What does it take to be an author? Literature and Books


Publishing insider talk with literary agent, Juliet Pickering from Blake Friedmann Agency http://buytickets.at/novelnights/257695

So you've written your book but are you prepared for your next steps towards publication? What do you need to know when submitting your manuscript? And are you prepared for everything that being a published author will bring?

Will you need to use social media? Do you have to market your books yourself? Are you ready for festivals and readings? Should you have more contacts? I

In this event, literary agent Juliet Pickering will discuss the expectations on the author, and what you can do to help yourself and your book. (It’s nowhere near as intimidating as it might seem, honest!).

Juliet Pickering worked for Waterstones as a bookseller and fiction buyer before starting at A P Watt in 2003, where she became an Associate Agent in 2007. Juliet joined Blake Friedmann in 2013, becoming Vice Head of the Book Department in 2017, and her authors have been shortlisted for Booker, Costa, and Guardian First Book Awards, won the Whitbread and Green Carnation Prizes and, in 2015, the prestigious French literary award Prix Femina Etranger.

Her fiction interests range from literary through to book club, and she enjoys commercial novels with fresh, contemporary and feminist central characters. She also represents many non-fiction writers across the board, including memoir, pop culture, social history, issues of gender and class, cookery and food writing, humour, and all sorts in-between.
