    Max Gartenberg Literary Agency

    It seems that most threads on this board tend to lean towards the negative about litereary agents and rightfully so. I just want to get the word out that I have an agent by the name of Anne Devlin who is with the Max Gartenberg agency who has been trying to sell my manuscript for a couple of months. I am VERY happy with her work. She sends me the letters(of rejection) LOL and has answered my emails in a timely manner. My manuscript may not sell, but it sure won't be because of my agent not pushing hard enough!

    That's really good for you. Good luck with you piece. I don't notice where there is a lot of agent bashing going on here; just that some have had bad experiences.

    A quick search on Amazon.com reveals Max is a writer as well as an agent. The books listed are between US$7 to US$33, with average about US$13.

    I queried Dirk Devlin in March. Weeks after I sent the query, I was offered representation from a different agent. On April 1, he emailed me asking for the first three chapters via snail mail. I told him I already had an offer, but thanked him for his interest. Overall, my experience with him was professional and satisfactory.
    My YA Fantasy novel, ESCAPE FROM WITCHWOOD HOLLOW, will soon be published by Curiosity Quills.
