The Professional Freelancer

The Professional Freelancer by Rory Scherer

After being laid off at my latest company that fell victim to insider fraud, and the job market at its lowest point in years, I decided to follow the advice of my self-made millionaire friend and become 'The Professional Freelancer'. Spiraling out of control, I found myself involved in several extremely dangerous situations that strangely all seem to be connected involving the mafia, a Korean street gang, a white-collar crime, and masterminding the annual euchre championships at a senior citizens retirement home. 
The Professional Freelancer is a humorous ebook that was not written in a traditional format. It was written from the protagonist’s point-of-view. He is talking directly to you; the reader. 

I hope you have as much fun reading The Professional Freelancer as I did writing it. 


4.0 out of 5 stars WittyFebruary 24, 2015
This review is from: The Professional Freelancer (Kindle Edition)
"She had the physical appearance of Aunt Jemima, the soul of Aretha Franklin, and the comedic personality of Robin Williams. Now that I think about it, I think I just described Queen Latifah."

I'll admit, the cover did nothing to impress me. I thought I'd be in for a truly boring book I had to force myself through. But this was surprisingly good. This is a perfect example of don't judge a book by it's cover. This is 'mostly' well written, witty, funny and action filled. You really feel bad for this guy. He got dealt a bad hand at life and things got worse. This book read like a confusing twist and plays out like a decent comedic action movie. Everything adds up in the end but to see it fall in place and connect makes for a great read.

The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars, is the editing. It's not bad editing, and the book reads well.. it's the use of the word 'as'. The author over uses this word and I got tired of seeing it.. Like.. He woke early, as he was unable to sleep. Over use of a word annoys me. Other than that, this is a fantastic read. Fun and well worth picking up! I look forward to reading more by this author.
