    Cantrell-Colas, Inc.

    I did a search for them here, but couldn't find anything.

    This literary agency is listed in P&E, but I can't find anything else about them. Do they have any recent sales? Does anyone else have any experience with them?

    They've requested for more of my mss, but it makes me nervous since there's no website or they're not in any of the marketbooks.

    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Ask them directly: Who are some of their better known clients? What have they sold lately?

    No website is not always bad, but not being in the main marketbooks is curious. Where did you find them in the first place?

    That's the problem. They've been non-responsive to my questions. I guess the friend who told me about them really didn't do her research either.

    M'kay. From this we discover the owner's name: Maryanne Colas-Thibouville. Which leads us to a dedication from a book pubbed in 1998. After a merry search for an agent named Cantrell, I tripped over some concert credits for her playing as Cantrell-Colas (probably her maiden name). *head hurt*

    But I don't find any mention of the agency after 2000.
