"This is the third issue I have received. As with the previous issues, this one is full of priceless leads. Julie, the author, has incorporated some changes for the better.

She weeded out some of the low paying sites, which, I believe, is based on the feedback from current buyers ... again a positive approach. I am not sure what to say. A single gig from any of the 200+ sites in this guide is enough to reimburse its cost.

The only con is that this guide contains so many appealing sites that I am confused as to where I will begin!

A Very Comprehensive Guide

I found many new sources to expand my writing career. She gives a good review of pay and expectations. Along with the usual content marketplaces, I also found new places to sell articles. My sales increased after discovering these new markets. This guide is a great way to start providing web content or to expand your current work. You avoid losing time in research because she has finished it for you. I am very thankful for this resource.

I lead a Linkedin writers group of which Julie Scott is a member. I have referred many group members to Julie's directory and all of them have been grateful for it. No one has ever complained to me about it!

Shortcut to Success!
As someone who is returning to freelancing, I found out quickly how much things had changed in my twenty-year absence. I was not looking forward to wasting a lot of time sorting out the extensive job market and having to suffer through a litany of low-paying assignments. Julie's directory obviates the wasting of said time by putting the freelancer right where he or she needs to be. If you want to enhance your career in the freelancing market and make decent money as well, buy this directory and reap it's rewards. You won't be disappointed!

X Marks the Spot!

As a teacher of adult education courses on the topic of making a living as an online writer, both face to face and via the internet, I get the same tired excuse all the time."But we can't work for $1 an article like those third world writers can!" Well now, there is no excuse!

This valuable resource gives the writer more places to pitch to than they will ever need. There is something for every writer here, be they fiction, technical or social commentary types. Professional writers have down time when they need to be working on their business, not in it.

These periods are beneficial to pitch new clients and find new work because too many freelance writers started their writing businesses thinking work would just magically appear in their email In Tray. Well, it does not. You need to go out and hunt for the treasure and the 'Directory of Paying Markets for Freelance Writers' is a treasure map!

This Directory has so many X's marking the spots where the writing work treasure lies, you are spoilt for choice! The Directory is good for writers around the world, not just US based.

Worth Every Cent

A friend recommended this book to me and I must say that it was worth every cent I spent on it. It has valuable information about writing sites and is useful for anyone who wants to get started in the freelance writing market. I wish I had known about this earlier, it would have saved me a lot of grief writing for scam sites.
