There are many facets to my job as a literary agent, as it’s my life all-rolled-into-one. Everyone has heard me state (numerous) times that a literary agent needs to love books, like meeting/working with their authors, and be able to handle (and hopefully enjoy) the large amount of time it takes to do the job.
However, there’s another added benefit – surprise visits with my authors at the most random times. Whether it’s me accidentally showing up in their cities, or them coming to MN, it’s always a pleasure. The time spent hanging out in-person can confirm an already good working partnership, as well as add to the overall value of the larger publishing experience.
That’s all I wanted to say, time to get back to work. 🙂
