I have decided to begin a very exciting new series of interviews, which will be based roughly on the discontinued (but still available) “Agents & Editors” series that appeared in Poets & Writers magazine. (I’ve mentioned this in past posts, but if you haven’t already subscribed to Poets & Writers I absolutely recommend that you do so. It’s essential reading for all aspiring writers.)
The goal of the interview series will be to provide writers with practical advice about the process of writing and getting published, as well as an inside look at the publishing industry.
This is where you come in. Please use the comment section to submit any questions you would like answered. I won’t make any promises, but will certainly take serious questions under serious consideration.
The first interview will take place in the next couple weeks, so send your questions soon. A clue about the interviewee: she’s a brilliant young editor at Random House who happens to work with a publishing legend.
On a separate note, I remain perpetually apologetic for the inconsistency of my posts. I was able to verbalize my struggle for the first time yesterday. On the one hand, I would like to keep the blogging process as organic as possible, absent the pressure of rigid scheduling. On the other, I want to provide quality content for you with at least some degree of regularity. So far the former sentiment has won out, and hence my constant regret! To be honest, I don’t know how some agents post every day and are still able to, you know, be agents. In any case, I appreciate your continued interest in what I have to say and hope that you’ll share your thoughts whenever you feel inspired to do so.
