Interviews with Publishing Professionals



7 Questions is a series of interviews conducted with some of today’s top literary agents, editors, public relations experts, audiobook narrators, and more. Every publishing professional faces  7 questions and I have not edited their responses in any way. All of these folks are extremely cool for doing this and I cannot thank them enough. Check back frequently to see who will be the next publishing professional to face the 7 Questions and click the links below to read past interviews.

First, here's a word of caution.

Check out this guest post by my agent Dr. Uwe Stender and this guest post by our old friend literary agent Joanna Volpe.

Here's a fun piece on How (NOT) to Make a Lasting Impression on a Literary Agent and here's the story of How I Met my Agent.
