Gosh, Michele Glance Rooney has sold enough romance manuscripts to be in the top ten agents list for representing romance? Amazing, simply amazing.

By the way, what are the titles and ISBNs for some of those romances that Michele sold?

Ladies, don't even try to approach one of the stalwart editors from the old days. Today's landscape is changing so fast it makes your head spin. Note: Go for a referral and follow it up immediately.

Michele Glance Rooney has long been tagged as a scammer, as most of you know who've been around for awhile...

Elaine Koster is deceased.

Farris Agency accepts queries only through referrals or writers' conferences...

It'd be nice if this kind of thing were updated periodically so that we don't waste our time--especially with clunkers like the Rooney reference.
