Have you ever wondered how literary agents work and if they are still important and relevant in this new 2013 world of publishing? Gordon Warnock, a founding partner of Foreword Literary Agency, an expert in marketing and editing, was so interesting we decided to devote an entire program, instead of the clip we intended, to pick his brains about where publishing is going. Non-fiction comprises most of his list. He says that he is looking for projects in which the book is more of the means than the end. "Essentially, your book should relate to something bigger of which you are the expert, the one best fit to bring it to the page. I prefer to work with socially-responsible books that raise new issues or illuminate common issues in new ways. I love books with strong charity tie-ins and celebrities coming together to promote a good cause on a large scale." Warnock is one of several agents and publishers you can meet, submit to, in person at the great Florida Writer's Association Conference, October 17-20, 2013 at the Lake Mary Marriott, a great opportunity to network and learn the latest from established authors, publishers and agents. If you have ever thought of writing a book, this is an interview you don't want to miss and a conference bringing the best to Florida.

This Sunday's "The Book, With Earl Merkel" will feature a classic conversation with... Patrick J. Buchanan!-- but certainly NOT in his usual role as political pundit, but in his acknowledged expertise as a historian in his groundbreaking book, "Churchill, Hitler And The Unnecessary War: How Britain Lost Its Empire... And The West Lost The World." "The Book" will also present our "Welcome To Al Jazera" as the network debuts on American cable, in an arguably hilarious spoof of the "Al Jazz News You Can Expect."
Literary agent Elizabeth Kracht contributes an "audio essay" suitably titled "How To Seduce An Agent"... so, you ask, THIS is what agents talk about? It is, indeed--and you'll be floor-rolling laughing at her Tale Of Submission(s).
All this and MORE, plus our regular "'Over The Transom' By Rich Le Cropane, and the Continuing Exploits Of Nobel Prize Winning Physicist/Revenge-Seeking Doctor Stephen... ... 9 p.m. Sunday (Aug. 25). "The Book, With Earl Merkel" on AOTA Global Radio Network.
