A Good Agent is Hard to Find
I’ve always said the wrong agent is worse than no agent and cautioned aspiring writers against leaping into representation. I’ve heard so many horror stories of authors who were ripped off by the person who was supposed to be in their corner.
But the right agent is like having a superhero at your side. Fortunately, my superhero is Natasha Kern. She finds the right publishing home for my work, guides me through the legal maze of contracts and advocates for me at every step along the way. When it’s time to put together a new proposal, she’s a creative sounding board for my ideas. For Natasha, it’s more than selling the next book. She’s got her eye on where my writing career is heading and how she can help me get there. I know she gives all her clients that same nuturing care.
This year, she’s been a godsend as I made the transition from Emily Bryan to Mia Marlowe and a new publishing house (or two! More about my exciting strongnew/strong venture in future blog post…). Natasha is incredible. That’s why I’m so pleased to share that she has reached a professional milestone of her own.
Natasha Kern recently sold her 1000th book.
Let that sink in for a minute. It’s a huge accomplishment. And since she passed that marker, she’s sold two more in a publishing climate that can fairly be described as brutal. I’m totally in awe of her and so blessed to be part of her family of clients.
If you’re a writer, you’ll appreciate her Writer’s Corner where she shares some articles on her ideas about fiction and what makes for an engaging read that “works in all the worlds.” If you’re on Facebook, be sure to drop by Natasha’s profile and congratulate her on her 1000th sale!
Is there someone in your life who’s helped you reach a goal? I’d love to hear about that person and how he or she has impacted you.
