    The Arias Agency (Abelardo J. Arias)

    Does anyone know anything about this agent or literary agency?
    I can't seem to find a client list, but P&E shows no problems.

    Based on the info at the website, Abelardo Arias is a general practitioner who does not seem to have any specialist background in intellectual property law or publishing law. His closest connection with literary matters appears to be the fact that he's the author of a YA science fiction novel (apparently unpublished). I see no sign of sales for the agency.

    I am sure Mr. Arias has good intentions, but I don't see anything to make me think he has the contacts or experience to sell book manuscripts to publishers or to negotiate publishing contracts.

    There's mention of the Santa book on the illustrator's website (2006), but I can't find any sign that it (or any of the other books listed) is/will be published. Anyone else find anything?

    Although the Literary and Authors pages still exist, they're no longer linked from the rest of the site (and I can only find one author/book as possibly sold/published with him as agent), leaving passing mention of "Literary Publishing Agreements" on his Entertainment Law page.
