalist, and a freelance commercial writer, so it seems like a good place to start.
Keep an eye out for the reviews. I hope you enjoy them and find them useful.
