Rate That Agent
By Richard Jay Parker
I see a brand new site has been set up to aid writers in their hunt for an agent. It allows them to rate and review them so others can make an informed choice. It also allows agents to post updates re their requirements.
There are lots of great, hardworking agents out there and finding the right one isn't made any easier by the increasing number of scammers posing as agents and publishers who are out to fleece writers by exploiting their desire to get their work published.
The thing to remember is that genuine agents and publishers never ask for money from you. If they do - run a mile. They're meant to recognise and then invest in your talent.
It's always a good idea to do a quick Google of any publishers and agents you're not sure of. If they have a bad reputation you'll find plenty of angry writers posting comments in chat rooms.
Anyway - here's a link to that site. http://www.litfactor.com/
