Odd. at their site, it says they are a publishing company. But they say have a literary agent. Here is what they say:

Send a short email query letter to our literary agent, Maria Williams.

But then the so-called agent's email is an AOL address:

It says to paste a short sample of your writing into the body of your email. They want to know if you have also submitted to other agents.

But here is the kicker. As with many other lit agents, they say "If you don't hear from us, it means we pass."

What does that mean? How are we supposed to know how long to wait? Would it hurt them to at least send out a reply to your email?

As if that wasn't bad enough, they add this line: "Please do not call to follow up."

That kind of thing always baffles me. Aren't these agents supposed to be working for us?

: I just found out about a new literary agency, Panic Girl Press, that is taking submissions. The literary agent is Maria Williams and she is looking for YA novels. They explained on their website that they will apply back to you in a timely manner. What is really interesting about this website is they are focus on the woman's voice. I just submitted my query to Maria this week. There website is I think you can apply to Maria at I hope this help and good luck.
