(Please Note: Because the author cares deeply about protecting the morality of children, she strongly encourages others, especially parents, to know that her fiction is not appropriate for minors.)
Toni' s Vintage!
The Toni Breland Agency, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is devoted to promoting the creative efforts of writer Janet Walker. In this role, the agency applauds projects and public figures that highlight classic, vintage styles (like those pictured above and below), while it encourages intellectual discourse about the fascinating and often secret aspects of women’s sexuality, a major theme in Ms. Walker's fiction.
The Toni Breland Agency
Who (or what) is Toni Breland?
Toni Breland is two things. First, Toni is a symbol of the high fashion that was dominant during the late 1940s, entire 1950s, and early 1960s. This era is noted for its striking, international haute couture images and its emphasis on overtly feminine fashions. These decades also promoted the version of ladyhood seen in the wardrobes of such prominent women as Coretta Scott King, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, and model Suzy Parker, a favorite subject of iconic fashion photographer Henry Clarke. The Toni philosophy supports the belief that, counter to the thinking of too many designers today, a woman’s sex appeal often finds best expression when she is artfully draped rather than when she is overly exposed.
Secondly, Toni Breland is the pseudonymous author of a scandalous novel, My Brother’s Wife: An Old-School Soap, written when she was “a juvenile”—her words—and not yet the symbol of sophisticated ladyhood she would become. The novel’s author was so unimpressed with the story she created, and so disenchanted by its profane heroine, Freddie Glass, that at one point she burned the manuscript and computer disks that contained its files. Fortunately, the original files were still buried in the hard drive of a computer that had crashed, so when she had a change of heart, the author hired a tech, who labored for two hours to retrieve the manuscript. Several years later, she finally listened to friends and quietly published the novel. Her interests have since moved on, and she has declared—despite repeated requests from fans across the country—that there will not be another Toni Breland novel. She is, instead, devoted to new interests and is mildly amused by the fact that the novel managed to accumulate a small but devoted fan base.
We are devoted to promoting the creative ideas of writer Janet Walker, including her fabricated fashion symbol Toni Breland. At present, that's a total of six books and other creative/promotional products associated with those works or their author. For that reason, we are not accepting queries or submissions from any other writers.
We do, however, wish you success in your search for an agent.
