    The Plains Agency (Christi Cardenas)

    Hi,
    Does anybody know anything about her or her new agency?
    I saw that the agency was created about 6 months ago...
    Is she the same agent that was working for The Lazear agency?
    Thanks

    Has clients at Tor, which is a good sign. Doesn't say what agency she worked for though.

    A good agent represents clients you've heard of. She represents Margaret Weis, one of the big names in fantasy (mmm Deathgate Cycle), and her name is on two major ($500k+) deals for Weis & Hickman. Must be the same Christi Cardenas who worked for the Lazear Agency, unless there are two Christi Cardenases representing Weis(es).

    I sent an equery on 1/11 and got a rejection on 2/2 (which seemed to be her catch-up day, as quite of few of us on the purgatory thread got rejections that day).

    Her PM entry says, "I will respond to you. Forgive me in being brutally honest, but I may respond immediately or we may be enjoying a different season when I get back to you."

    This is common with many agents. Between all the regular work they have to do, they will often set aside some time to work through a backlog of new queries. This time might be every few weeks, or even every month or so.

    So it's not something to worry about just because you haven't heard in a while when someone who queried two weeks ago got an immediate response. The other guy might have gotten a query into the middle of an ongoing session, while your query is waiting for the next one.

    I like that she's in Hudson, WI. My wife grew up there, and her family lives in River Falls.

    Thanks tbrosz. I think it's all the instant e-mails that have spoiled me.

    I e-queried her on April 1. I'll report back when I hear from her. And here's hoping it is sooner than later!
