Interest #1 Alexandra Nye
There is one reason that this agency may not be genuine in its interest for Apostles and that is because it charges a reading fee. There is an unsaid rule that states no agent or agency should charge a reading fee, all fees come out of contracts and deals made for the author. Therefore I am wary of this agency, but I may consider them.
Dear Mr Took,
I have read your sample pages with interest. This does look to be an appealing and original title, and we would be more than happy to read the complete MS. However, I must advise that we charge a reading fee for more substantial feedback. The fee is £2,00 per 1000 words.
...omitted for clarity and confidentiality
I look forward to hearing from you,
