Hi - couldn't find a thread dedicated to this agency, so I've started this one. Anyone have any experience? They have one agent (out of four I think) actively seeking SF&F subs, which is good news for me IF they're good to deal with.

TIA!
John

define 'good to deal with'.
They are a highly reputable agency with a long track record of selling books to major publishers.

A disclaimer: I'm friends with Carole Blake, who is a joy to know; and my niece works at the agency.

This is one of the best agencies there is. Seriously good. They make very good sales for all their clients; and they work very deeply with each book, making all sorts of foreign and subsidiary rights deals which makes a huge difference to their authors' incomes--and it builds on their successes in an extraordinary way.

Follow their submission guidelines to the letter, and good luck.

You might like to read Carole's book, From Pitch to Publication. It's a bit out of date now but it's still the best book I've read about the publication process.

Thanks everyone for the feedback - they were high up in my ranked list of "agents for submission" already based on other parameters (yes, OK, I get a bit OCD about my process) but as one of the few agencies not mentioned in these hallowed halls I just had a bit of a wobble so thought it was worth checking.

I'll make sure to let you know how it goes :)

Desperately, impossibly sad.
