Breakout Session

8 (or more) Ways to Keep Your Agent and Editor Happy

You did it! You signed with an agent or got a book contract and now you’re wondering what’s next. How do you keep a healthy relationship with the most important gatekeepers of your work? Maybe you’ve been working with an agent or editor for a while, but would like fresh ideas to maintain a good rapport.

In this workshop, you’ll learn from a multi-published author who has developed a strong reputation with her agent and editors. She’ll share the secrets of what they appreciate most (based on their direct feedback). You’ll gain answers to the following questions:

  • How often should I communicate and with whom?
  • What type of editing am I expected to do?
  • How much marketing should I plan on my own?
  • What is the number one way I can make my editor happy?
