Of course you want to be there!
Here's the (working) description of our gig:
Author Jeff Somers discusses the role of agents in an author’s life: offering sage career advice, buying him drinks, telling him how smart he is, bailing him out of jail, telling him his writing is brilliant, helping him choose projects, mailing him checks, all while tormenting him on a near-daily basis. He’ll answer questions like ‛How terrifying is it when your agent invites you for cocktails out of the blue, for no reason?’ and ‛Do you ever do the math on just how little money your agent earns from your work?’ and ‛Are you trying to blink a plea for assistance using Morse Code right now but you never actually learned Morse Code so you have no idea what you’re saying?’Meanwhile, Jeff’s agent, Janet Reid will laugh merrily as he blinks out those pleas for help. She will reveal for the first time ever what feats of strength and magic rituals Jeff had to perform to secure representation. What she does when Jeff digs in his heels about plot twists, contract language, or wearing pants to this writing conference. You'll get insight into her perverse pleasure in tormenting Jeff about publicity, promotion, and living in New Jersey. And why the highest form of praise is being a character who gets killed not once but twice.
but, we need a title!
Here are some choices:
(1) What Could Possibly Go Wrong: Behind the Scenes of the Agent/Author Relationship
(2) Behind the Scenes of the Author/Agent Relationship: Jeff Somers Tells All, Janet Reid Corrects Him
(3) Luck and Liquor: Behind the Scenes of the Agent/Author Relationship
(4)Ways to Torment your Agent/Author by Writer/Agent; Jeff Somers and Janet Reid in conversation
if you have some suggestions for other options, PLEASE suggest them in the comments column.
If you have an opinion on which of the four is best, let me know.
The only proviso is that the title can not contain any mention of cocktails or booze. (I know, #3 mentions liquor.)
