    [Agency] Andrew Nurnberg Associates

    http://www.andrewnurnberg.com/contact.aspx

    I just sent a query to Andrew Nurnberg Associates. However, my Gmail address was rejected as spam. I did put both "query" and "submission" in the subject line. No attachment.

    I tried with another Gmail addy, and two hotmail and one yahoo addresses, which were all rejected as spam. So something must be wrong in the body of the e-mail. Is that possible?

    I will send a hard copy later. But being treated as spam makes me feel bad, especially after a lot of rejections.

    This sort of thing always makes we wonder if the recipient even knows their email is rejecting mail they wish to receive. Maybe a separate postcard notifying them of your experience as you attempted to contact them online is in order?

    Were there any live links in the body of your email, such as to your webpage or even your email address? And make sure your email provider isn't attaching ads when it sends.

    I emailed my sub to this agency about two weeks ago and it worked fine. The respective agent even had the kindness to confirm my email. I can't imagine why email from three different providers should get rejected as spam. Don't know if this helps...

    This is funny. I tried another time today before printing a hard copy. Guess what? It wasn't rejected.

    Where was the problem? Subject line ! I removed the genre.

    Since when "fantasy" is a spam keyword ??? Unbelievable.

    EDIT

    Just found the rejection in spam folder. It didn't work at all. Sigh.

    contacted them about the spam problem. But don't think they'd care. after all they are flooded with submissions.

    Jenny Savill read my partial in less than twenty-four hours and asked me what time it was in Saskatchewan. They're reading the full for my YA urban fantasy and said they would get back to me pronto.

    I am freaking out, possibly.

    I've been having the same thing happen to me for another agent's email, so if you do happen to figure this out, please toss me a note and let me know what you did.

    I actually sent them an international fax.

    dunno if the problem is solved now or not.

    Has anyone dealt with these guys? I went to their website and followed the guidelines but my email was rejected as spam. What gives? Thanks for your help.

    If you go to the "Whos Who" page on their web site, they have a form for contact to the London Office, which offers choices for those agents who also are responsible for U.S. contacts. Try that possibility.

    Tried again today. Submission was still rejected as spam. Looks like they don't care at all.

    What a waste of time! I won't deal with this agency any longer.
    I'm a sponge absorbing all your nice advices.

    And if you like, would you mind taking a look and commenting on my query in SYW? Thank you.
