Bad agent? Here’s some good advice

From getting your first agent to losing your first agent.

Not too long ago I posted what will be the first of a number of features based around getting your first whiff of representation. In it, author Daniel Kemp laid out the path he took to getting his first agent, but warned: “That’s when the hard work started.”

After I posted the piece, Daniel responded on his own blog with another anecdote from the pages of his career – and a much graver warning.

I won’t regurgitate it all here – because, as you’d expect, it’s impeccably delivered by Kemp himself – but it’s a great example of some of the things that can turn the relationship between a writer and their rep sour.

I suppose the sum of it would be that a bad agent isn’t worth keeping.
