    Edite Kroll Literary Agency

    Has anyone had any dealings with Ms. Kroll? It's difficult to find much about her online. Thanks

    Isn't it Edith Kroll?
    When it comes to PA, the royalty check and the reality check arrive in the same envelope.

    Remember to be kind to writers who step in PA. They really don't know how bad it smells.

    The difference between PA and WLA? None. Both have the stench of dead and dying books emanating from their doorways.

    No, it's "Edite" (rhymes with "paid-eat"), Dave; I see you have it as "Edith" on P&E, which is an understandable error as it's a far more common name (I think Jeff Herman had it wrong as well).

    I think she represents mostly or only children's books; she doesn't seem to have a website.

    I read about her in the SCBWI agent directory, but I wouldn't go on that alone. I found a couple of authors' blogs who mentioned her, but nothing much elsewhere. Interesting.

    I'd say she's legit. If you have her submission email address, or even just the info from the SCBWI, perhaps you could put it down on this thread?

    I queried yesterday, received a polite response a couple hours later saying she is no longer looking for new clients.
