Tom Williams - Has anyone heard of this chap?
http://www.williams-agency.co.uk/

A new-ish agency, methinks, but there's not a lot of info on the web. However, this is from his website....

Welcome to the Williams Agency. We are a literary Agency based in North London and we have a passion for great writing and great books. Currently we are a small agency but we are looking to build the client list and we are actively looking for novelist, biographers, historians, food and wine writers and more. If you are interested in becoming a client please follow this link.
We firmly believe that the web will help publishing and we actively work with our clients on digital projects. This site was built using free tools and we hope it will become a valuable home for our clients.
We hope you’ll stay in contact with us so don’t forget to follow us on twitter and foursquare.

Interesting. Not heard of them, but they could be worth keeping an eye on. I'm keen to see if anyone has had any dealings with them.

Two of the agency's clients are published, but I'm wondering if the agency made those sales, since it appears to be new. It'd also be nice if there were info on the agent(s) involved--as it is, there's no way to check up on their background.

I shall do some more digging...... with new, improved Google-Fu! One teaspoon per day, and all your hair will grow back.

Can I have some?

heh heh heh! A jar is on the way! Rub in hard under pale moonlight, dressed as Carmen Miranda. If it doesn't work, at least your social life will have increased. Quite dramatically, probably.

Googley says previous form for Tom Williams...

The first website address is current, but CaoPaux's address above for Tom's own site doesn't work anymore.

Doesn't seem to be much happening with this agency at present -- no 2014 deals and the 2013 deals seem to be mostly small publishers.

Going by his LinkedIn, he closed the agency in late '13 (to join Touchpress. Has moved on since.)
