    Jonathan Pegg Literary Agency

    Anyone had any dealings with Jonathan Pegg? He's ex Curtis Brown and has recently set up by himself.

    I've had a reply in two days from my submission to Mr Pegg. He said he's on holiday but is 'looking forward' to reading my attached sample in a few weeks.

    That's what I count as a decent result. He could be worth a go in a couple of weeks for anyone in a similar position to me.

    Me too.
    Perhaps the most amazing thing about the universe is that we could create an infinite catalogue of things, worlds and beings that no one has seen and which do not exist. Each story in the realm of fiction is a small part of that catalogue.

    Anything new on him? His website is still under construction so there is no list of clients or books sold.

    Is it possible Curtis Brown would keep Jonathan's sales information on their site?

    I'm heading over to the Agent forum to ask.

    Pegg is totally legit and flourishing. He sold my friend's book at Random House London and was able to secure US rights as well. He's one of the best in the UK for non-fic, memoir and literary fiction. Anyone who lands him as an agent is one lucky duck.
