Anybody know anything about Lorella?
Anybody signed up with her?
What books/authors has she sold?

She's in Notting Hill.
She has a web site under construction.

Has a record of solid sales (RH, S&S, Orion, et al.), for both fiction and non-fiction. IMO, the only negative is her involvement with Chapter One Promotions (she judges their novel competition).

What's Chapter One Promotions and why is that a bad thing?

http://www.authoradvance.com/agencies/lorella-belli-literary-agency-lbla --> it seems she accepts postal queries, but looking at the bottom of the page she has responded to email queries so that might be all right too.

Our thread on Chapter One is here (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46886). Mostly a matter of dubious value and slow payment of prizes, if paid at all.

She's a regular at the Winchester Conference doing one-to-one meetings

She turned me down. She says:

"Unfortunately given the large number of submissions received, we are not considering new material at present."

I know of her from Winchester as well, but I've never met her as she doesn't rep my genre. I seem to remember there being a chance to win lunch, or maybe a working breakfast, with her one year, which gave me the impression she was one of those flashy stilettos-and-gin type of London agents :)

I was wondering if anyone has heard of them. They're in the writers' handbook, founded in 2002, it's in London and is a member of the association of authors' agents, but their website has been under construction for absolutely ages.
