For a lot of writers getting an agent is harder than the writing.  Media City Groove Guest Blogger, Sue Ann Jaffarian, has leaped that hurdle to become a best-selling author of three mystery series.  Jaffarian, a paralegal for a Los Angeles firm, started off in self-publishing, and along her writer’s journey picked up a thing or two about making that agent hook-up.

Jaffarian is going to share some of her tips in a writer’s workshop called, “Turning Agent Woes Into Agent Wows,” this Saturday, September 17, 2 p.m. at the Buena Vista Branch Library, 300 North Buena Vista Street in Burbank .

Getting an agent is serious business, but you can count on this workshop being done with humor, wit, and a certain flair — Jaffarian has done stand-up comedy and is a motivational speaker as well.

The workshop is part of the Coffee and Conversation series sponsored by the mystery writers’ group, Sisters in Crime LA. For more information on the workshop you can call the Buena Vista Branch Library at (818) 238-5620.

By the way, Jaffarian has a guest post up on this blog about the hot market for short stories. Click here for that post.
