    [Agency] Forte Associates (Jeanne Forte Dube)

    Has anyone heard of Jeanne Forte Dube of Forte Associates in NY? I find a brief entry in PM, but very little else.

    Thanks, Caopaux, but this seems to be a website for a business brokerage firm in CT. Not the literary agent.

    Oh, for the love of --. That's what I get for having half-caff this morning.

    But given the lack of chatter about her, and that her last sales (as reported on PM) were back in '08, I'm wondering if she's active.

    I believe she might be. I've read of one debut author, Brad Parks, who is repped by her. He writes crime fiction so I wanted to check her out, but can find nothing but the dated PM stuff. Very strange.

    I know Brad some. His book's published by Minotaur (out in a few days), and it's getting a lot of advance buzz.

    Here's Ms. Dube's info from his website. I don't recall if we ever discussed his representation, but he's pretty damn positive in general. Not sure what that's worth, though.

    Has at least one sale for (July) 2010, so she's still around.

    Jeanne Dube is my agent and she's fantastic! I signed on with her in early 2010 and she sold my paranormal romance series to Sourcebooks Publishing in a 5 book deal.

    That looks to be her last sale, though. Anyone have recent contact with her?
