    Daniel Bial Agency / Daniel Bial Editing

    Has anyone any experience with this agency? It seems that Mr.Bial has a particularly bad press from what I have found.

    Let's start with the good part first. There are 32 hits I found on Amazon, which means he's got $. The books are mostly self-helps / how to's & bibliographys.

    Now for the bad parts. An old post claiming that Mr.Bail charges fees.

    Also crisom red 'NOT RECOMMENDED' in P&E, http://www.anotherealm.com/prededitors/peald.htm

    This is Mr.Bial's contact:

    Setting aside the conflict of interest issues with his consulting and editing services, I'd ask both Writer Beware and P&E if they're still getting reports of him charging fees as an agent.

    Doesn't fool around. Sent an e-query to Daniel Bial and got a terse reject within the hour.

    Agency site hasn't been updated in a while, and editing site is gone. Anyone have recent contact with him?

    For the sake of closure: per his LinkedIn page, he closed the agency in '14 to go back to school.
