    Alexandra Nye, Writers & Agents

    Hi everyone,

    I can't see anything about this in the main index, so i'm looking for a background check on the following:

    Alexandra Nye Literary Agency
    No email, no website, doesn't accept calls, but has a number.
    Agency charges a reading fee.

    Thats all I know, but i'd like to know if anyone else knows more.

    All I know is that they are not recommended by Preditors and Editors.
