    Empire Literary

    Does anyone know anything about this agency? The website (http://www.empireliterary.com/) is just the landing page with contact details, but I know Andrea Barzvi has been at other agencies.

    According to Publisher's Marketplace, Barzvi has been selling steadily since 2014 under the Empire Literary moniker, mostly focusing on non-fiction and women's fiction/romance. Out of ten deals, two of them were six-figure ones.

    I only see a landing page? Anyway, I queried about six months ago and the email address still worked at that point.

    You have to add home to the address: www.empireliterary.com/home

    And it seems, everything other than home page is password protected now? (About, Authors, and Contact Us)

    Back burner this one for now...

    Looks like they were in the process of revamping: full site up and running now (no "home" needed).

    Help! I checked out their website and cannot find submissions information. All it says is please don't query more than one agent. No info on what they want to see--q. letter, pages, 10 page synopsis, personalised cupcakes...

    could contact and ask--but if in doubt I'd send a query letter only.

    I found the submissions info on the "About Us" page or you can click on the individual agent pages. Most want a query + 25 pages. Hope that helps!

    Thanks! I did look at each agent; only one of them has a link to a website where it states that she wants 25 pages and a query letter (Carrie Howland). The others have links to their e-mail addy and Twitter only. Not sure what I'm missing here... My computer fu must be off!
