    The Rohm Agency (Wendy Goldman Rohm)

    I did a search and found no threads on this agency, even though the name strikes some deja vu. Does anyone have any experience with this agency?

    P&E still lists her with Waxman. PM has one sale for her (at Waxman), but everything else is either the books she's written or the workshops she runs.

    Hi, did you query her? I did, still waiting for a response, but today got a message informing me of her next workshop....

    When did you query Plum? I Q'd her two months ago and haven't heard a peep.

    Okay, I'm a bit pissed at this agency now.

    They never responded to my query from two months ago, but they added me to their mailing list for spam about a writing retreat they're hosting? For money of course.


    A list of things to do and avoid on your first page. (Not my blog post, kudos to the fabulous Anne Mini for compiling those.)

    Despite the fact I'll probably be added to Wendy's spam list, I queried her. We'll see what happens.
    It is with the deepest sadness that I must tell all of you that my wife, Irene Schaft, passed away on Monday, 9 August 2010 from a massive stroke.

    In lieu of flowers, please consider making a contribution to Parker Paws, http://www.parkerpaws.org/donate.html a local animal shelter.

    Irene's system will only be up infrequently for the next few weeks, and her mail will not be checked regularly. Any messages of condolence can be sent to her husband George at schaft@schaft.com

    Irene's blog: [URL]http://sybilsimon.com/[/URL]

    Anyone working with this agency? I was thinking of querying but I noticed there are editing services offered on the website, which is sort of offputting
