    follow the author links, go to their websites and you'll see that the contact information does not mention A+B works or the agent as a person to contact. plus, when I see someone who has lots of experience... as they claim to have, I expect to be able to find something else online... interviews, author praises..etc.

    so I thought I would see if anyone here has worked with them, knows authors who work with them, have met them at conferences...etc.

    Cheers,

    It's a super small agency, but as far as I know, legit. I queried them in March, but got no response. It does state on the website that they might be a no responder though, so not unexpected. Sorry, I don't have anything more than that.

    Here her AQ page: http://www.agentquery.com/agent.aspx?agentid=585

    Googling "by Amy Jameson at" finds sales reports for her at both current and previous agencies.

    Amy spent 7 years at Janklow and split off to form her own firm. I queried her on 4/19, but haven't received a response.

    I sent Amy a query back in early May, but never received a response. Alas. Like Neener said, I think she only responds if interested.

    She never responded to my April query. I queried her on a 2nd project 8/28 and she hasn't responded. I believe her website says she doesn't respond if not interested.

    Partial request for me as well from Trevor Redd, making me wonder if he's a "new guy" in their office. I know someone else on QT got a partial request too.

    Good luck!

    When did you guys query? I just sent one today, curious what the wait time is.

    I guess two weeks is too early to nudge on a full, right? I just gotta know!

    Quick reader indeed. I think I'll query, if only to have the refreshing experience of quick requests/rejections.

    I got a 50 page partial request from Camilla Schulte today (query sent on Saturday, June 04, 2011 2:18pm). Unfortunately, my email to her got cut off at about page 34, so this might be a little bump in the road.

    I queried Amy Jameson on 6/25 and got a request for a 50-page partial on 7/8 from Camilla Shulte. I submitted the partial on 7/9 and I'm waiting to hear back.
