    Question Reid Boates Literary Agency

    Hi. Has anyone dealt with this agency?
    Here are some stuff I found.

    Contact:
    Principal: Reid Boates, boatesliterary@att.net
    Reid Boates Literary Agency, Box 328, 69 Cooks Crossroad, Pittstown, NJ 08867, USA

    Not much on P&E:

    But a whopping 69 hits on Amazon ranging from the hard science of astrology (just kidding) to cook books. There don't seem to be any fictions but then again is Astrology considered non-fiction?

    Reid Boates

    After enthusiastically agreeing to be my literary agent, Reid Boates continuously failed to respond to my phone calls and emails, broke numerous promises, and then resigned without expalantion. Beware!

    His Unicorn Writers Conference bio seems very impressive. Former editor at Doubleday and Warner Books, then repping NYT and WSJ best sellers. Is there good news to go with the bad?

    There is good news! My misunderstanding with Reid has been resolved. His excellent reputation is well justified.

    Holy crap! This place is near where I live - and I live in the boonies (well, by New Jersey standards).

    Sorry for the interruption. But it's not often that the publishing world comes close to where I live, know what I mean?
    Screw the new blog, I've resurrected my old blog: Writerly Stuff.

    Unconfirmed reports are that the agency has closed.
    Before going into battle, Vikings would ingest Amanita muscaria. In addition to being moderately poisonous, Amanita muscaria eliminated fear causing them to be feared warriors earning Vikings the nick name berserkers.
