    [Agency] Collage Literary / Hawkins + Company (Laurie Hawkins)

    Just wondering if anyone has queried Ms Hawkins at Collage Literary. I found her on Publishers Marketplace. Even though that page only listed the genres she represents (no titles), I included her on my list (not my A or B list, for sure). I checked her website and the books looked good enough to me, mainly memoirs.

    She has asked for a full. I took a closer look at all the books on her website and can only find ONE -- Enforcer by Valerie J Wood, ficition -- on Amazon and it is self-published (Author House). http://www.hawkinsandcompany.com/Current_Projects.html

    If anyone has had experience with Ms Hawkins or her agency, I hope you can tell us all about it.

    Thank you so much.

    Nor does their store page inspire confidence in either their agenting or publicity skills.

    Thanks CaoPaux! I agree. Good to know these things. It's clear what I should do if she's interested.
