    Elite Finesse Literary Agency

    This agency seems to fit my needs. But, for me, a red flag went up when I read that they accept unsolicited manuscripts without prior queries. They claim to have placed over 200 previously unpublished authors in recent years. They do not have a web site with lists of those books and authors. Anyone here have experience with them?

    I can't find a single good comment about them from any writer and they are listed on the beware list.

    If the name sounds more like that of a "classy" escort agency than a reputable literary agency, it's usually not a good sign.

    I have since located information. One site calls them one of the top 20 worst agencies in the country. Red flag was well heeded.

    I've also heard that they're listed on the beware list.

    If they are offering you a contract, ask them for a list of books they have represented that have been published. My agent sent me this list when she sent me the contract (I hadn't asked for it, either).

    I would still verify that they actually represented the authors on the list, but it would at least give you a start.

    Finesse is a scam. I have spoken.

    I suggest that you avoid them.
