Writer Beware hasn't gotten any complaints about this agency. However, it has been in business for several years and as far as I can tell has made no sales (new agencies that are going to be successful start making regular sales within six months to a year of starting up). There's no evidence that any of the agents have relevant professional experience, and some of the advice pieces on the website are pretty poor (for instance, the one about how agents hate books written in first person).
Another warning sign: they claim to follow the AAR's "cannon" of ethics. KA-BOOM! They say it twice, so it's not a typo.
Why did you get concerned about them saying they follow the CANNON of ethics? I think that Jeff Herman's book says that he only puts AAR agents, and THOSE WHO FOLLOW THE CANNON OF ETHICS in his book? What's the problem?
