Jane Dowary Agency

I didn't see her on the AW, so I thought to ask around. Anyone know of her?

http://www.linkedin.com/in/janedowaryagency

She's listed on the P&E too.

I've heard from two writers who signed up with her. Not only has she failed to sell their books, she has given them bizarre advice and submitted (or, as I suspect, claimed to submit) their work to completely inappropriate publishers. Both writers were asked to do complete re-writes based on a sentence of criticism, supposedly from an editor at a major company, pasted into an email.

The Claire Dunes Agency, where she claims to have trained, does not appear to exist.

Based on this, on what I've been told about her M.O., and on a tell-tale mis-spelling in her list of the publishers with which she claims to be working (Houghton "Miffin"), I suspect that this is the latest incarnation of Julia Levin/Drew Montgomery, an agent roleplayer who made some bizarre appearances here a couple of years back. See the thread.

Even if Jane Dowary is actually Jane Dowary, there's no evidence of competence, experience, or sales.

I also found this to be a bit red-flag-y:

Quote:
I only sign my clients to a contract once I have secured them a publishing contract from one of the major trade publishing houses.
So...there's no contract before she submits? This leaves both the author and her open to a lot of problems. It's not standard practice (there are agents who don't have written contracts at all, but there's still a verbal agreement to actually represent the author. The idea that she's submitting books she doesn't officially represent, and refusing to sign an author whose book does not sell...all kinds of questions there).

PM turned up no sales (just adding that info to Victoria's comment).

She claims to have been in business since 2006 - surely that's ample time for a couple of sales to have shown up?

I found this strange too. What's to say you submit something on your own and get a contract, would you still have to go with her? If nothing's written down or talked about, you never know. Sounds too iffy to me.

Not to be awakening a necro-thread from its deep and nightmarish slumber, but Ms. Dowary may have made a sale! I was doing some searching on Soul Mate Publishing for another thread here and Ms. Dowary claims to have sold Trish Jackson's Capricorn Cravings to Soul Mate. Ms. Jackson's website indicates the book will be released later in 2013.

Mind you, you don't need to be agented to submit to Soul Mate and it has been seven years since Ms. Dowary hung her shingle out (per her LinkedIn profile) and she still has problems with spelling "Houghton Miffiln (sic) (lack of Harcourt)", but there! A sale. Cake for everyone.

I just got an inquiry about Jane Dowary, and was surprised to discover she's still in "business." Her LinkedIn has been elaborated: she has removed the reference to the "Claire Dunes Agency," corrected Houghton "Miffin" and added a claim to have started the agency at "the beginning of 2013." Farther down the page, under Certifications, there's this:
Quote:
Literary Agency Certificate
State of New Jersey
March 2013 – Present
I'm sure I don't need to remind anyone here that there's NO SUCH THING!

She has also added a client list:
Quote:
Trish Jackson, Capricorn Cravings (Published by Soulmate Publishing)
Gary Maier, The KeyMasters, The Tyrannosaur Rebellion (Published by Strategic Book Publishing)
Dave Bullock, The Last Rapier, (Current Project)
Jim Goddard, Jack and Charmian London, (Current Project)
Strategic Book Publishing. Need I say more?

So it looks like she's reading this thread and getting tips on how to make herself look better, fixing the spelling, which you mentioned here and other things too.

Strategic, isn't that the awful one? Soul Mate's a small publisher too, don't know much about them. Either way, it's not impressive to say the least.

Keep away from this "agent"

I am a writer. In the 6th September 2013, I received a contact application on my Linkedin account by the member Jane Dowary Litterary Agency (profile:
http://www.linkedin.com/in/janedowaryagency).
Being in search of an agent to represent a novel at the time, I sent her a query whether she would accept to review my manuscript for a professional collaboration. She consented to it. On the 4th of October 2013, she answered to me that I am a writer with great potential, to-be-best-sellerist, the book was great, it just needed editing in order to be published. She pointed out a collaborator of hers, a professional editor. In the meantime, she endorsed my writing skills on my Linkedin profile and wrote a very positive recommendation for me, visible on my profile (fr.linkedin.com/pub/nikos-vlantis/42/a56/6b8/). Encouraged by all this, I contacted the editor, I paid the editing fees (about a thousand euros) and had the book edited. Later on, I even reworked on the manuscript according to the editor’s guidelines and the comments made by J. Dowary. I submitted the final manuscript to J. Dowary on the 9th of January 2014. Two days after receiving the book, J. Dowary endorsed my linkedin profile for the skill of editing. I got the impression that I had done a good job. Four days later (13th of January), she sent me a template e-mail thanking me for my patience (of 4 days waiting?) and rejecting the novel on no grounds, something totaly contradictory with her first approach and her behavior till then. I asked her whether it was a matter of editing, but she did not even bother to answer my question. She had moved to new projects and was not interested anymore in my work.
I have reason to believe that she pulls some kind of scam. I noticed that she has a very active profile in Linkedin, constantly contacting, endorsing and recommending writers (which real agent does that?), who later on, I guess, according to her “professional opinion”, their work is great but needs editing. Maybe, some of them get e- or self-published (something that one can pull off by himself), after having paid the editing. Maybe there is actually an editor behind this profile or even this name, who searches to fund his freelance editing, fishing writers on Linkedin. There is no website for this “agent” apart from the Linkedin page and her behavior was lousy, unprofessional and unethical.
Keep away.

