    Bond Literary Agency (Sandra Bond)

    I did an AW search for Sandra Bond, Bond Literary Agency and did not find anything. Does anyone have any experience with her? She does not appear to have a website.

    Here is the Publisher's Market Place link for her:

    Thank you Cyia. I did find out that much, I apologize for not saying so.

    She's updated her query preferences since then and does accept email queries at sbbond@aol.com. She's in Denver and connected to the DU Publishing Institute.

    Pretty quick with the e-query response time too. 2 weeks from query to partial request for me.

    Polite correspondence from start to finish.

    Generic rejection note (though quite nicely worded) after requesting two chapters emailed as a Word attachment after first reviewing my query emailed to the address mentioned in this thread.

    Not deterred, I'm going to now try sending her my New Age novel in case that strikes a more resonant chord.

    It has been awhile since someone has posted. Does anyone know how quickly Sandra Bond replies to a query?

    Sending query

    I just sent a query to Sandra this morning for my baseball-themed historical fiction. I'll post back when I receive a response. Has anyone else sent her a query recently?

    Sandra Bond is my agent, and recently sold my debut mystery novel to St. Martin's press (Thomas Dunne books) in a multiple-book deal. She's not only legitimate but fantastic and very good with communication.

    I can't speak to her query procedures because I connected with her at a conference, but she responded on my full very quickly and sold the manuscript within five months of signing me. Clearly, I am biased in her favor, but I can tell you I've been nothing but pleased with her.

    Thanks for the insight. She does sound like she is a wonderful agent. I'm hoping that because my book has topical similarities to some of her other clients' work that I won't get passed over immediately and be given some serious consideration. It's only been a couple of weeks since my query, but I'll be sure to post back with whatever response I get.

    Thanks again.

    Thought I'd post her website and contact info:

    Her website: http://bondliteraryagency.com/

    Her submission email: queries@bondliteraryagency.com

    And a mention of fiction she doesn't represent:

    "Please note that I do not represent romance, adult fantasy, science fiction, poetry, or children's picture books."

    any thing new about this agency?

    I queried the Bond Agency in March and haven't heard back. I assume it's a rejection.

    Does anyone have any information on Becky LeJeune? I think she's a new associate agent there - I saw something on Publisher's Marketplace about her looking for more YA and specfic.
