He speaks frequently at writers’ events, writes an eclectic blog, and serves on the Board of Trustees for his local public library.

    When I saw this listing, I had to scroll to the bottom to see what others have said. I was surprised to see only one negative comment. Beside giving the used car salesman smile, this firm he “works” for is rather questionable. It appears to be another desperate attempt to suck money out of someone desperate to publish, so desperate that they would pay money to a site that obviously plays with its statistics to make it appear that digital is dying and hard book sales are having a come back. An “Agency” that charges for services before anything would even happen. I am certain that if you signed up on the site, you would be getting a phone call from someone like Steven Hutson trying to sell you services. Peggy S, I expect that he rejected you in hopes that you would come back for their services and he would get his commission from them. If you google this fella, you will see what “Book” Steve Hutson wrote, and see how he seems to be so unprofessional and working for several “agencies.”

    I would recommend avoiding this agency. The snarky tone of the website and the submission instructions should have warned me, but I spent quite a bit of time on the query, only to receive a rejection within minutes (which probably gives a good indication of how busy he is.) The rejection didn’t bother me, but the comments were rather mocking and just short of rude–not exactly wise for someone who seems to have a rather small and undistinguished client list. The irony of his immediate dismissal of my project is that the full manuscript was requested by the Jane Rotrosen Agency four weeks ago, and while they may very likely not offer to represent me, that’s certainly an indication that the manuscript is worth considering. I wouldn’t waste the time.
