Interview with agent Sandy Lu

Sandy sat down with village writers and bared her literary soul.

I love her answer to what kind of people she admires!

We're Hosting the Next NXNY Publishing Gathering

On May 4th, the L. Perkins Agency will be the host for the now monthly publishing gathering started as a response to all our editorial friends abandoning us for Austin during SXSW. Brett Sandusky really got the ball rolling on this, and we had a blast last month at Park, but we really liked the idea of a gathering of agents and editors once a month with alcohol, so we recommended getting together at the PourHouse, which has an incredible Happy Hour.

See the Invite below to RSVP

The Pourhouse is on 108 street. If you take a cab, they will give you your entire cab receipt as a FREE bar tab (that also includes appetizers), as well as a happy 2 for 1 on drinks until 7.

The venue just confirmed that we will be allowed to use
The Sky Box
It has a 40 person capacity, this room is complete with:
Three 42" HD TVs
Private sound system
Private tap system
Accessible to and overlooks Red Light Bar
Private staff

#NXNY presents ... The 2nd official PCP in NYC, A Publishing Cocktail Party on Tuesday May 4th, 2010, 6:30pm @ The Village Pourhouse UWS
Yes, my friends, it is happening again. This time, as the hosts for the month of May, we (Louise Fury and Lori Perkins of the L. Perkins Literary Agency) are moving the party north…all the way up to W108th Street. But don’t fret; we will make your trip to the nosebleed section of Manhattan worth your while.
We have used our negotiating skills to score a cab tab. Yep, that’s right! If you take a cab to this event (the proof is in the receipt), the bartender will match your proven cab fare in the form of a bar tab. No more excuses not to travel uptown.
But that’s not all… (An agent’s job is never done). If you get there on time, that’s 6:30 p.m., happy hour will be in full swing until 7 p.m. That means 30 minutes of 2 for 1 margaritas, Absolut cocktails, Pyrat Rum and cokes or Cruzan Mojitos.
But what happens at 7 p.m.? Well, there’s a Facebook special with half- price appetizers from 7 p.m. onward. $3 Bud light drafts and $3 Bud Light Draft + shot. You can become a Facebook Fan at the venue that evening. And finally, for those that want some cheese factor—I know of at least one of you—I hear there is even karaoke.

What is #NXNY? A group of dynamic publishing professionals living and/or working in New York City and surrounding areas, who get together to share war stories and drink cocktails (preferably with umbrellas in them.) (The cocktails, not the publishing people.)
