pertaining to the Agent.

Author attests that, during the term of this Contract, the Author will employ
no other Literary Agent to represent the Author for the Author's Represented
Works. It is acknowledged that some of the Author's backlog will be
excluded from this contract because it is covered by a prior agreement with
another agency.

selling the Author's Represented Works. The Literary Agent shall not be
reimbursed for such expenses and need not account for them to the Author,
except that the Author shall reimburse the Literary Agent for unusual
expenses, incurred by the Literary Agent with the Author's prior consent, for
the Represented Works.
Receipt and disbursal of funds. On the Author's behalf, the Literary
Agent shall collect all payments due the Author under any Represented

Literary Agent and dealt with, unless it is obviously personal, in which case

is approached directly by any party interested in the Author's Represented
Works, the Author shall inform the Literary Agent immediately and refer the
party to the Literary Agent.
