What is a Literary Agent?

A literary agent represents an author in their dealings with book publishers. It is the agentís job to get a manuscript read and sought after by influential editors at publishing houses. A literary agent acts on behalf of the author to find a publisher for a written or proposed manuscript and who handles the subsequent subsidiary rights not acquired by the publisher; sometimes called an author's agent or author's representative. A literary agent also acts on behalf of publishers to find special types of manuscripts by authors. Literary agents represent authors and illustrators for a percentage of their clients' profit. Literary agents typically claim 10%-20% of advances and royalties, and are generally savvy with contract negotiations and have market knowledge and contacts that most authors do not. Some literary agents charge reading fees to review a prospective client's manuscript, but we advise against using these types of literary agents because often they are money making scams with no intention of publishing the author.
