How long have you been a PA?

I have been a PA for about 2 weeks now lol

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

Um I honestly was never interested in being a PA until I read my author I stalked her into a friendship and told her if she needed help with anything I would gladly volunteer. A few months later she was finally in the market for a new PA and I jumped all over it.

What do you do as a PA?

Right now I am mostly her book pimp. I post and talk about her books and help her with takeovers closing out giveaways. I am managing her ARC team. I act a a go between for group chats cause bless her she hates them. I also am trying my hand at making teasers

Um music is a must it gets my creative juices flowing. Oh another quirk I have is I talk out loud to myself.

What are your hopes for the future?

I just want to always be MJ Marstens PA

I am only focusing on my one author for right now. I have other things going on but IF that ever changes I’ll let y’all know

I started PA work in April of 2019

°

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

No, I didn’t really know what a PA did honestly. I was just asked to work for some authors one day and I enjoy helping them so I jumped on it. I would have done it for free to be honest but they wouldn’t let me. Haha.

°

What do you do as a PA?

I always have a hard time with this questions because I don’t really know the line between what is actual PA work and what I am doing for fun. Lol. I keep the calendar for Takeovers, sign then up for events, handle tasks that they need me too, sometimes I make graphics, find teasers, I promote their books and manage their groups… I do a lot of the tasks that would keep them from writing basically.

°

Do you have any quirks while working?

I don’t think so?

I hope everyone realizes how awesome my authors are and love them as much as I do. Yea, I’m talking about you, Kendra Moreno, K.A. Knight and Poppy Woods, you talented bishes.

Do you have any advice for new PA’s?

Make friends in the PA community, ask loads of questions, ask for help and always remember that you and your authors are a team, what is good for them is good for you.

°

Are you available for new work or booked solid.

I am not taking on any full time authors at the moment but I do offer some of my services on their own and an author could PM me anytime to see what those services are.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a single mum from Scotland. I have three little demons and a fur baby. I’ve been apart of the RH community for about 4 years.

°

Have you always wanted to be a PA?

I honestly never thought it was possible. I started as an arc reader and realized early on that I loved the community and wanted to be apart of it. I had been an unofficial PA for about a year. Then I met Lacey and my life changed.

°

How lone have you been a PA?

I have been a PA for two and a half years.

°

What do you do as a PA?

My job is to help. I run my authors social media, keep there groups active, promote their books, look for arc and beta readers, put out newsletters, run parties and takeovers, post giveaways things like that. We do whatever the author needs so they can focus on writing.

°

Do you have any quirks while working?

I would say no but my partner Nichol would say I do. I like to plan each author has their own notebook and doc. Everything I’m doing or planning is down in my notebook. I also have this weird thing where I stress about what games to post will the readers like them, will the group be active.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to still be a PA and apart of this community. I would love for the publishing company me and my partner are running to be a success and I just started taking a class to become a literary agent so I would love to have completed that also.

°

Do you have any advice for new PA’s?

Work together, building relationships with other PA’s will make things easier. Don’t be afraid to ask for advice or help. When I started I had three PA’s who helped me a lot. With out Jamie, Erin and Missy I wouldn’t be here. Also having a good relationship with your author helps I can honestly say my authors are like my family I love them so much. And last I would say enjoy it yes this is a job and you will have a lot to do but you can also have a lot of fun too.

°

Are you available for new work or booked solid?

We are running a few sales at the moment and have availability for two authors.

GoT in about 36. I am a PA, editor, and make some graphics. I live on energy drinks, aka jet fuel. And believe pineapple belongs in drinks, not pizza.
