New Release: Copywriting with Rayne Hall

Nicholas C. Rossis

You may recall my mentioning early this year a new release by Rayne Hall and yours truly titledCopywriting: Get Paid to Write Promotional Texts. This is Rayne’s Writer’s Craft Book number 34 (!) and, obviously, one of her best 😉

Seriously, though, working with Rayne was one of my best writing experiences. She’s a seasoned pro and a wonderfully supportive writer who’s often helped me with her tips and advice. I believe that the book will be an extremely helpful tool for anyone interested in freelance writing, distilling everything I’ve learned so far about SEO copywriting.

You can use this guide as a self-study course in copywriting. Each chapter contains information, professional tips, cautions about novice mistakes to avoid, and even assignments. If you do read it and enjoy it, please consider leaving a review.
