Josie Cross PA #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Josie, I’m 28 and I live in Western Pennsylvania with my husband, 2 dogs and 2 cats. When I’m not working my day job as a Certified Veterinary Technician or doing my PA duties, I enjoy reading (of course), video games, camping and kayaking.

How long have you been a PA?

Only for a few months.

Example:

°

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

Actually, no. I am new to this whole author/PA world only really getting immersed in it within the last year. I actually started as an ARC reader but got to talking to Ira Myriam one day and she told me that I should think about becoming a PA. She got me in contact with the right people and I haven’t looked back since. She has been amazing and a true blessing in my life.

Example:

°

What do you do as a PA?

Currently I am working with 2 bloggers and an author. I help with running their group pages; engagement, new posts, accepting members, welcoming members, closing and choosing winners for giveaways. I make various types of forms; takeover sign ups, ARC sign ups, prize claim forms, etc. I also promote books on various platforms. I also am slowly teaching myself to make graphics for various things (it’s a work in progress).

Do you have any quirks while working?

Does listening to 2000s emo music while working count? If so, that’s my only one.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I am hoping to continue working with the awesome bloggers and authors I have, as well as possibly adding others. I also hope to get better at making graphics as I’m new to all of that.

Do you have any advice for new PA’s?

Don’t be afraid to take the plunge. I was terrified to become a PA at first and now I can’t imagine being one. Find a few friends in the PA community. There are so many amazing people who are willing to talk to you and help you out.

°

Are you available for new work or booked solid?

I am available.
