Author Sarah Alderson tells us how she got an agent (and what she’d have done differently, looking back)

I love this new series by Sarah Alderson (Hunting Lila, Fated, The Sound) – answering her fan’s questions on informative, fun YouTube videos. Here she is explaining how she got her agent – something we all find fascinating to hear about from writers!

The thing to remember if you’re a writer, which Sarah stresses here too, is that these days it doesn’t matter if you’re traditionally published like she is, or self-published like me, right now, as an author you are still going to have to do the same amount of work to market yourself. Of course, being signed to a publisher is BRILLIANT, and will always be the pinnacle of success but don’t think that means you get off lightly. Oh, hell, NO.

Start building your brand now!

If you’re a reader and you have any more questions for Sarah, or me actually, don’t be afraid to drop us a line! We’re all in it for the love of books, BOOKS and more books!!!
