    Angel City Talent

    They're listed as a signatory agency by the WGA and their website says: "Literary submissions are currently being accepted via e-mail only"

    Anyone with any info on Angel City Talent? Good, bad or other? Thanks (a forum search turned up nothing)

    If it's the same Lori Peters (and I have no idea if it is), she started with an agency called Bulletproof Artist Management and Booking (see here on the History page), then started her own agency called Mad Mission Agency (the name "Lori Peters" is in the sidebar).

    Both agencies seem to deal more with music artists, so I'm not sure (if this is the same Lori Peters) where Ms. Peters picked up any contacts in the publishing industry.

    Of course, this could be a different Lori Peters.

    Be careful with the terminology when lurking in Hollywood.

    In Hollywood-ese, when people say "literary agent", they usually mean an agent for screenplays.

    In Hollywood-ese, the people we usually refer to as literary agents are called "book agents."

    If she's a member of the WGA and calling herself a 'literary agent', she's probably in the screenplay business.

    From Macmillan New Writing, September 7, 2007. (Pan mass-market paperback in September, 2008). In the UK at Goldsboro Books, Borders, Waterstones, and other fine bookstores. Overseas, Amazon.co.uk and most other online retailers.

    They no longer list Lori Peters or any literary agent.
