    [Agency] Toby Eady Associates

    Has anybody had any experience with Toby Eady Ass, and a Jamie Coleman that works there?

    They've had a full for a bit over a month, but no word yet.

    Mat, did you ever hear back?

    This UK agency has requested 50 pages of my manuscript. Their commission for foreign writers is 20% instead of the usual 15%. Their USA associate is ICM.

    Are there any American writers here who have been repped by a foreign agent? Are there special issues one should be aware of?

    I e-mailed Mr. Coleman yesterday for permission to query, he responded this morning with a courteous reply requesting me to send fifty pages to assistant Ms. Pamela Hunt.

    So Jamie is a male. Not easy to tell because I know a couple of women who are called Jamie.

    Anyone have an update on this agent?

    Hi All,
    I had a request for a partial from the Toby Eady Agency back in December 2010. I received my "it's not for us" email today. Ugh!

    I emailed a query to Mr. Eady this afternoon. According to their guidelines, I included the first 50 pages. This is my first query to a non-American agent. Have any US authors here had any recent experiences with them? I will post back when I receive a response from them.

    Bryan - did you hear from Mr. Eady?

    And if you did, how long did it take? Thanks!
