I signed a contract with Susan Mears 2 years ago and she did nothing to secure me a publisher. She made several attempts to get me to hand over money to her, without fail. She informed me that an interested publisher asked for £500 from me towards marketing. I refused and ended my contract with her.
I found a new agent, Owen Burnham, of L & C Literary Agency. Owen used to work for Susan, but wasn't happy with the way she treated authors, so he left and set up his own agency. A week after signing my contract with him I had an offer from a Publisher, which I have accepted. My book, "Running from Tenda Gayamar" will be published in 3 to 5 months.
Owen is a great agent, honest, with integrity and appreciation of the hard work that author's do to share their stories. He is an agent to trust.
