Why I’m Retiring the Web Writer’s Guide
- The focus on Web writers was too limiting, especially given that most information in the e-book could apply equally well to other freelancers.
- The Web Writer’s Guide brand was supposed to result in a series of e-books. Instead there were only two — this one and a workbook-only version of this one (which will also be discontinued). Moving forward we will still have a series of e-books. But they will be published under The Query-Free Freelancer brand to tie into my first print book for freelance writers.
- Frankly, the e-book was due for an update anyway.
The information in this e-book will still be available in the future, but in several shorter e-books under the new brand. The content will be edited, updated, and expanded — just broken up into specific interest areas. The forms and worksheets might be released in workbook form, although I will likely sell those as very low-priced individual downloads or small download packs that group together similar resources.
When Will it Retire?
The e-book as-is will only be available through the end of November.
While the e-book will no longer be available for sale after that time, if you previously purchased it but never downloaded it, your download link should still work. If you’ve used your download link already, it has now expired.
In that case, if you lose your e-book you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org from the email address you used to pay, or you can email me your name and the transaction ID you received when you made your purchase. If you do that, I can reactivate your download link or manually send you the files.

Several new e-books are in the works under The Query-Free Freelancer brand. Two are expected to be released before the end of this year. Those two e-books will not contain content previously found in the retiring e-book. That content will be released in a series of short e-books due out in 2013.
