@writer99. I'm not sure. Sometimes agents have enough clients and those clients could already be linked to multi-book deal, so those agents might not need to make sales (there could be other reasons as well), but like I said, I'm not sure. There are probably far better people to answer that question because I don't have a PM account anymore, so anything I can see is usually a profile created by the agent.

For those wondering what is going on with this agency, I have been snooping around Twitter and it seems that Miriam Kriss has made her first tweet in 3 years on 6/17/24, which isn't even close to her record of time elapsed between tweets. Between the change of Isabelle's picture and Miriam's surfacing on Twitter, both occurring within a day or two of each other, I don't know what to make of this agency, but it seems that maybe our concerns have elicited a response from them. I'll end with this. Miriam has been a top agent for a long time, so anyone that might be lucky enough to sign with her would be in great hands.

@shabaescaba While we're on the subject, Miriam Kriss hasn't posted any sales on Publishers Marketplace since 2021. Does anyone know about that? She was VP of Irene Goodman before starting her own agency so I'm wondering if that info is out of date.

I've received no response from Looking Glass Literary & Media as of yet, but I suspect it is incredibly busy as most agencies are, so all we can do is practice patience. If I hear anything from it, I will update. I see the changed photo on Atlanta Writers Conference. I haven't checked Linked In. Not sure why the recent change, but the timing is a bit strange (within the last few days...hmmm). Hey, at least, it is more realistic as cliocat23 has said.

For what it's worth, it looks much more realistic but I just checked that new headshot on "Is It AI?" and it still says 97% likelihood the new headshot is AI.

Make of that what you will.

Headshot for Atlanta Writer's Conference and Linked In has been updated to what appears to be a non-AI photo (to my amateur eye)
