Assistants & Resources

I really want an assistant, someone willing to put together my clips, call magazines to make sure an editor listed on the masthead is still there, scan my published articles into my computer, chase down miscellaneous facts to flesh out a scene, etc., etc.

I've heard of virtual assistants; today I came across a Web site for certified authors' assistants. And on the site, there was a list of author resources, including On Becoming an Author," "Ten Powerful Strategies for Writing a Nonfiction Best Seller," and "Ten Things Rookie Authors Do to Mess Up Their Nonfiction Book Success." Take a gander.

And I'd love to hear from anyone who uses an assistant--where you found the person, what he or she does for you, how it's working out.
