Uh...yeah. For an unpublished novel.Christine N. said:Talcott Notch (their site just had a blurb that a children's client of theirs won an award)

I'd say yes and no on that one. I wouldn't want to get into a fight with Jim because I just plain wouldn't want to; it would distress me too much. Also, I've met slabs of granite that were less stubborn.Richard said:Mental note, never get into a fight with Uncle Jim.
Yes. Her remarks strike me as damned odd. However, I'm going to explain something else first.Cathy C said:Does it strike anyone else odd that a publisher would call an agent to compliment them on the negotiation? Shouldn't they, hmm . . . I don't know, maybe be on opposite sides?
This sort of implies to me that the author got a really bad deal.
That just sounds weird. Doing a fair job for their clients is what agents are all about. That's like sending a thank-you not to a restaurant for serving you dinner.We assisted every author with the contract on those 4 deals. We actually have emails from the publisher complimenting us on the fair job we did for our author.
Have at you, Georgina:We now have 4 deals. The most recent is with an UK publisher. (Note: because of the vitriolic people on these boards we don't post our deals because the instant we post a name, the really creepy and scary people that hate us start sending this crap to the posted name. We've got the documents and if ever needed our lawyers can pull them out.) We assisted every author with the contract on those 4 deals. We actually have emails from the publisher complimenting us on the fair job we did for our author. Yes, in two of the deals the author found the relationship, and in two of them, we found the relationship. In all 4 deals we provided SIGNIFICANT value to the contract negotiation and the post-publishing support. The thing that is lost in all this is that very, very few literary agents have even one deal under their belt. Also, we did a measurement in April and we had 68 open and active discussions with buyers about our authors' work. We expect a few more deals by the end of the year. You might also be interested to note that we also find really bad contracts for our authors and we recommend that they don't accept them. We've seen more contracts than anyone you know and we bring that expertise to our clients.
Hey. Give her credit for spelling "compliment" right.HapiSofi said:5. "...complimenting us on the fair job we did for our author." See above. Also, Publishers and editors say "our author." Agents will sometimes say "our author," but they're likelier to say "our client."
