    [Agency] Sheba Media Group

    Does anyone have information on this talent/literary agency other than what's featured on their website? Apparently, one of their in-house agents is William Panyare - anyone know anything about him...? Much appreciated.

    Sheba seems to have some degree of success as a talent agency, but for book authors, there isn't much sign of sales. What sales there are, are focused on the African American market.

    Agents whose track records are entirely focused on a single specialty market won't necessarily have the knowledge or contacts to sell outside that market (or, possibly, the interest). Also, even for a single-focus agency, Sheba's track record of book sales seems to be pretty slim.

    I can find a few sales for both Renee Byrd and Maxine Thompson, but none for William Panyare.

    Just for the record, some of their other ventures -- all of which look to be defunct: booktofilm.com (not to be confused with bookstofilm.com), booktofilmrealitytv.com, houstonblackfilmfestival.org, and scriptclique.com.
