    Scribes Editorial & Literary Agency

    Does anyone have experience with this agency? It seems pretty legitimate; though they have an editorial service, they will not offer representation to those who use the service.
    I found them on the publishers marketplace website.

    It's good that she's clear about not representing work she edits. I'd ask for a list of recent sales.

    Not to be mistaken with the heavy hitter "Scribe Agency" which is run by Kristopher O'Higgins, Jesse Vogel or with the "New Scribe Agency" which is NOT recommended by PE.

    The principle (and only?) agent Barbara Ellis has a $ at PE, http://www.anotherealm.com/prededitors/pealb.htm

    From CP's comment, I find it strange that they don't represent work that they have edited. It would seem reasonable to me that they continue working with authors whom they believe in. Trully, if they have added value to the ms through their edition to enhance the sale as most agents do anyways, then they would have found it to their advantage to continue working with the author.

    Two books showed up on Amazon.com

    Because it's basically a conflict of interest and an unfair advantage. Plus it makes me wonder if the agency is unable to support itself solely as an agency. Especially if those two books are the only books they've handled since 2007.
