Are you curious about video game journalism? How about freelancing? Or BOTH? You’re in luck! Dan Amrich and I have teamed up to offer you a huge discount on the Kindle versions of our respective how-to guides on nabbing a career writing about games for a living! Both books complement each other well and are packed with helpful tips and advice for aspiring game journalists and writers!
Yesterday, I joined former game journo editor and Critical Path author Dan Amrich for a video interview on Google Hangout with the rad folks at GameZone. We had a fun time chatting about how we got our start as freelancers in the game industry and tackled a range of questions related to writing, freelancing, and game journalism. It was a great time and a fun way to promote our books. If you’re interested in writing about games at all, check out my new book Up Up Down Down Left WRITE: The Freelance Guide to Video Game Journalism which is heavily focused on the freelance end of things. Dan also has a great book that’s been out for a while now called Critical Path: How to Review Videogames for a Living, which is more of a general tome focused on the art of reviewing games and working on staff at game publications.
Oh hey, before I forget, here’s the link to the video interview chat!
