Literary Agents Who Mean Business

I recently came across an interesting website which lists agents that have placed books with publishers. Anyone can set up a website and claim to be a literary agent – but unless they’ve proved they can make a sale, agents are of no use to to writers.

Click here for a list of agents who’ve proved their mettle.

My disclaimer stands – make sure you check any offers from agents out before signing away your rights.

    Agents work for a percentage of your sales, not for upfront fees. If you are paying the agent, he’s got no incentive to sell your book.

      My bad. I should have made this clear. What I should have said was – there are scammers out there who are ready to take desperate first time authors for a ride. Just be careful who you sign up with. Appreciate the clarification.
