This agent only accepts celebrity clients. Don't query unless you are a ghost writer.

Hi betterlate2
I wasn’t referring to this agency when I said be careful, if that’s what you’re worried about.

I was referring to the commenter using one of those agent listing books. They tend to be outdated before they even hit the shelves. And, of course, they can’t be updated once they’re printed. So, be careful because the information they contain is often outdated and no longer correct.

Patrick, can you elaborate on your comment of Oct. 18? Is this a legit agency? Is there some reason to "be careful".

markelliottcreative, Eddie Pietzak left this agency back in 2016. Be careful with those listing books, they tend to be out-dated before they're even printed.

Question, Publishers Marketplace says query with the first 10, however, the website says send a letter and synopsis. Thoughts on which is more accurate? There's also an email listed but a form to fill out too...?
