Podcast 69: An Interview with Chas Jenkins Pat

There are many people who have made writing their job – including many people who don’t do the writing part. Sarah and Jane sit down and talk with Chas Jenkins Patrick from Rock Star Lit, who works as a virtual assistant and marketing assistant for many authors. She’s also Kristen Ashley’s assistant, and has been for years. We talk about being an assistant and how her job has changed over the years, as well as productivity and self assessment. We also talk about what she’s reading, as she and Jane have marvelously well-matched reading taste.

Please note: we have a bit of a spoilery discussion about Allegiant in the end, from about 23:00 – 24:05.

Here are some of the books we talk about:

Book After the Ending - Lindsey Pogue Lindsey Fairleigh Book Shooter Dahlia West Book Move the Sun Susan Finetti

Book Behold the Stars - Susan Finetti Book The Last Hour of Gann Book Mockingjay

Book Breaking Dawn Book Allegiant - Veronica Roth Book The Golden Dynasty

Book Fantastical Book Wildest Dreams
