Considering doing one of those gift books, was wondering if someone had any comments about them, one way or another. Thanks in advance!
Noble Literary Agency appears to be very new, with no sales as yet. It's an offshoot of Chameleon Brands, which looks like a successful book/gift/toy/general merchandise packaging firm. Chameleon seems to have worked with a number of major book publishers, so there does look to be quite a bit of industry experience there. However, book packaging and agenting are not the same--and there's at least a potential conflict of interest, if the literary agency were to feed authors into the packaging part of the business. Anyone signing up with them might want to scrutinize the agent-author agreement with extra care.
