 Have you ever dreamed of owning your own writing business?  Sure, you have!  Pretty much every writer has, at some point.  But where do you start?  What has to be done first, and what comes after that?

Help is here!  A Professional Writer's Ladder to Success will get you going and give you the tools you need to plan for, launch, and run a successful writing business.  As you work your way through each of the "rungs" of the series, you'll be building your own "Ladder to Success Action Plan".  You'll use it to get your business going and keep adding to it as your company grows and develops.  Each book combines the author's own experiences with the opinions of experts in the area of focus to give you practical advice you can start using immediately.

The series begins with Rung 1: Planning for Self-Employment. It covers the characteristics common to entrepreneurs and directs you to several personality tests to determine your own preferences. You'll also learn how much it costs to start a writing business and plan for those expenses.  Handy worksheets help you with the math so all you have to do is plug in the numbers.

Rung 2 is Learning the Writing Industry. It explores the various types of writing you can do for money and gives you a plethora of links to sites where you can research them in more depth.  You'll be adding to your Ladder to Success Action Plan with the worksheets in this book, as well.

In Rung 3, Polishing Your Writing Skills, you'll find out which skills are needed for different types of professional writing.  Exercises in the e-book will help you hone the writing skills you already have so you can apply them in your own business.

Rung 4, Writing a Business Plan, walks you through putting your dreams on paper so you can begin taking the first steps toward actually launching your business.  The worksheets included in it will be the latest additions to your Ladder to Success Action Plan.

Rung 5 is very exciting: Establishing Your Writing Business!  It tells you how to set up the legal entity that will be your business and how to get properly licensed and set up to start seeking clients.

Rung 6, A Writer's Professional Ethics, is a good reference manual to keep on hand that tells you how to conduct yourself professionally, be supportive of your fellow writers, and delight your clients with the ethical way you do business.

Rung 7, Finding Your Niche, explains how to zero in on a specific portion of the larger marketplace that will increase your profits and decrease your stress level!  Worksheets here help you identify the niches best matched to your own skills and experience.

Rung 8, Virtual Partnerships, shows you how to establish alliances with other creative professionals who can expand your business opportunities and help you get projects you could never tackle on your own.  It also contains worksheets that will help you set up your partnerships to appropriately protect both parties.

The Writing Business Exploration Package combines Rungs 1 & 2 to give you an overview of the industry and see if it's one you'd really like to pursue.  It's priced cheaper than if you purchased each rung separately.

If you're more ready to begin, the Writing Business Startup Package includes Rungs 1-5, and will get your business up and running.  It's also priced lower than if you purchased each of the 5 rungs separately.

These are all the rungs in the series that have been released to date, but others will be coming in the future.  All can be purchased at


My process of trial and error has taught me many things, and through this series, I hope to share them with you and spare you some of the more painful parts of seeking success as a professional writer.
