renila: LOL. Judging from her typo 'changes' for 'chances' on her very short February blog I'd say she could use her own editor. Good luck with that.

From her blog:

I tried literary agenting twice and didn't like it either time. So, I'll leave that arena to others. What I do is help you get the manuscript in shape. I increase your changes of getting an agent. Happy Monday! "

Thanks liz and tarzan. At QT we have a no tolerance policy of agents who charge editing fees. This agent will be removed from search results and is "Not Recommended"

I had this agent on my query list, which I generated months ago while rewriting and editing. I went to her new website a few days ago because I'm querying now, and I saw a 'Pay Now' icon for her new 'editing' service. Sorry, but, in my mind, this is a serious conflict of interest. I took her off my list. I don't have a problem with editors for hire, but I have a problem with agents selling editing services. My two cents.

Hmmm. Checked her blog and it is rather disconcerting that she offers line editing, etc. for a fee. Does appear to be a conflict of interest from my perspective as well. Makes one wonder how devoted she is to taking on new writers as opposed to taking on business and charging for helping writers on their manuscripts. Could almost be a kind of 'bait and switch?' Or am I being too harsh? Don't know. Her credentials seem impressive, though. Any thoughts on this? I was a bit confused on the comment regarding her 'website' so I looked there. But she has no website. She has a blog and sure enough, first article you get is her offering her editing services. Yep, I'm not too impressed with that, as well.

Thanks Karatebum, I updated her genres. As for her blog, I just don't know. I'll leave it listed for a while longer in case it returns.

According to the GENRES tab above, this agent represents fantasy. According to Agent Query, she emphatically does not. ???

And clicking on her blog brings up a page with the message "Blog has been removed." Is this agent still in business?
