    Where was the agency name found? Magazine, newsletter, in a book, online, from a friend?
    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.

    She says, "I am a brand new agent...I can get you great advances!"

    Keep looking.

    Well, the only mention of her on WN (where anyone and their cousin's dog can declare themselves an agent), and her listing does not inspire confidence in her knowledge of the industry.

    http://www.writers.net/agents/40180?...4cc436a81a9700

    I am a brand new agent, looking for authors and poets to work with. I will sell your books, poems, manuscripts and etc. to the publishing houses. I can get you great advances! Send items to read to my mailing address. NO READING FEES CHARGED!!!

    Interesting that she’s not asking for queries, only these mysterious “items”. Possibly she is impoverished, looking for combustibles to stoke her wood stove.

    And beware of any agent or editor or anyone who uses: (!) or even worse: (!!) to promote themselves or their business.

    That's so true! In the publishing world, everyone uses at least five of them, due to exclamatory inflation. (As in, she's a bloody genius!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Remember, Chris (One Team), it doesn't matter where an agent has his/her business. Emails and faxes and cell phones can connect you anywhere.

    Nevertheless, an awful lot of this business is done over lunch and at parties. Being at those parties and at those restaurants isn't a bad thing.

    Her Agent listing is gone. Here's her listing under Writers:

    31 years old, been writing poetry and songs since I was 13 years old. Never had anything published, but then again never tried. Have a couple of poems on poetry.com under my maiden name Katherine McCrosky.
    So, uh, nevermind.
