Whew!

To conserve space I haven’t cross-referenced much, but I’ll come back and sub-label some of the multi-thread sections as soon as my eyes uncross. I intend to update stuff as they scroll off the first page. In the meantime, feel free to PM me with corrections and suggestions.

<ego> Much thanks and "You're welcome!" to all who've pinged me. :thankyou: </ego>

Cao, you're my new favorite person.

I'm going to close down this thread and let people thank you with rep points. :)

Do me a favor: check to see if you're still able to edit your own posts after a thread is closed.

Drat, that didn't work.

But look at Cao's shiny new blob!

Ooo, shiny! :D

Does everyone have a "Find (on This Page)" function in their browser? For Explorer it's Ctrl-F. Might be handier than Search in some cases.

Considering the potential for confusion, I think this warrants a separate post:

In case y'all aren't aware, the infamous ST Literary Agency recently changed its name to Stylus Literary Agency. They also formed an umbrella company The Literary Agency Group, Inc. They no doubt chose this name to create confusion with the legit (or at least competent) agency The Literary Group (aka Literary Group International).

So, what we’ve got here is The Literary Agency Group, Inc. posing as the “parent” agency for the following puppets:

The Children’s Literary Agency

The Christian Literary Agency

The New York Literary Agency

The Poets Literary Agency

The Screenplay Agency

Stylus Literary Agency

Which in turn refer writers to the paid services of:

My Editor Is A Saint

The Writers Literary & Publishing Services Co.

RapidPublishing.com

Just so we’re clear…

AVOID THESE COMPANIES!!!

2/07: Fletcher and pals claim The Literary Agency Group is bought by Writers’ Literary Agency & Marketing Company and rename some of their "agencies" (e.g. The Children's Literary Agency to WL Children's Agency). It's all the same people and still the same scam. See individual threads for details.

ETA:

4/08: The latest tentacles are the Children's Book Publishing Agency and the Writers Book Publishing Agency. See individual threads for details.

To whom it may bemuse, the Never-ending PA thread has been reopened. :box:

In other news, I've settled into a comfortable rut of updating the Index on Mondays and Thursdays. Be sure to PM me if you find a broken link or something.

Carry on. :D

July 2005...a time of introspection and refinement. :idea:

As some have no doubt noticed, the B&BC board is being overhauled to weed out irrelevant stuff, make old threads searchable, and condense them where practical. The Index should be updated within the next couple of days. Please pardon my dust. :D

I've got some questions for y'all...

How do you use the Index (i.e. scroll or search)? Would you prefer to have stuff like on-line markets and film agencies separated from the rest? Any other suggestions?

:idea:

Personally, I like an all-in-one list, so I don't have to know what an agency or market is in order to find it. I scroll. I'm also on a slow connection, so I browse with javascript and everything else that slows me down further off. Maybe one master list, with color-coding to indicate agency, publisher, on-line market, etc.?

And have I mentioned lately that you are a saint for doing this?

Thanks, Aconite, I try. :2angel:

Color-coding's a great idea! Let's see...how about blue for online markets and green for screen agents? Do those show up well, without being obnoxious?

Well, I've taken a stab at color-coding, 'though I'm sure I've missed half of them. Anyway, keep the feedback coming!
:hooray:

I have a couple of questions, Cao Paux. First, I don't see a thread on Loose ID. From everything I've dug up on the net, they are a pretty big erotica e-pub with some big names in their author list. Second, the link for Red Sage sent me to a thread on Limitless D2D? Are they the same company or is it just a glitch?

Thanks and you're doing a superb job keeping this up to date! Kudos!

Thanks!

If something isn't listed, it's because no one's asked about it yet (or has asked only within the last week and I haven't updated yet). As much as I'd love to have the One True Index, I've got a cat and husband to tend as well. ;)

As for Red Sage, it pops up in the Limitless thread beginning with post #34. Sometimes people ask about other companies mid-thread, so you might need to wade through to find what you're looking for. :)

Right behind you!
CaoPaux, I've read through the entire thread and I think it would be easier if you could just get me a great agent and a terrific publisher! hehe Seriously thanks for the hard work the thread is excellent!

Can you add something separate on Janet Kay? Her name (and George Tillman) is popping up with her sentencing and in connection with Desert Rose. People might not know who she is or why to avoid people who learned their 'trade' from her.

FYI
I official crown you board librarian. You know where EVERYTHING is!

How bizarre. I've already got Kay (and Titsworth) listed, but she's not coming up on "Search This Thread". Huh. My browser's "Find On This Page" and the board's "Advanced Search" work okay, though. :Shrug:
