Agents operate on commission only due on sales actually made. Be very careful about people acting as agents who charge a fee for selling your book. This is not the normal practice. To find out if an agent is good we recommend you talk to other writers.
For more information about Agents see our leaflet Getting help with your Manuscript (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information) or our booklet Getting Published, which is available from our Online Bookshop.
Social media is an invaluable component of self-marketing. Among the countless social media networks, Twitter has become the most distinguished as a popular and effective promotional tool for writers.
