PJ Aitken, also known as Paul Aitken or even P. J. Aitken, is the owner of Freelance With Us and the author of The Online Writer’s Companion, which was published by Allworth Press in October, 2016. PJ Aitken started this site in anticipation of the release of his book and the purpose of the site was to serve as a platform for said book.
He hired a few writers to fill-up the site with content, he received submissions from other writers and before long the site had grown into a worthwhile project of its own. These days, Aitken still uses Freelance With Us to talk about his book and to provide tips to freelance writers everywhere. However, he also works hard on growing this website as an independent project.

As of 2017, he is still freelancing on a full-time basis. However, he also owns a string of websites and has published several nonfiction and fiction titles under this name and several others.

Freelance With Us was never supposed to be my site. At least, not entirely. I created this site in anticipation of my book, The Online Writer’s Companion, being released. I had already published fiction under two different pen names and had typical author websites for both of them (including David Jester). This was a new […]
