Excerpts from the interview:

"She is always dancing, so we were lucky enough to get her to slow down for a bit to talk about her remarkable life."

Linda Langton runs Langtons International Agency, a boutique literary agency, specializing in non fiction, commercial and literary fiction and young adult, and Book Marketing International, which helps authors through all stages of publishing - from an idea to a finished book and then helps authors sell their books both commercially or through self publishing. If that weren't enough, she has just launched Langton's International Memoir, a ghostwriting service that matches a professional writer or editor to help people leave a legacy for their families or a book for their business, as she says,"we help people write their book in a way that both reflects their personal style and connects with their target audience."

Now you see why we say she is always dancing.
Listening to Linda is inspirational. She knows her industry and has successfully guided writers through it for the past fifteen years. She is a soft-spoken woman who lives in New York, by way of Great Britain and Australia. We think we learned more about the ins-and-outs of the current state of the publishing industry in our two-hour conversation than we ever knew - and we've been writers for as long as we can remember.

"I love books. I love going to bookstores and the feel of books in my hands. I I think, despite all the electronic conveniences traditional books still mean something. These are still my first love......

......I am a very positive person and believe that the glass is three-quarters full. Life's a wonderful journey and you learn as you go along, but you always, always move forward. You have to keep dancing!" ......
......Prior to coming to America, Linda spent many years in Australia. With her partner, she co-founded The Ink Group, Pty Ltd. From a $5,000 start up this $50 million international calendar, book, and greeting card company had offices in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and the United Kingdom. From producing 3000 greeting cards a year, including The Far Side, Recycled Paper Greetings, Boynton, Star Wars, Monty Python and more, and over 230 calendars a year, the Ink Group's products were sold throughout the world. It also introduced Linda to the ins-and-outs of publishing......

......Linda was the New South Wales Business Woman of the Year, inducted into The Australian Business Women's Hall of Fame, and is a member of the International Women's Forum, and Women's Forum of New York......

......Over the years, Linda has successfully represented a wide range of clients. Recently, she was responsible for selling the book Trumbo, upon which the award-winning film of the same name was based......

......She recently sold Art in the Blood by Bonnie MacBird, the first in a Sherlock Holmes trilogy to HarperCollins UK (September 2015) which has become a best-seller and recently sold internationally to 16 countries......

......Langtons International Agency is also moving towards book-to-film deals and has focused on finding viable and commercial books that will translate to film or television series......

......"I work hard for my clients. If I take on a project, I'll see it through to the end. It brings me great satisfaction to help people to bring books up to commercial standards, and then to get them into the right hands for publication." Linda' soft voice became more forceful. "I pride myself on my tenacity as well as my ability to sell a project. I don't give up."......
Thank you Paola K. Amaras and Paul Kraly for your interview on my business, life, and passion.
