    My Authors Ltd. (JJ Reid)

    I did a search through the index and I did not see anything listed about him or his agency. The only info I could find on-line is listed here:

    http://www.writers.net/agents/69778

    If anyone has any experience with them, good or bad, please let me know. Thank you.

    If this is in the wrong place, please forgive me.

    the "Reading Fee: Yes" should send up a red flag.

    I'm not familiar with him personally, but bare in mind that he charges a reading fee, so it wouldn't be my first choice.

    I asked him about the reading fee and he said that he does not charge a reading fee. It's a misprint.

    That was my thought too. Anyone can pose as an agent and charge a 'reading fee'.

    No info on the net, a warning but not a big flag. Has a publishing branch to his business, BIG red flag. Allegedly charges a reading fee. He may say that's a misprint, but unless he's doing anything to correct it it's kind of hard to take his word for it. Besides, there have been a few agents who give the reading fee a different name to somehow justify it. The publishing thing is enough to turn me off though, I'd definitely look elsewhere. An agent who is both agent and publisher will do you no favours.

    Finally put up a new website June '13 (http://myauthors.dating4adults.net/). No further activity there, but sporadic signs of life on Tw and FB.

    Refiling under pub services.

    ETA: "updating and reconfiguring" again, this time at http://www.myauthors.info/.
