“The Literary Lobbyist” Dawn Michelle Hardy has worked in the book publishing industry for more than 10 years as a book publicist with her own agency, Dream Relations PR, and as an agent with Serendipity Literary Agency. On this episode of Support is Sexy podcast, Dawn teaches a masterclass on traditional book publishing, gives us all a seat at the table and shares what you need to know as an author to write a captivating book proposal, and what the process REALLY looks like from getting your book deal to getting your book on the book shelf. (PLUS: Why the “big advance” is fool’s paradise!)
