I don't think anyone minds a list of good agents. That one I'd like.

Dear Carol:

About all I can do in that regard is point you to www.agentquery.com. They come as close as you can get to a list of "good" agents.

Problem is, the agent/client relationship is so individual that no one list of 20 agents will cover the needs of all writers. You can also access the hardcopy guides for info the agents enter about themselves. And you can google-search Absolute Write to see what other writers (some of whom are clients, usually) have said about the agent.

If you don't want to do all the research yourself, you can hire it out. There's a company run by a man named Bill Martin, Agent Research and Evaluation, that will interview you to get your needs, then provide you with a list of agents and their profiles, including recent sales and the dollar amounts.

But the watchdogs do indeed need to be watched. The one who was sued and lost made some outrageous statements with nothing to back them up. In court you had better have more than an opinion. Years of covering them as a reporter drove that lesson home. Without reliable documentation you are in big trouble.

I'd be embarrassed to admit that somebody had ruined my reputation. I do a fine job of ruining my own, and it I'm not competent to ruin my own reputation, it would sure be putdown to think somebody else could do it for me.

At least you have a reputation to ruin. That is something, at least. Literary Agent Sues Sites for Ruining Her Reputation - Page 3 48152
