Agents’ loyalties are to some degree divided: since they represent a number of clients, they may have to back down on some issues to protect their ongoing business relationships with publishers. Agents also get a cut of money an author gets but may not fully back the author on other issues. We advise members on author-agent agreements and have formulated contract language that even experienced agents have found useful. No one agent has the cumulative knowledge of our approximately 1,300 members.
