  1. Hi – just a note about some broken links:
    Andrew Mann (entire site)
    Carolyn Jenks (page only – site is still there)
    MBA (page)
    MarJacq (page)
    Makepeace Towle (site)

    Also, some confusion regarding The Booker Albert Literary Agency if this is a list of UK agents – the street address is given on their website as in Pennsylvania!

    • Thank you for the heads-up – I have fixed links where appropriate (Makepeace Towle appear to be no more…I will keep an eye out for information about that)

  2. Robert Dinsdale seems to have left agenting. His website is down, and his Twitter account makes no mention of agenting and links to a new domain.
