Popular Talk Show Host, Lydia Aswolf welcomes Literary Agent Jessica Sinsheimer of the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary agency to the show! The Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency has a strong commitment to serious self-help and spiritual books, with titles that have sold more than 100,000 copies in the U.S. and throughout Europe and Asia. At least five of the agency’s cookbook authors have won the prestigious Julia Child Award. The agency also has a strong affinity for narrative nonfiction, and represents world-renowned naturalists, award-winning journalists, and memoirists. They also represent books on lifestyle, illustration and design, many of which have become classics. Jessica says: "I wish I could take authors into the office—a sort of field trip, with free coffee and souvenir letter openers—so that you could see the kind of consideration we give everyone’s work. We read every query carefully, we discuss many of them, we consider a million factors that have nothing to do with whether or not you have what it takes to be a writer. Sometimes we have something too similar to your work; sometimes we just don’t feel we’re the very best agency, of the many, many agents out there, to champion this project. Have faith that we do this out of love of writing, and take our responsibility toward the future of books very seriously. We’re here not just to sell your work, but to make it—and you, as an author—all that you can be."
