    Wow, I paid them only $150 way back in '94 or '95. Met them at a conference held by the Virginia chapter of RWA. They had appts right along with all the legit agents.

    Eventually they sent me form rejection letters, which could have been photocopied over and over for every author. Looking back, I'm glad that initial ms. didn't sell, but I still feel they wasted my money.

    I think i signed with them in '97. found them in WRiter's Digest Ad. All i got were a few form rejections as well, they could have come from anywhere. It's so sad, how some of these agents are.
