don't know about you, but I have read a ton of marketing
self-help books. You can spend so
much time reading about marketing that you don't actually
do any marketing! It's called avoidance.
find myself in the trough between hope and despair, I turn to the following web sites or books for inspiration and "what to do next" planning.
Middleton's "InfoGuru Marketing Manual" for independent service
professionals. If you are a freelance writer, that is exactly what
you should be. Independent and professional. Robert's
manual and other products help get you to that happy
place You can check him out here.

Now if you
are looking for a swift kick in the pants and a
quick and dirty - but quite brilliant - marketing game plan, I highly
recommend C J Hayden's book "Get Clients Now!: A 28 day
Marketing Program for Professionals and Consultants". It is a day-by-day, blow-by-blow,
map of how to get there from here. If you want your feet held to
fire, her book
is a great place to start.
Bly's book "Secrets of A Freelance Writer: How to Make $100,000 a
Year" is a gem. I
have lost track of the number of books he has
written on the topic of making a living as a writer, but I would start
with this one. His advice is bang on.
