Hi Robert.

I'm not specifically and "Agent."  This seemed the best fit within the categories available to describe myself.  I am actually and Author's Assistant.  What does an Author’s Assistant do? I can do so much, but I will attempt to be brief and concise.

The Manuscript: help oversee and coordinate the process, organize source material, obtain necessary permissions to use the work of others, research potential publishers, fact check.

Manuscript to Printed Book: help in understanding the process and planning the budget/timetable; help coordinate and oversee the process; help find other professional resources like a book cover designer, typesetter, editor, indexer, proofreader, and copywriter; help in setting up a publishing business, getting the ISBN, help with printing and distribution.

Book Marketing: help find professional resources - publicist, photographer, web designer, copywriter.


Those are some of the services that are provided with some descriptives. Other services include helping with traditional PR and internet marketing.


As far as word count or working with fiction or non-fiction, it really does not matter.  I can help you along any part of your journey.


I look forward to more communication between us.


Thanks very much

Ha ha that is hilarious! I think I must have an identical twin or a doppelganger. A couple of years ago, a friend of mine was convinced he saw me driving down a street in a city where I was living, but I was at work in my office at the time! I must catch this mysterious woman...
