    I have no info about the Barer Agency but Sterling Lord (Neeti Madan) sent me a nicely worded rejection , signed by the agent (I assume). It was on very nice letterhead stationary and appeared very professional.

    Good luck.

    I had a wonderful experience with Ms. Barer. Though she passed on my full, it was the loveliest, most gracious and encouraging rejection letter I've ever received.

    Two months ago, I sent her an email query about a novel similar to one she recently sold, but I haven't heard back yet. I'll probably try again in another few weeks if I don't hear something sooner.

    I know someone who has Julie Barer for an agent and thinks she's super. She sounds very professional but also very human and supportive.

    I met her at a conference. She was very sweet and professional, and I only wish she represented the kind of genre I write.

    I equeried her on July 10 and received a ejection on the 15th. If yours was an e-query, you might want to resend it, Trish.

    One of the lovliest, most thoughtful rejections I've ever gotten. She had the full for about 9 weeks.

    Julie Barer

    I just e-queried Julie Barer at Barer Literary and got an immediate auto-response confirming the reception of my query and telling me they only respond to e-queries if interested in the project.

    hi all

    Sent an email query with the first 3 chapters on Dec 7th and got a request for a full on Feb 18th. Had pretty much written them off as an "R", so this is a piece of unexpected good news

    Anyone have any info on response times for fulls? I got a request on Feb 19th from Ms. Barer's assistant William Boggess. Only been 5 weeks so I'm not really expecting anything so soon.

    Alas... got a form rejection letter in the mail. Some general comments but nothing that indicated anyone had actually taken the time to read the book. Ah well. When someone takes the time to read your partial and then request a full, it would be nice to get some feedback to help with future revisions.
