An Agent’s Perspective: An Interview with Julie Gwinn


Today’s guest is agent Julie Gwinn from The Seymour Agency. With a decade in publishing and another two in marketing, she has a great perspective on what moves an author’s career forward.

Julie gives us lots of great advice about how to get from the end of a first draft to a published book. We talk about how to create your best chances for a successful hybrid career, what a query letter is, how to build a great book proposal, what a simultaneous submission is, how to submit, and so much more!

Find Julie as well as other agents and editors and what they’re looking for on Query Manager and Manuscript Wish List (MSWL), and find many of them on Twitter and other social media. You can find Julie at The Seymour Agency as well.
