I love all of this! I’m just gathering the balls to start diving into freelancing. I NEED a side gig to help support myself and four children. I waffled around too much last year (but was also working on a book with a publishing contract with another local author). Realistically, freelancing is where I need to invest effort at least until the kids have all graduated.

I have at least 3 other books in the works, and was planning on self-punishing on Amazon vs shopping them around. I’m wondering what you think about self publishing vs the traditional publishing route?

Definitely going to be reading the articles you linked here!
