Join us Wednesday on Copper Robot as we talk to Kristine Kathryn Rusch, an expert on surviving and thriving as a freelancer.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 28, 6 pm Pacific/Second Life Time
As the Great Recession grinds on, and opportunities for full-time employment remain scarce, more and more people are pulling up their socks and going into business for themselves. Our next guest on Copper Robot is an expert on the subject of self-employment — she’s been her own boss for almost all the past 30-plus years, as a writer of science fiction and nonfiction, publisher, and owner of a small retail shop. For more than a year, she’s been posting her tips and tricks for surviving and thriving as a freelancer at the The Freelancer’s Survival Guide.
The Guide isn’t just for writers — far from it. It’s for accountants and architects and retail owners and anybody else going into business for themselves. It covers a wide range of subjects, including finances, negotiations, time management, managing employees, health, and staying sane.
Kristine writes mystery, romance, science fiction, and fantasy, under her own name as well as Kristine Grayson for romance, and Krist Nelscott for mystery.
She is the former editor of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science fiction. Before that, she and Dean Wesley Smith started and ran Pulphouse Publishing, a science fiction and mystery press in Eugene. She lives and works on the Oregon coast.
