Book Break with Barry Lancet, Author of “The Spy Across the Table”
Barry Lancet was a veteran book editor at Kodansha International before making the leap from aspiring expat writer to published author at Simon & Schuster, where he will be releasing his fourth book in his “Jim Brodie” series – The Spy Across the Table.
Along with sharing some insightful views on the do’s and don’ts of marketing contemporary fiction, Lancet will discuss the combination of persistence and luck that enabled him to “jump the gap” and hook a major agent, landing him a multi-book contract with a major publisher. Why is it that some writers of fiction succeed, while others fail? Come to the FCCJ on May 16 and hear Lancet talk about the drive, the spark, and other “secret ingredients” that put him on the track to success.
