Big Boo Five Questions with Lisa Jackson

This week on the fifth installment of Five Questions – a six-week bonus series of The Big Boo Cast – we’re talking with Lisa Jackson, who just so happens to be our literary agent. Lisa works in Colorado Springs with Alive Literary Agency, and I know Melanie would agree that, in so many ways, she is the wind beneath our writing wings. You might even convince us to sing a duet about how much we love her. On today’s episode, we talk about how publishing has changed, what agents and publishers are looking for in a book, and Lisa’s favorite parts of being a literary agent.

We’ll be back later this week with our regular episode – Episode 230 – and then next Monday we’ll have another episode of Five Questions with one of our very first friends from Ye Olden Days of Blogging – and one of our favorite writers – the delightful Annie Downs.

Hope y’all enjoy!
