Anyone have any experience with the “entrepreneurial broker” Ken Atchity?

from what I read on their website, they don't take money. They only take your manuscript or screenplay if it is ready for them to look at, but they say if it isn't you can always send it over to their sister company for them to edit it and hone it and get it ready for the AEI to look at it. Of course that would cost a fee. They are very upfront about it. I recall seeing the AEI name in the credits of some movies recently.. I am a book writer with published books, but I think I will check them out further for the screenplay I am writing. Ya never know they may be what I need to get further in the business. I'm not afraid to put out money for my career as a writer. Heck I just paid for a college course at our local college on how to write a screenplay. I went to college before for 9 yrs studying Education and Psychology. I had to pay for that college too. So I guess no matter what we do in life there is always money to pay out, including rent, electricity, water bills etc. Ya know what I mean? Well nice talkin to y'all!
