Questionable agent worse than no agent?
8/6/2004 2:09:00 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

This is true. See my prior posts.

I was just informed by the Florida Better Business Bureau that I'm getting a refund from my agent, ST Literary. It only goes to show that if you feel you've made a mistake, and you complain through the proper channels, good businessmen will give you what you're due.

Putting all that aside, it still doesn't change the fact that signing with this agency caused me three weeks of anger and resentment toward the writing business. It affected my writing in ways that it shouldn't have. Finding out about the past of the company president at ByteAudio in the way I did from the writer discussion boards sent me into a downward spiral that I'm only now recovering from. If it hadn't been for finding that out, I might've stayed with an agency that wouldn't be good for me.

I shouldn't have to worry about what my agent is doing; I should be free to write, and yes, even feel nurtured by the agent, especially if they've been around. I got none of that. I got a sense of betrayal, not from anything they'd done specifically, but from finding out about the SEC case against ST's company president. This was a severe loss of trust to me. He said this is due to my inexperience, and he's right, but only in the sense that I was not experienced enough to check him out BEFORE I sent him the money. I could have saved time and worries!

If you're reading this, my earlier statements still stand. Don't sign with ST Literary. Don't give them money. I'm telling this writer to writer and there's now nothing in it for me but to possibly save you weeks, months or even years of unnecessary anguish.
