Episode 6: The Book Deal
How do you get from a proposal to a book deal? What do you need for a proposal? What’s the process of talking to agents and publishers to get a contract?
Today, we talk to Jen Linnan at Linnan Literary Management about all of these questions — and more! As an agent who runs her own agency and deals exclusively with comics, Jen has the inside scoop.
Alison Wilgus is a writer and cartoonist; her comics have been published by First Second, Dark Horse, DC, Del Rey and Nickelodeon Magazine, and she’s currently working on a graphic novel duology with Tor.
Gina Gagliano works in comics publishing, and has worked with organizations like the Brooklyn Book Festival, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, and the Toronto Comics Art Festival to coordinate programming and media.
