    Smile Diamond Kahn & Woods Literary Agency

    From today's The Bookseller

    Here's DWK Literary's submission guidelines.

    Ella Kahn has been my literary agent's assistant since 2009 and I've worked very closely with her over the past two years. They've just launched their new agency so no sales yet but they will come.

    Anyone who lands Ella as an agent will be very well taken care of, so they're open to submissions as of today. Good luck!

    UPDATE - Actually it's Diamond Kahn & Woods - not Diamon. If someone could fix the title that would be great - I didn't have my glasses on when I typed it.

    Anyone have any thoughts about this new agency? Didn't see it listed.

    Well, my main thought is that I just submitted to Ms. Diamond Kahn.

    The reasons why are Saskatoonistan's endorsement, an interview with the pair of agents given here, and the fact that Ms. Diamond Kahn is interested in representing both YA and adult science-fiction and fantasy.

    I just wrote a note to the guys at QueryTracker asking for DK&W to be added (mostly so that I can selfishly track my own query). Hopefully, if they're listed we'll get more information from the comments there.

    I haven't been able to find any sales for them, but they've just started (as Sask pointed out above). They have started getting other machinery in place, such as subsidiary agents to handle translation rights.

    I liked the interview link! Currently doing my agency research, but it sounds promising.

    Looking forward to reading about the experiences others have.

    Any new info on this agency? I just did a quick search on them and though they have a website that looks like the "typical" agency type of website, I can't find any books they have as of yet published. Granted I'm not the best at researching this kind of stuff, but I checked the first 5 authors they have listed on their "authors" page and couldn't find a single book published among them. There is one mention of one author who has a book that is GOING to be published but the trail seems to die out and there's not further info on it. All their names link to twitter accounts and linked in accounts or back to this agency, but I'm not seeing anything. I only bring it up because someone I "know" is planning to pitch to them, so I was just curious and tried checking them out and hit some dead ends. They are a UK based agency, so perhaps the info is not coming up, but I'm wondering what's going as it seems they've now been around for about a year and half? Maybe more?

    Here's the link to the contest:

    They're sound, building a client base and making sales. I am lucky enough to be represented by them. Very professional.

    I love the look of this agency - they publish quirky books which is what I write.

    I queried them today so the wait begins!

    I love the look and feel of their website, but I probably won't query them until they've made a few more sales. There's no doubt they're legit, though. Some good experience (though I am biased, since Bryony went to my uni :P)
