Title: MTLG
Post by: Aiala on March 25, 2009, 03:41:24 PM
To my amazed delight, I stumbled across the following on Publishers Marketplace's page for Movable Type Literary Organization(http://www.publishersmarketplace.com/members/jasonashlock/):

"Having found that that query letters do a fine job of showcasing one's talent in writing jacket copy or promotional material but rarely offer agents a useful preview of a writer's prosecraft, in lieu of query letters, MTLG asks that authors send the first ten pages of their manuscript, followed by a one page synopsis of the balance of the work, and a word count."

Well, it's about time! I do believe I'll send brave Mr. Ashlock a few sample pages.   :)

I agree he looks interesting, but did you notice that there are no names listed under his client list?  There are a couple other things on the linked site that have me a bit wary, as well.  But, hey, you got nothing to lose until he asks for money.

Perditors and Editors has him listed as being okay.
