Thank you everyone for coming here and helping me out, you've been awesome! (of course, the whole forum is awesome. It should come as no surprise)
Lara is the one who contacted me as well. I will definitely be asking those questions, Ness . But are there any other questions that come to mind, @Kekkerz86 or @NessIllustration ? Sorry to be hanging off your back here, but I'm rather unsure what sort of things to ask the agents!
I figure the initial contract is only for 6 months, which is enough time for me to get a feel for this company and see how it works out. It's difficult to know what will "feel right" as far as an agent goes, when I have nothing else to compare it to. But hopefully when it's over and done, I'll have some things to share with the rest of you!
