Q&A thread

So, with the disclaimer of being somewhat brain-dead and having been awash in paperwork for the last two weeks, I declare a publishing Q&A. Please post your questions about agents & publishing (if you have any) in comments and I'll see what I can do with them. Short/easy ones will probably just get answered in comments.
