Just read a blog post written by an author who had Barry Zuker of McGinnis Associates as his agent. This author said that he was persuaded to sign with McGinnis Associates, but not long after was dropped without a word. Makes you wonder....

Sorry afouse. It is the address listed on their website, but I confirmed that it is bouncing back as non-existent. I'm going to mark the agency closed to queries until things can be figured out. Thank you.
