My guest in this episode is Amy Collins who has been in the book industry since 1991. She has been a book buyer for a chain of bookstores in NY, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. She gained extensive experience as a book marketer, and now she is a literary agent with Talcott Notch. She is also a USA TODAY and WALL STREET JOURNAL bestselling author. We have a great conversation about fiction for young adults, sci-fi, fantasy, and historical novels. I asked what she looks for in a book she decides to take on and pitch to publishers, and she provides great advice to writers who want to pursue the traditional publishing route with the assistance of a literary agent.

Going North Podcast
Don’t assume that you will be a successful author without time, talent and or money. Today’s featured USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author is publishing industry expert, Amy Collins. Amy and I talk about what it takes to become a successful author and more!!! Key Takeaways: Over 1.3 million new books came out in 2018. 4 million ISBN numbers have been generated in 2018. No book has become a bestselling book without some kind of help. No one is exempt from the hustle requirement when it comes to marketing and selling your books. Constantly get the word out about your book consistently. Time, money and or talent are a must with writing. Any 2 of these with daily consistent effort can help you become a successful author. Have a good growing relationship with your readers and be willing to grow your readership. People who call themselves lazy are just really afraid. Don’t wait for the perfect moment to ask for what you want. Ask or make an offer at least once a day. Seek to become a successful author and not just a bestselling author. “Being afraid is not an unusual thing. We all have fears.” “Do not build your team based on who you like. Build your team based on what you need.” “Don’t say yes to things unthinkingly.” Amy’s Site: https://www.newshelves.com/ Amy’s Books: https://www.amazon.com/Amy-Collins/e/B001K8G8KW/ref=dp_byline_cont_ebooks_1 The opening track is titled "New Perspective" by the magnanimous chill-hop master, Marcus D (@marcusd).
