Garmin is great! What model of Garmin depends on what features you want. Do you need any specific features like mp3 player, bluetooth, etc? If not go with the Garmin 205 I just bought one the other day for $140. Garmin is the best gps system in my opinion. You may pay a little more for it over Magellan and Tomtom but it is worth is faster route calculations, finds the satellites faster, doesn't crash as much, etc...On top of that Garmin's map updates are cheaper too. The Nuvi 205 has a 4.5 out of 5 star rating among the customers that bought it. It is definitely worth checking out. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0015F0A8G?ie=UTF8&tag=marartpla-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=1789&creativeASIN=B0015F0A8G If you do buy something other than Garmin make sure it is at least TomTom or Magellan since they are big names in the GPS business, the last thing you want to do is buy some cheap GPS and the company goes out of business leaving your GPS updated. Text to speech is one of the extras you can get(like bluetooth, traffic updates, mp3 player etc...), It is pretty handy. A GPS without text to speech will say something like "turn left in 1.7 miles" and the name of the street will appear on the top of the screen. However, text to speech will say something like"turn left in 1.7 miles onto Spring Meadows" making it not necessary to look at the screen to figure out exactly which street to turn onto. A good model to get with text to speech if you do not want a fancy and expensive model is the Nuvi 260 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000UU7ZPS?ie=UTF8&tag=marartpla-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=1789&creativeASIN=B000UU7ZPS also the Nuvi 360 is marked down pretty reasonable considering the features it has http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000EXS1BS?ie=UTF8&tag=marartpla-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=1789&creativeASIN=B000EXS1BS

Ebay have a really good gps company from Europe called Navigon... It is not really famous but really reliable and also have features like traffic report for free,which you would have to pay for if u get other gps. You could get one for around 100 dollars.

The best source of information is Literary Marketplace. Find it in the reference section of your library. It costs 300 dollars a year, so don't buy one. It is more comprehensive than Writers Market, which is more for the novice and has many more listings. Just bring along a notebook to take notes - you cannot check it out. As for the idea of an "affordable agent". Let me explain this to you the proper way. Agents do not charge you a reading fee for their services. They get generally a standard 15% of your royalties. BUT there are many services that an agent IS by law allowed to charge you for. Making copies of your manuscript, long distance phone calls and mailing services are among them. You will be billed for those items. The agent search is a long and hard one. If I had a dime for everybody who said they just knew their book would be a hit, I would be very rich indeed. Remember Gone With the Wind was rejected 37 times. You have to do the research and advocate for yourself. Nobody is going to knock on your door. And agents do not have time to hover here looking for the next Stephen King. A few things. NEVER tell an agent or a publisher you are writing a trilogy. Your first book MUST stand alone -- even if others will follow. Publishers get very nervous and will not purchase a series from a novice author. If the first one bombs, they do not want to be stuck having to publish other books for you. On the other hand, if the first is a hit, you have more bargaining chips for selling the rest of the series. But most importantly, you are putting the cart before the horse. You need to finish your book. Then you need to tuck it away for 2 or so months and take it out and do a rewrite. You must do at least one. And the person above me is correct, poor grammar and spelling will get you sent off to the slushroom extremely fast. Often publishers and agents are so stacked up with material that they can only devote a couple paragraphs to you. If what they see is sloppy and poorly written, off it goes. There is a wonderful book called The First Five Pages. You should read it along with On Writing by Stephen King. They are vital to any writer's reference library. Pax-C

Try looking for a publisher that doesn't require an agent. Most agents yes are good but they are ridiculously expensive. I publish with Dorchester for romance without an agent and I have to say I don't think I would want one. I get much more of a say in how things come out (book cover, format, etc) You can continue to look for agents but if you have never published it will be much more costly than you can afford. Try instead hiring an editor and then google smaller publishing companies. Plus once you get your first book published it will be easier to get bigger deals with bigger publishers and then the agents will be looking for you. Also try joining a writing group. Many of them have conventions where you have the opportunity to meet not only other writers but agents and editors in the business.
