Lacy-Lalene-LynchLacy Lalene Lynch of Dupree/Miller & Associates will be conducting a Writing Texan webinar on September 13, 2013.

Lacy Lalene Lynch is a literary agent with Dupree/Miller & Associates, an innovative agency representing bestselling authors, thought leaders, and celebrities from around the world. She has worked on the development and branding of multiple New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling books, as well as the packaging of several TV and film properties. Dupree/Miller clients include Dr. Phil, Maria Shriver, the late Stephen Covey, and the bestselling book and upcoming film, An Invisible Thread. She specializes in nonfiction, fiction, young adult, and book to film with an emphasis on brand building.

Lacy describes her job this way: “A literary agent is more than a deal maker. They should be your best friend, your biggest advocate, your strategic partner, and your soldier on-call when it comes down to tough decisions. If you want a client for life, you have to give your life to the client.”

She is currently working on film negotiations with Weinstein Company, Sony, TDJ Enterprises, Sokolow Entertainment, Riche Productions, Derek Britt Entertainment and more, and has had two books in the top 5 on the New York Times Bestseller list in the last four months.

This Writing Texan webinar will feature 30 minutes of exclusive access with Ms. Lynch, who will help you get a clear picture of how to assess whether you and your book will benefit from a professional agent. Not sure whether you are ready for an agent? Or even what an agent does? Ms. Lynch will offer a concise presentation featuring:

  1. What a literary agent can do for you
  2. What to look for in an agent
  3. How to avoid choosing a bad one.

Following the presentation, Ms. Lynch will take questions from participants.
