For most authors the answer to "what does an agent do?" is "sell my book to a publisher." And that is certainly one of an agent's task, but literary agent Jill Marsal tells us about some of the other tasks agents often take on.

Once a book is sold, an agent's work may continue into publicity or marketing. She ends with a warning about what to watch for when researching possible agents.
