  1. There are so many more who write fiction that can be added to this list, myself included, but also: Jessica Scott, Alyssa Day, Caro Carson, and Nika Rhone. Several of us have even been featured in Military Spouse’s Book Club. If you’re looking for books written by military authors or spouses, check it out.

  2. There are, after all, some damaging points to freelancing.
    One necessary level is that when you work as a freelance
    paralegal you will not be eligible for the types of benefits that you would have
    in working for a regulation firm or a non-public attorney.

    When you feel that such “perks” as basic medical insurance and different such benefits
    are important, freelancing will not provide
    you with these benefits.
