Alex Clarke works for the large publishing house Headline, running their Wildfire imprint … its mission to sign up potential ‘watercooler’ books that get readers talking and Hollywood champing at the bit to turn a movie out of the novel.

Before working for Headline, Alex spent many years labouring for Penguin Random House. Current authors include Martina Cole, Neil Gaiman and James Patterson.

During this interview, you’ll hear Alex’s thoughts on not just the post-writing stages of pitching and selling your book to a publisher, but also ways in which you might want to approach the early-stage planning of your novel.

It’s all rather useful material with implications for indie authors as well as those of you seeking to land a traditional deal.
