    However if (as in so many of these cases) both agents don't know you from Adam, what introduction is there to make? This is the bit I don't get.

    I obviously didn't write my earlier post very clearly.

    I meant a non-agent connection of mine (usually a past colleague/friend) who can introduce me to a new agent that I don't already know.
