Did not ever think that I would get such a huge response to my Help Wanted post but you guys surprised me, yet again!
Caitlin Spivey whose cover letter was witty and personal. Her resume was even better!
While reading her resume and putting together a list of the candidates I wanted to speak with, I realized I approached the hiring of this intern the same way I approach my potential clients. It's not just about the query or the book. There needs to be a connection between us if a working relationships is going to work.
But her editorial experience is what really won me over. I knew I need someone who could help me tame the inordinately large pile of manuscripts I need to review for clients and potential clients with a critical eye toward marketability as well as content. That's not always easy to find but it looks like, in Cait, I have.

New Assistant: Caitlin Spivey
E-Pub Agent extraordinaire and avid coffee-drinker, Saritza is as short and simple as this paragraph. Give her a good paranormal or fantasy romance, a giant mug of strong Cuban coffee and a corner to put her feet up to read, and she's one happy camper!
