Q4U: Got Any Advice For Me?
I was sitting here thinking about how much time I spend dispensing my opinions and worth-every-penny-you-paid-for it advice on this blog. And how much time I spend on the phone with clients, giving advice and offering guidance for their careers.
And for just a wee little moment there, I found myself thinking, I am just so tired. Don’t worry, I’ll get rested up this weekend. But isn’t it time someone else dispensed the advice for a change?
It’s your turn. Be Dr. Laura or Dear Abby or Dave Ramsey or… (not sure who else gives advice these days), and I’ll be the hapless caller or letter-writer:
Dear Advice Giving Guru,
I’m a literary agent and I need advice. How do I serve authors better? How do I deal with the changing publishing industry? How do I make my blog better? How do I find good clients? How do I deal with the ever-increasing volume of queries? Please don’t tell me to just keep doing what I’m doing. I really need your help. So give me whatever you’ve got. I’m listening.
All Out of Wisdom
And just so we’re clear, I’ll be back to my regular advice-giving ways next week. Have a good weekend!
Rachelle Gardner, Literary Agent
