I have the best agent in the world: Laurie Abkemeier, a literary agent with DeFiore and Company who also reps Marley & Me’s John Grogan. A former editor with Simon & Schuster and now an agent for over seven years, Laurie has wisdom from all sides of the writing fence. Also fun? Laurie’s new Tumblr blog, which now features an entertaining section called Inside the Author’s Studio.
This month, to celebrate the launch of the new paperback edition of Meeting Your Half-Orange, she featured me! Here are my answers (based on James Lipton’s Questionnaire which was based on the Proust questionnaire): Inside the Author’s Studio with Amy Spencer.
And if you’re a writer or want to be? Then you must download Laurie’s FREE “Agent Obvious” iPhone App which is jam-packed with her “Agent Obvious” insights about all things book publishing: query letters, proposals, editing, writing, contracts, marketing and more.
Now, I hope I didn’t embarrass myself with my choice of superpower or favorite sitcom…