on the other hand....

Speaking only for myself, Jane has been wonderful to me. Not sure where the novel sits right now, but I can tell you that she hooked my screenplay (based on the novel) up with one of the top talent agencies in the world. This wasn't just talk. I know the "A" list agency and the person who is reading my work is an "A" list star. Verified and undisputed that the lead she gave me was and is valid. So for me, Jane is terrific and has done wonderfully for me. And, yes, I'm one of the authors she mentions on her website. I'm very happy for all she's done.

Nikos, could you contact me? My email is beware [at] sfwa.org. I've gotten a number of reports of unprofessional behavior by Jane Dowary, and I'd like to know the name of the editor. Thank you.

Jane has been fantastic for me. Because of her I have a screenplay of mine in the hands of an A list talent agency and an A list actress. Verified, not just talk. After 35 plus years working in show biz, I've certainly heard more talk than action, in this case Jane has been nothing but action for me.

Does that read to anyone else like one of those 5-star book reviews that reads, "This is the best book I've ever read. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one day. (Insert name here) is really a new author to watch."

Hi everyone, I would like to introduce myself to you. I am Jane Dowary, yes, the Jane Dowary you seem to be discussing. I wanted to try to clear up some of the misunderstandings (concerns) all of you seem to have about me. I believe I can sum them up by saying, I am simply new and am trying to start a new career. I really do want to help authors get their novels published and work the absolute hardest I can to get their work published for them. I know I am not as far along in the career path as other agents and that maybe a red flag, but I am hoping you all will give a new agent a chance and let me do what I can to make a good career for myself and help writers get their novels published.

And please allow me to clear about the issue about Nikos Vlantis. He is a wonderful writer with a great deal of talent but I didn't feel that I would be the best agent for him because I felt his work needed editing. I told this to him and he asked me to recommend a good editor. I turned him onto a good editor I happen to know and agreed to give the novel a second read. It was vastly improved but still not right for me and he felt slighted by this. I am very sorry to have offended him. That was not my plan. But he became angry anyway. I apologize to him if he reads this.

And to clear up Strategic Book Publishing and rights. Gary B. Maier is client of mine, but I am not the one who submitted his novel to SBPRA. He had submitted it to them on his own before he came to my agency.

Hi, Jane, or should I say Julia:
Quote:
The Jane Dowary Agency is a full service literary agency and was founded in March of 2013 and is owned and operated by Jane Dowary. Her real name is Julia Sarah Levin. She operates her agency under the name of Jane Dowary because she wanted to make sure that her career as a literary agent stood on it's own from her one-time career as a writer.
Julia Levin? That name rings a bell. A loud and wonky one.

I have a different theory about why you're operating your agency under the name of Jane Dowary. I think you're operating your agency under the name of Jane Dowary because you don't want people to know that you previously operated your agency under the name of Julia Levin and then Drew Montgomery.

Oh wait.

And guess what? I tagged you back in 2012, based on a hunch (this also presents a small problem for your website claim that you started your agency in 2013). Now you've pretty much confirmed it.

I'm sorry Jane, but I'm not buying it and I hope no one else does either. Not until you show significantly reputable sales. Soul Mate and whatever else you have isn't nearly as impressive as the publishers you state that you work with. Maybe you have some connections with them, but as far as I see it, you don't work with them.

You're "honest"? Why do you feel the need to state that? From this thread and how you screwed Nikos over is enough for EVERY writer to stay as far away from you a possible.

Again, I hope things change for you and things get better, but for now, it's not working for me.
