    [Agent] Caroline Carney

    Listed on Booktalk w/ url "bookdealsinc.com," which redirects to a book club sales page.

    Caroline Carney is supposed to be an agent in Chicago. Anyone know anything about her?

    The Booktalk agent listing is a textbook example of why researching agents through such online resources is not a great idea. It is incredibly out of date--along with currently active agents, it lists agents who have been out of business for ages or who have moved on to new agencies or simply have changed their addresses.

    I can find some references to Caroline Carney and Book Deals Inc. dating back to before the turn of the century, but nothing recent. I suspect that this agent is not currently in business.

    Thumbs down thanks, Victoria

    I noticed a lot of scammy agents listed there, too.

    FWIW, the last mention I find is from 2003. The most recent books thanking her as agent were pubbed 2004 (meaning sold 2003), so that looks like her last active year.
