    This was a good book but aimed more for freelance magazine writers. I was hoping to learn more about querying fiction or picture book manuscripts. It did list some good ideas on how to find editor's names and how to structure a query. Also listed some examples for those who are visual.

    Sometimes, I just need a good kick-in-the-pants to get me thinking about freelancing, whether from an online course or an e-book. This book did it, and got me on a motivational, querying streak all weekend long. Although some of the commentary by query writers and editors was contradictory -- Use a quote in your query! Don't use a quote! Research tons in advance! Just throw something out there! -- I think I picked up a lot of general tips to get me moving in the right direction and, most importa Sometimes, I just need a good kick-in-the-pants to get me thinking about freelancing, whether from an online course or an e-book.

Don't use a quote! Research tons in advance! Just throw something out there! -- I think I picked up a lot of general tips to get me moving in the right direction and, most importantly, see ACTUAL EXAMPLES of query letters that landed assignments and ACTUAL FEEDBACK from editors explaining their thinking on each one. That's probably one of the least covered topics when learning about freelancing (and I have a degree in journalism) and one of the most valuable, so, for under $3, I think this e-book was certainly worth it -- although in hindsight I might have preferred a paperback version so I could highlight and return to it for easy reference. (Kindle highlighting just isn't the same.)

    Was looking for inspiration as I jump back into freelancing to make some extra cash. Query Letters That Rock contain just that, with some worthwhile FAQs to start you out. While some of the book is dated, with long-gone markets, but the advice is timeless.

    Excellent book about freelance writing. I've been freelancing for alomst three years now, and the Renegade books are still useful. Highly recommended. Love the blog, too, at www.therenegadewriter.com. Excellent book about freelance writing. I've been freelancing for alomst three years now, and the Renegade books are still useful.

    This is a useful book for people starting out. I had already taken a class in query letters and was looking for a book for a friend. This one is very helpful with examples to follow.

    I'm interested in freelancing, and queries scare the crap out of me. This book made the subject seem less frightening. As for the follow-through...well, I'm working on it.
