Agents

David Isaak over at Tomorrowville has an interesting dilemma on his hands at the moment - whether to enter the whole getting-an-agent fray (again) now that he's already got a publisher (the same one as me, ie MNW).

While I'm at work today (and therefore blogging this evening) regular readers and especially those who are writers too can ponder this for me - do we need agents? Apart from finding a publisher - clearly not an issue - do they deserve their 10/15/20%?

I am supporting, chatting with and consulting on the needs of my lads with Asperger Syndrome and autism spectrum disorders today and wondering if I should be worried about meeting the Heffers' reading group tomorrow. Still, I'll have Faye and Aliya with me to hold my hand...
