Success

A friendly stroll to the bank

Your agent is just off to the bank. You're no fool, and you stick to her like a friendly limpet. Why she has to pay your royalties in sterling is a mystery, but at least she does pay you this time.


Failure

A professional intransigence

You rap your walking cane on your agent's door until the wood splinters. You shout uncivil words through her letter-box. You threaten to loose the attack dogs of the law. Your royalties might as well be nailed to the cavern roof.
