    MBA Literary & Script Agents

    Just wondering if anyone has any actual experience with this agency? I know they're around a long time and seem to be well regarded, just looking for any personal experience. (haven't found a thread on this forum, but if there is one, transfer)
    The link below is the agency site.

    Looks like it. She made a sale in January, and another in May. (The latter was on behalf of Donald Maass and a "very nice deal", FWIW.)

    MBA literary agents

    Hi,

    I searched but couldn't find any threads on this agency, so I thought I could start one. Do you have personal experiences with David Riding? Does he respond to queries at all or is he a 'no response=rejection' agent?

    Please do share your experiences.

    Thanks,
    Righter

    A friend of mine is represented by Meg Davis, and gets tons of support. You could do far, far worse.

    Thanks for the info., guys. Can you give me some idea on their response time or whether they respond at all? Someone told me David is extremely quick in answering queries but I've been waiting for over a month. I feel hesitant to nudge him; don't want to annoy him.

    I'm afraid I don't know their current response times - but when I was looking for an agent I used something called LitMatch to track response times, and found this reflected my experiences.

    The page for MBA is http://www.authoradvance.com/agencie...ary-agents-ltd, but it's not been updated since last year.

    Good luck!
