    Grace Morgan Literary Agency

    Does anyone have any experience with Grace Morgan? I haven't been able to find much info on her. She seems old school which is fine with me if she is reputable. I sent her a query via snail mail, and she replied with a hand written note requesting a partial. Today, she called and asked me to send her a full.

    I'm curious how you learned about this agent. I don't find her listed in agentquery, querytracker, P&E or Publisher's Marketplace.

    ETA: She seems to represent Romance Writer Janet Chapman. That is all I've found.

    I found her agency on the Karen Fox List of Agents website. She is also listed as attending the RWA conference in July on the RWA site.

    The only info I could find was an article saying she was attending a writer's convention in 2004.

    I'd ask for a list of sales and clients before signing anything. If she refuses, I'd seriously reconsider this agent.

    I appreciate the feed back. I'm hoping no negative news is a good thing. She was very upfront and business-like on the phone. With the info on some of Grace Morgan's clients from CaoPaux, I feel better knowing she has a her foot in the industry. (Thanks CaoPaux. I didn't think of researching her name that way.) I'm only hesitating on sending my ms at this point, because I already have it at two reputable agencies that I'm still waiting to hear back from.
