Happy New Year everyone!
Have you ever had the experience where you buy a certain make and model car and suddenly you see them everywhere you go? Chances are pretty good that it isn’t because everyone else suddenly bought the car like you. It is more likely because you are more aware of that particular car.
Why do I bring up this little analogy? Well, it seems like everyone I know is suddenly getting an agent. I know that isn’t actually true but I have certainly seen a number of people make that relationship a part of their careers. I’m pretty sure I’m noticing it more because it has been on my mind a great deal lately.
So, because it is on my mind a lot and because two shows in a row about authors finding agents couldn’t possibly be enough, I talk to LDCrichton about her success in getting an agent on today’s episode. You might remember Leah from an earlier episode where we talked about Wattpad. Leah is a great guest as always and I really enjoyed our conversation and I hope you do too.
And, as always, I would like to invite you to leave me any comments, questions, tips or any other feedback you might have.
And before we begin the show, I would like to remind you that if you have any questions or comments, you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. If I don’t know the answer to your question, I will find the person best suited to answer it and play it on the show.
