    You decide weather its worth your time.

    OK If you want to write a book few things to remember, you have to get an agent, then they go and get you a book deal with a publisher. Ok whats wrong with my last statement? OK I will tell you you have to get an agent who then gets any commission on your work submitted through them, next you also have to pay the publisher a commission too. so your paying two people instead of one. Also why do you have to audition to an agent it should be an agent taking you in as a client. If you really want to write a book do you want to spend 150 dollars on this? It does not guarantee you you'll get and agent or book deal. Folks today's books are going digital and that's the wave of the future. Why get an agent when you can publish in digital form and keep more money in your pocket. Publishing agents are one of those jobs that will be fading in the next 10 years. Why because agents will take on dumb books like "What my poop tells me" or some other lousy book that sells some and then they fade away. Also agents say they are looking for people who are already published. So that tells you they only care for the quick buck for bad writing. Want to get publish go with B&N's "Pubit" you make all of the deals yourself and save yourself allot of money listening to people who only want to take the money out of your pocket and put it into theirs. But you decide if you think this is a good deal for you. I say no to this but its my opinion.
