Maybe it’s because the sun stays out so much longer, but I’m always more productive in the summer. It’s a great time to start acting on your goal to build or expand a writing career. And what better way to start than by reading Otaku Journalism, the ONLY guide written specifically for journalists with geeky inclinations?
Starting now, Otaku Journalism is 50% off on Amazon. I’ve dropped its price from $5.99 to $2.99, effective immediately. The sale will last until next Wednesday, 7/23.
Some recent praise:
“I’ll be honest, I’ve done tons of bits and pieces of writing over the years, and lots of blogging but nothing has really stuck for me, as I realized before and while reading Lauren Orsini’s fabulous book Otaku Journalism. I feel pretty good recommending this book to anyone, male or female, otaku or not. If you’re passionate about SOMETHING, this is by far the ideal book for you to get.” —BJ Wanlund
“Being in this position where I feel like I’m on the edge of the cliff on making the decision to do fandom freelancing, Orsini reassures with proven tactics that I could do just that.With helpful information and examples, it’s a go-to for those willing to take the plunge too!” — Rachel C.
“Honestly, this book should be given out to anyone who’s majoring in journalism. After reading this, I feel like I’m a journalist. There’s everything from pitching, ethics, events, and idea creation. Basically covers everything you need to start a blog or a beat.” — Kevin Raposo
