Who is a literary agent?

A literary agent is, most of the time, a former editorial manager of a renowned publishing house. He or she knows all the workings of this universe.

What are the services of a literary agent to the author?

It spares the author the tedious search for a publisher whose editorial line corresponds to his work. The last service rendered by the literary agent to the author whom he represents is to negotiate the publishing contract for him. Many publishers don’t like this third-party intervention in their relationship with an author.

How many French authors use a literary agent?

Why does an author call a literary agent?
