Fiona Spencer Thomas is a literary agent and book publicist who works with a range of authors on both fiction and non-fiction. In this podcast episode, she talks about how she got started as an agent, what a literary agent does for her clients, and how her own passion drives her choices.
It was interesting to talk about striking the balance between creativity and nit-picking attention to detail - between helping writers create better books and handling the fine points of royalties and contracts. And, in particular, the need to tread a cautious road alongside your authors, because everyone's different, from the diffident author with no self-confidence to the bull in a china shop who needs protecting from themself!
