Agency Lessons: A video interview

Lots of fun stuff happened last week, so I've got maybe my biggest lesson post yet.

I gave my first interview as an agent and discovered that I am a dork on camera. Blame it on my theater background, but I can't answer a question without turning it into a mini performance. If you can stomach 45 minutes of me being a bit over the top, there is actually a lot info here. The Writer's Discussion Group asked some timely questions about working with an agent, self-publishing and the future roles of agents.

Check out the video evidence of my geekitude. While you're there, be sure to take a peak at all the other great interviews +John Ward has posted on his channel. There is tons of information about writing, marketing and everything in between.

In other fun news, I have been promoted from Agent Apprentice/PR Specialist to Jr. Agent/PR Team Leader.

Uh, what does that mean?

It means that I'm officially flying solo in the agenting world (but with my lovely co-agents only a quick email away). The change to PR Team Leader is based on some really exciting work going on at the agency. We have an amazing team of Summer Interns who are killing it right now, planning blog tours, author contests and all kinds of fun stuff for our clients. As the Team Leader I'm guiding the troops as we help our clients build awareness and grow sales. Seriously, this agency rocks!

So that's it for now. If you watch the video and think of any questions that didn't get answered, feel free to add your questions in the comment box and I'll answer them here. Have a great Monday!
