Greetings, all. Newbie here. I DID check the Bewares Index... but found no mention of Carol von Raesfeld, an agent in Las Vegas. Her agency is "New Writers Literary Agency" -- NOT to be confused with the much-discussed scammer "Writers Literary Agency" (for which I thank you all very much). Or, at least, near as I can tell Raesfeld's agency is a whole 'nother creature. I did some searching and found that Raesfeld was a workshop presenter at the 2007 Vegas Valley Book Festival. I'm interested in her (and cautious) because she expresses an interest in unpublished writers. I am a long-time published columnist in a local newspaper, working on a book-collection of columns...haven't previously published a book. Hope this isn't too much info. Thanks.
