Q & A 20 Scam Agencies


Hey, EE, have you heard about all this Barbara Bouer and the shutting down of Absolute Write stuff that Miss Snark's been ranting about? Are you going to get involved with the plan?

I see you misspelled Ms. Bauer's name, to avoid a possible lawsuit. Clever. Evil Editor clicked on your link, but found no plan, just a list of the 20 worst literary agencies. In any case, while Evil Editor is all for any plan that exposes scam agencies, when it comes to actually getting involved, he's much too busy these days trying to keep his butt off of the 20 Worst Editors List.

Well, at least there's a big difference between "worst" and "most evil."

Hehe, that's what happens when you're posting when you should be working on insurance claims. Here's the link to the plan if any minions want to get involved. http://dsnight.livejournal.com/154479.html

I think the "plan" consists of repeating the link all over the blogoshpere--kind of a "chain blog," that will get the word out everywhere. Take one, pass it on.

The plan is that everybody puts a link like this one on their site:

<a href="http://www.sfwa.org/beware/twentyworst.html">Barbara Bauer</a>

to convince Google that folks searching for "Barbara Bauer" really want to go to that page over there.

Well, you are evil, after all.

The ants are trying to develop sign language. Stand by.

Dear Evil Editor,

I noticed that many of your comments are "asking for detail". Isn't that for a synopsis and a query letter should leave questions unanswered so that the agent hopefully asks for a submission...

By any strange chance is X Anne Rice?

Evil Editor is not an agent. Miss Snark is the one to ask about whether an agent wants to be tantalized with questions to which the answers must be requested.

Evil Editor wants to know about your book.
