Sounds like he was dealing with a lot. Before you sign a contract, there are questions you need to ask--including asking for contact info of a few of his current clients as referrals. Don't just giggle and sign. There are many sites that offer advice, and will tell you what to ask. Remember, you're business partners. An agent isn't your boss or slave driver. You're colleagues.

I wish you the best of luck..... If you are offered a contract, it is probably going to be very hard to say no, after all the guy is always listed as one of the top agents. I am glad I was at least able to warn you of what might happen. Me, I am back to square one hoping to get pulled out of the slush pile.......

I just rec'd a full ms request from this guy. How disappointing. I'm quickly losing respect for this profession. Do honest, decent lit agents exist anymore? They seem to be in the same category as many attorneys--bottom feeders who prey on those who depend on them for help. Bummer.

Sorry to hear about this, Edsxxx. Thanks for sharing your story. I hope you'll find better luck with a new agent.

After getting a glowing review of my MS, I signed a contract in March 2014. Heard nothing from Frank Weimann, I emailed him, he said the weather had been bad and that he fallen behind. Then heard nothing, emailed him, his response was that they had just installed a new computer system, nothing about by ms. May, I email him, he says he has someone editing the manuscript, I hear nothing. I emailed him he said the guy that was editing the ms got another job offer and left, he had to find someone else.

I contacted him in June, he said, I need to get on this, he said call him next Wednesday. I called twice that Wednesday, got the answering machine. Checked my email, he emailed me and said that were some problems with the ms and it would be best if we both went our own ways, he was cancelling the contract. Here is what he wrote about my ms, when he offered me a contract:


This is a remarkably enjoyable and light for such a heavy topic, a feat that you should be commended for. Even when on dangerous missions, where you are aware of the imminent threat to their lives, there is such a sense of brotherhood and adventure that it balances out perfectly. The combination of danger and excitement, mixed with politics and history makes for a great read.

Overall, it is a solid novel that doesn't require much work. Certain chunks need to be overhauled and refined, but I don't believe that it would take much time.

I want my in-house editor to take a look at it as well.

My opinion is that you did a terrific job on the manuscript. Please send me your mailing address, just in case I don't have it. I should be in contact later in the week.

Thank you,

Please don't be fooled by his list of high profile clients, they were years ago. After signing with Folio Literary Management, he never once contacted me. The truth is that the guy did nothing with my ms and couldn't be bothered. The guy is way beyond unprofessional...... If he offers you a contract, don't think that it means anything, he will drop you in a heart beat. If you Google him you will find posts back to 2004, complaining that he was doing the same thing back then. He has a history of just discarding authors. Run don't walk away from this guy............ Please help spread the word about Frank Weimann, so other writers don't have to go through this.......

Bottom line, the guy agreed to represent my novel and did nothing for 4 months and didn't even have the curiosity to call me,,,,,,Ever heard of Karma Frank, it will come back around.....
