    Who's That Agent/Agency?

    Hey everyone
    Not sure if I'm allowed to post this here, but have a question regarding the name of an ageny:
    Few months ago (maybe 2?), i was browsing around online, and came across an agent/agency whose exact name I don't remember. But I do remember the name of the agency having something along the lines of "black gold" or some combination of "black" and "gold". On their site, they have some big names (don't recall who exactly), and after that, can't find the agency so asking for some help for the name.
    thanks.

    hmm...no its not him, although thanks for the info; I didnt come across his name until now. might query him.
    lol, trivial pursuit or some Family Feud, "Name one agency every novelist tries to get" "Writers House" From family: "good answer" "is Writers House up there?"
    anyways...
    no, its not a book, its the name of an agency/agent
    i remember his website had a black background, and his clients got very good advances...
