DO NOT sign on with an agent that requests money up-front. Check out this story about an who pleaded guilty to fraud charges.

If you're desperate to get published, take a chill pill. With few exceptions the process of getting a manuscript turned into a real book takes a very long time.

Miss Snark is right: Submit your first ms. and then go work on the second in the meantime.
