    Emil Cioran Literary Agency

    Anyone heard of the Emil Cioran Literary Agency? Can't find much info online other than they're new and looking for clients.

    Do they have a website or did you find the information at another forum and if so, which one?
    When it comes to PA, the royalty check and the reality check arrive in the same envelope.

    Remember to be kind to writers who step in PA. They really don't know how bad it smells.

    The difference between PA and WLA? None. Both have the stench of dead and dying books emanating from their doorways.

    The agency is not listed on publisher's marketplace nor have there been any deals from them listed there. I don't know anything about them and I've never heard of them before. Sorry.

    Well I found this on writers.net but nothing anywhere else. Since he is in the UK, I'm not sure if that means much over here though. Pretty scant information.

    That's the same info I found. Like you say, pretty scant.

    Thanks for the replies.

    A successful agent, or someone with publishing industry experience (which is essential for an agent who wants to be successful), will usually be at least somewhat researchable. If the only info you can find is listings at websites like WritersNet, it's probably a good idea to hold off on querying. You can always Google the agent's name in six months to see if he's made any sales.

    Queried this person a long time ago, when I was still new at this. They never responded. I don't know if that helps, but I'd tend to agree with Victoria.

    Oh well. All it cost me was an email.

    The search continues...
