Veltre?
« on: July 03, 2010, 08:55:24 AM »
anybody submit via their online form?  Are they really agents?  Their site mentions management, consultants...not much info about them that makes me feel comfy.

I've submitted to them. Last August, I got a full request from them. I just subbed to them recently but I think they take a week or two to get back to you.
According to Publisher's Marketplace, he's sold film rights, nonfiction, middle grade, and adult fiction in 2010 alone.
In a word, legit.

Tried them last year with my first book. Got a rejection that began: "Congratulations on completing your novel!"  ???  I thought it was a bit of a teaser... But definitely legit. I have them on my list for my next wave of queries.
Will Tinkham's novels: THE CARY GRANT SANATORIUM AND PLAYHOUSE, THE GREAT AMERICAN SCRAPBOOK, THE ADVENTURES OF HANK FENN,
BONUS MAN, NO HAPPIER STATE and
ALICE AND HER GRAND BELL.

As of January 2008 it was still a legitimate agency. I received an offer of rep from Joe.
