I would be cautious about going with this agency because it seems that within 2 years she's only had one sale and there is no list of clients on her website. If I find more info I'll let you know.

Thanks, Alexandra. I was a bit nervous about the lack of information on her site.

I came across a blog where a writer met her at a conference and thought she was very nice. No more information than that.

From what I've seen I'm more worried about inexperience on her part and not an actual attempt to take your money. I still haven't found any additional information but I will keep looking.

She is a member of the AAA, which requires members to prove a minimum income level from book sales before they can join. It is odd she doesn't have sales info on her website, but if you Google her name, a number of sales reports and published clients do show up.

Many thanks, Victoria.

I did a Google and some hefty sales came up.

Now a problem -- some sites say she represents fiction while others say she doesn't. (Mind you, Internet information isn't always accurate -- one site said she agency opened in 2004 while another said 2007.) I guess I have nothing to lose by contacting her via email and see what she has to say.

Thanks Jeanne.

No postage involved, so I have nothing to lose.

According to their website, they only take European authors.
