Watch the full interview with my lit agent:
Have you ever wanted to write a book? Get a book published? Tell your story to more than you diary? This was the secret dream I had when Charlie asked me “Do you want to write a book?” This week on Are You Ready, I sat down with my lit agent, Charlie Brotherstone, and asked him all the questions that many would-be authors are curious about:
How do I get noticed by a lit agent?
What goes into the perfect book proposal?
What kind of offer can a first time author expect?
But more important than all of that has been Charlie’s partnership. He’s been a mentor, protector, and even a therapist, at times, and through it all, my Agent.
For this toast,
2 pieces of good bread
2 tbsp EVOO
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chopped leafy greens (I used kale and dandelion)
1 tbsp doenjang
1 cup lupino beans
4 cups vegetable broth
I toasted up some really good bread and then braised some greens (kale and dandelion) with garlic, doenjang, lupini beans, and vegetable broth for about 40 minutes. I finished the braised greens with a bit of lemon zest at the very end, before scooping some over my toast with a zap of black pepper and a little EVOO. It was PERFECT with an icy cold beverage and my book (Being & Nothingness).
