Average freelance earnings are £20,000, so I figure I’ve got something to say about how to make big money as a freelance.

I’m no Piers Morgan or Andrew Neil but I’ve had 30 successful years trading as Don’s Hard News and now I am living my dream, two minutes’ walk from the beach in a beautiful rural location.

The Bounty Writer tells the story of how I started out as an independent freelance journalist and includes valuable lessons about how to keep the money rolling in – and you don’t have to be a household name.

I am nothing special. If I can do it, so can you!
