For those interested in a career in publishing: “Learning to work at a job takes a lot... It’s an understanding of the corporate environment, learning how to effectively communicate, and seeing what you can do to stand out, while fitting in.” #PubTip bookendsliterary.com/2019/05/22/sec…

"Baggage is okay. It’s good to share it. It’s good for the new person in your life to know what might trigger bad feelings. And it’s good for you and your new relationship to build up a trust that can overcome that baggage." #WednesdayWisdom #PubTip bookendsliterary.com/2019/04/23/the…

Communication is a two-way street and asking how an agent communicates is a good first step to starting a relationship, but having the ability to discuss what’s working and not working is what forms the strongest relationships. #PubTip #AuthorAgent bookendsliterary.com/2018/04/24/com…

We know that it's sometimes tempting to not query and just self-publish, but remember that agents can offer invaluable advice for planning a career in both print & e-book, and can help you move forward. Send those queries! #pubtip

Writers! If you can make time to write every day, you can also make time to develop your social media presence every day. 20-30 minutes is all it could take. Make it a priority! #pubtip #amwriting

#PubTip time for #amwriting and #amquerying authors:
We don't suggest submitting to only one agent at a time. Not only are you limiting your chances of gaining representation, but you're prolonging your own journey to publication.

BookEnds will respond to every single application, at every stage in the hiring process, but we know that isn’t always the case. Especially for larger companies.

So keep your chin up. Apply widely. To houses and agencies, scouts and magazines. If you want to be in publishing, you will eventually find the right position. Continue to put yourself out there, because it will happen. #pubtip #jobtip #publishing #internship #interns
