    Gateway Literary Agency

    http://gatewayliterary.com/about/

    Very new. The principles do not appear to have previous agenting experiences. The usual caveats apply.

    Not that new. I looked at that website a year, or perhaps a year and a half ago because a friend of mine was considering them. The site is the same except for the addition of Mariesa Bergan.

    At that time, and as I write today, the website is a tad bare.

    I think there's something wrong if an agency makes no mention of any sales they've had. Or any clients they rep. Agency websites usually show off this stuff.

    Strange. I don't know how they stay in business with no books and no writers.

    They're not on Predators and Editors, either. Or anywhere else.
    Heretic.

    The website says they do "hybrid contracts". Other friends who want to submit to them wonder what that is. Anyone?

    Her Twitter mentions clients, but no sales that I saw.

    Lots of conferences and workshops, but still no sign of sales.
