Authors on the Air host welcomes literary agent, editor and author Elizabeth (Liz) Kracht to the studio.
ABOUT LIZ: "I completed two concurrent internships. The first was with Hunter House Publishers—now an imprint of Turner Publishing—specializing in the areas of self-help, health, sexuality and relationships, personal growth, and more. The second internship was with literary agency Kimberley Cameron & Associates (KC&A). Internships complete, I was offered positions by both companies though KC&A was a better, long-term fit for me.
In addition to my work as a literary agent with KC&A, I have worked as a freelance developmental editor for She Writes Press—and through other mediums—where some of the projects I've worked on have won awards or have placed in book award contests. I have participated in countless writers conferences, both domestic and international, and I was a founding member of the Kauai Writers Conference and Reputation Books."
ABOUT THE AUTHOR'S CHECKLIST: An Indispensable Guide for All Writers in All Genres The bad news: even really good manuscripts have weak spots that are enough to garner rejections from agents and publishers. The good news: most of these problems are easy to fix — once the writer sees and understands them. After several years of evaluating manuscripts, literary agent Elizabeth Kracht noticed that many submissions had similar problems, so she began to make a list of the pitfalls. The Author’s Checklist offers her short, easy-to-implement bites of advice, illustrated by inspiring — and cautionary — real-world examples. Most aspiring authors yearn for a friend in book publishing. The Author’s Checklist is just that.
