BookBaby president Brian Felsen recently interviewed editor Jody Rein and agent Katharine Sands.
Sands, a literary agent in New York City, recently published Making the Perfect Pitch: How to Catch a Literary Agent’s Eye. Katharine has been guest speaker on writing and publishing topics for The American Society of Journalists and Authors and The New York State Council on the Arts, and was a faculty member at the 2006 Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop.
Rein founded Jody Rein Books in late 1994 and has worn many hats in the publishing world; she was an executive editor with divisions of Big 6 publishers Random House and HarperCollins in New York; ghostwrote a critically lauded work; taught at University-level courses and spoken at scores of conferences and classes.
In this clip, Sands discusses how the author can “make a perfect pitch” when promoting their work to agents and readers.
