Again, I wasn't mentioning them as red-flags. All I meant that the fact that she has zero track record whatsoever seems to point strongly to the fact that she provides no positive value. There seems to be a remote-but-non-zero chance that there is some kind of negative value.
I got a revise/resubmit request from Kaylee. It took about two months (December request for material - February revision request). The letter sounded like a form R till I read the last couple lines and saw it was a R/R. I don't know anything about their sales (or lack thereof) but I thought I'd chime in and say they do more than reject manuscripts.
Hard to be real upset when you have another agent and a sold manuscript. Congratulations.
Maybe your emails we're just lost or something?
I'm pretty sure I know an author who walked away from an offer from this agency (with a heavy heart, but level head on his shoulders). I won't say which author, because there's a reason he didn't mention exactly who the agent was but if you're wondering PM me and I'll send you the link to his blog post about it. I'm only speculating about which agent it was, but all flags match up to this agency. I'm sure he'd be willing to share if you asked him privately. I've suggested he contact WB and Preditors and Editors because he's seen the contract etc.
I'm not sure what to make of this agency because one of their newer agents seems so nice and enthusiastic, but why wouldn't they share their sales or even their clients? I'd love to think the best of people, but why make it so hard?
Okay, thanks. This was my first Twitter pitch party, and I was curious if it looked bad to agents or if they notice if you don't send the favorited/requested materials. If so, I'll send; if not, oh well.
Well, they sure don't seem to be selling any book manuscripts.
