Welcome to the Dear Book Nerd podcast, a bi-weekly show that answers YOUR questions about life, love, and literature! My special guest co-host this week is the wise and wonderful Brooks Sherman, literary agent.

If you're looking to get published or are just interested in the topic, be sure to give it a listen!
