skeptical_sparky said:My wife submitted full manuscript to the well-maintained information on this forum, ST Literary. This was after she had asked me if I can find any nasty garbage on them, I told her that they don't have any bad marks from the BBB. So naturally, I feel like rancid dogmeat after reading this thread.
She asked me to check into Stylus Literary after she received an email from them asking for $150 ontop of the $129 that she had already paid them. To see the hurt in her eyes after I told her what St Literary/Stylus was up to, devastated me last night. So, now, I am going to help her find a "for-real" agent.
Thank you all for the hours of wonderful, mind-opening reading last night.
I know how your wife and yourself must feel. I had pretty low evening last night but when i woke this morning I thought it's time to move on. I picked up my copy of writers and artists yearbook and found another agent. I've just come back from the post box after posting my submission and i felt a lot better.
The good thing that has come out of all of this is that I (and now your wife) have found an excellent new resource that i never knew existed and for which I am very grateful.
As for how I came to find the ST agency if found them on the internet but their website is quite misleading as it states they don't charge and that they seek clients all over the world which is what interested me.
