AEG Publishing Group is claiming in this October 2008 press release to have acquired The Literary Agency Group (a.k.a. Writers Literary Agency) and Strategic Book Publishing/Eloquent Books (both have threads here).

It's yet another name change for this Florida-based organization, which has done business under a number of different names since 2001. (For a full listing, see this alert at Writer Beware). Businesses include fee-charging literary agencies, paid editing services, and now fee-based publishing.

The office of the Florida Attorney General has opened a public consumer-related investigation into AEG Publishing Group and its associated entities.
