    Oh my, they're getting smarter about what they put in their letters to authors. If anything, they're now in PA's league when it comes to lying.

    I really like that bit about "most agencies only have 1 or 2 deals every couple of
    years, if that" which if a writer stopped for a moment to consider would immediately render itself as a lie since most agencies couldn't survive on that little. Why if that was true, then there must be 10,000 or more literary agents in the US alone just to handle all those books sold to publishers who require submissions come from an agent.

    Yep, statistics told PA style.

    For another viewpoint that's well informed on this, visit Miss Snark and read her column dated 12/21/05 at URL where she demolishes the Children's Literary Agency claims.

    When it comes to PA, the royalty check and the reality check arrive in the same envelope.

    Remember to be kind to writers who step in PA. They really don't know how bad it smells.

    The difference between PA and WLA? None. Both have the stench of dead and dying books emanating from their doorways.
