Publisher's Summary

Would you like to leave your job and make a living with your writing? This book will show you how.

I spent 13 years working as a cubicle slave in the corporate world. I was miserable in my job and my creativity was stunted by the crushing daily grind. Then I started writing books and blogging, using my words to create products and attract readers.

In September 2011, I left my corporate job to become a full-time author and creative entrepreneur and since then I've grown my business year by year, all based on my writing. More importantly, I'm finally living the happy life I always wanted.

I'm not a Kindle or blogging millionaire and this is not a get rich quick scheme. But I will share with you how I make a multi-six-figure income from writing books, blogging and marketing in an ethical manner. We're living in the best time ever to make a living with your writing!

    "Penn-nominal! Thank you! 😀"

    Between the awesome accent and the excellent author advice, this book is a slam dunk.

    "Great broad-level overview with actionable advice"
    Any additional comments?

    A short book and a great value. I listened to the audiobook over the course of one weekend while doing other activities- exercise, dishes, etc. The narration was excellent. If you are a Creative Penn Podcast listener, many of the points covered will be familiar to you- have multiple streams of income, don’t rely on one company to sell your products, and the benefits of content marketing (give away quality content for free so people start to trust you and eventually buy your products). <br/><br/>I’m glad she wrote this book, it takes the wisdom of her experience and lays it out in an organized fashion, making it more accessible compared to listening to the podcast backlist (over 300 episodes!) or searching her website (hundreds of articles!) I liked part 1 because it summarized what I had already learned by listening to her podcast. I also liked part 2 because it explored topics I know less about, such as how to publish an audiobook and how affiliate income works. <br/><br/>Joanna Penn is a successful author-entrepreneur who practices what she preaches. She provides a great broad-level overview and actionable advice regarding the many ways a person can earn money with their writing. <br/>

    "Great advice and full of real life examples"

    I really love this book, I will definitely come back to listen again some chapters as I put in place Joanna's suggestions.
    Her work has inspired me to continue writing and now I have 2 niche bestsellers in the IT Security area, but the income is not enough yet to leave my company in charge of others. Listening this audiobook has gave me hope that if I apply the recommendations I will succeed and fulfill my dream of writing full time. A few days ago I started to write my 3rd book and have already 2000 words, and I've never written this fast so definitely Joanna has to do with this.

    "Info without the fluff"

    Joanne Penn was able to convey what authors need to get started on their journey to success in an easy and understandable way. I can see why she is such a pillar in the independent author community.

    "Great info!"

    So many authors offer just an overview with no meat on the bones - not the case here. Lots of 'first steps', 'next steps' - a very informative listen !!

    "Solid..."

    Practical advice for any novice writer. Where-to-go-now directions for the more advanced. Certainly worth the price of a beer...

    "What an informative listen."

    Joanna does a lovely job introducing literary newbies to the world of writing for profit. I was fascinated by her use of multiple tools and resources to showcase her talents. Joanna offers clear and concise descriptions detailing how she does what she does, and gives endless resources for the reader \ listener to explore further. The narration was smooth and engaging. What a joy to listen to a how-to book and not be lulled to sleep. I recommend this book to anyone who longs to make a living as an author.
