I'm new here. However, I've been reading this message board for a few months. Have any of you ever heard of West Coast Literary Associates? I queried this Agency and received a reply from Dr. Richard VanDerBeets requesting the first chapter of my manuscript. Oops! One problem! I failed to look the agency up on P&E. They charge an upfront fee of $95. Have any of you ever dealt with West Coast Literary? If so, what were the results?
