That deliciously irreverent book I promised earlier this year, which cajoles conscientious newcomers into a fulfilling life as a freelancer, is now available on Lulu. It’s called The Human Freelancer.

It’s the culmination of two years writing and many many more years of enlivening experience, finding my feet as an happy, honest freelancer. In it you’ll find 132 pages of insightful advice, the kind I wish someone had shared with me when I began as a freelance copywriter and event photographer in Leeds.

In case you missed the blurb about The Human Freelancer book, here’s a brief synopsis:

Self-help business books perpetuate the myth that success is relentless growth and more of everything means progress. They teach you about bookkeeping and market research – things you might need to do of course, but let’s face it they’re f**king boring.


The Human Freelancer is your antidote; stuffed full of empathy and emotional support for vulnerable newbies to self-employment like you. Whether you’re freelance, part-time, a contractor or tradesperson – read this book if you’re sensitive and brave and want to do the right thing on a happy journey of fulfilment and self-improvement. A dark sense of humour and high pain-tolerance will also maximise your reading enjoyment.

It’ll soon be available on Amazon too, where people can post their honest feedback about what they thought of The Human Freelancer.

Now, there’s a thought.
