Hyman Agency anyone?
« on: October 11, 2007, 10:14:18 PM »
Hi all
anyone heard of this agency.  A friend of mind for a response from them today but I could not find their name on the predators and editors list.
Do you guys know anything about this agency?

Thanks
Heather

Hey Heather...

I have not at all heard of any outfit called The Hyman Agency.  And if it's not listed even on P&E (which lists the good, the bad and the ugly), I would naturally think this is not a reputable agency.  I could be wrong - All agencies have to start somewhere.  But there isn't a trace of such a literary group anywhere out there amongst my resources.

I would exercise EXTREME caution once again.

There is a Lisa Hyman listed on PE (Look in the L's) but I don't know if this is the same person or not.

I can find nothing else on Lisa or the agency.  So tell your friend to be very careful.  Do not sign anything, and definitely do not give them any money (but that goes for any agent out there.)

Thanks for the quick reply.  I can't find anything either.  I wanted to run it past you guys first, I don't want to rain on his parade because I got jacked by a scammer.  I don't hate, I appreciate.
But the Hyman Agency has my newly tuned spidey since tingling

Lisa is with IMG, I made a note to query her when I get my letter ready.
Could she have started her own agency?

I saw a very vague reference to a Jordan Hyman Literary Agency listed all of 4 times on the expanse of Google, but nothing at all to indicate this is a place you want repping your work.  Which is to say, step lightly & keep the spidey senses on high alert.

Don't just rain on his parade, cancel the whole thing.
