    Wow - I've searched Google, Amazon, Agent Query... I can find nothing about this agency or agents Edward Cecil, Phyllis Coady. Agent Daisy Frost keeps a rather entertaining blog and writes a column for The Bookseller, but nothing on anyone's sales or clients for that matter.

    Oh well, maybe they are off the grid.

    Agent Daisy Frost

    She is apparently a junior agent with the Edward Cecil Literary Agency in the UK (I can't find any sales for them - anyone? anyone?).

    I haven't found any sales for her either but she writes a weekly column for The Bookseller which reads a little like Hedda Hopper meets TMZ. I follow her on Twitter and her Tweets make me think she's the Perez Hilton of UK book publishing.

    Is she legit? Anyone? I emailed her for some background information and she never responded so I'm thinking she's not legit.

    Thoughts?

    Miss Daisy Frost might be a pseudonym, Sask. I believe the Daisy Frost you found is not the same person, and is probably a little bemused by all the attention she's getting now.

    Beats me - she's got a link at their website and her blog says she's with that agency. Maybe those across the pond will have better luck than I am.

    Ah--then I was wrong, and she really is THAT Daisy Frost!

    She's very funny, isn't she? And fearless, too. She reminds me of me a couple of decades ago.

    Indeed, but is she a legitimate literary agent? Has she sold anything? Anyone?

    (I have no idea why I am obsessing over this. Maybe I should untweet her. She just seems to spend more time tweeting than agenting, you know, assuming she's a real agent and not Perez Hilton.)

    I'm pretty sure she's a real literary agent, but not at Edward Cecil - check out their website. It's a spoof.

    I've always been a sucker for a good spoof. Meh - I have an agent now, no worries.
