    This podcast captured the many puzzle pieces of information I’ve been collecting and assembled them into clear picture of how this business actually works. The always impressive and now even more appealing SecretAgentBri recently plucked my pb manuscript out of the infamous slush pile. Obviously I’m hopeful I will get to experience the rest of the journey you so clearly described. Until then I will continue to tune in and share this fabulous resource. Many thanks, Ingrid Boydston

    This podcast captured the many puzzle pieces of information I’ve gathered and, viola! Suddenly I can see the whole picture of how this business actually works. Thank you for adding the human voice, far less intimidating this way. The always impressive and now more appealing than ever SecretAgentBri recently plucked my pb manuscript from the legendary slush pile to request more. Obviously I’m hopeful to get to experience the rest of the journey you so clearly described. Until then I will continue to tune in and share this excellent resource. Many thanks! Ingrid Boydston

    This was an entertaining show for sure, but i feel it failed to demonstrate what an agent does for their cut beyond the initial sale, nor did it go indepth with the business side of things.

    i’d like to see a part 2 with more focus on money and less on coffee at starbucks
