Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Susan Hawk, an agent at The Bent Agency. I represent books written for kids: picture books, chapter books, middle grade and young adult. Susan Says is going to be a place to talk about publishing, finding and working with an agent, how to build a career in writing. I come from book marketing so I'll write about that too. My clients are amazing, and I hope that they and others from around book publishing will join me here as well.
And books, of course. I’m cooking up a post right now about I Capture the Castle, a book that stole my heart a few years ago; a book so good that I practically weep when I think of the years that I didn’t know about it.
I want to keep things focused, but I probably won’t be able to help periodically waxing about my love for Downton Abbey or gardening or sandwiches either.
And questions! – I would love to answer your questions, so please send them my way.
See? We have so much to talk about!
