To help make the sale of a book project in the
works, Curtis Brown agent Elizabeth Sheinkman encouraged the author to put a
5-minute video up on YouTube. Robert Isaacson, author of The Horse Boy, a
proposed book telling about his upcoming trip to Mongolia with his autistic son,
was planning on making a video of the trip (with help from some professionals).
The YouTube video featured below, along with a good proposal, allowed Sheinkman
to sell Isaacson's book for a 7-figure advance in a six-way auction. Judy Clain
of Little, Brown bought the book.
