    Sorry to hear that. I will say, I have another author friend who has queried three (or four?) books with D&G. The first ones were rejected as not being right for their lists or just not something they felt they could sell at that point. (Genre was oversaturated.) But they did keep after her to send them something else because they liked how she wrote, even if they weren't (yet) keen on the books themselves.

    It seems it is not unusual if they like an author's voice/style/etc to keep looking at MSs until they find one they want to represent. You know, if you have others or will in the future.

    Best of luck.

    They must be good. They ignored my query.

    I queried Rachel Stout on August 13th and I've yet to hear back from her (agency says you can re-send after two months). What's weird, though, is that I can't find her listed under their agents. Does anyone know if she still works for them? Should I re-send to another agent?

    She's still listed on QueryTracker, though the last response anyone posted is from mid-August.

    I queried Miriam Goderich on September 16th and she requested the full manuscript today. It's my first request for the whole shebang, but I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Update: Form rejection on October 22nd. Aw well.

    Querytracker indicates that she no longer works at Dystel, and her LinkedIn page corroborates this.

After talking with her, I felt confident she would be great to work with and took the week to fight off hordes of offering agents (if a horde can be made up of 1) and decided to accept Rachel's offer last Friday. Very excited to begin working with her.

    Queried Jim McCarthy with an occult detective thriller (think James Patterson meets Dean Koontz). Got a full request an hour later. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    It's a long, confusing story. Let's just say that the royalties for some of my books still go through them.

    I just wanted to drop in to share my experience working with the lovely Amy Bishop. She's not new to the agency, but recently started building her client's list, and I was fortunate enough to catch her attention. After I accepted her offer of rep, she has proved to be a very competent and enthusiastic agent. She responds to my email SO quick and is very hands-on about my project, which I REALLY appreciate. I guess, the fact that she has a creative writing degree, makes her have a really good eye for strengthening writing/plot/character dev/theme. I'm very glad to be working with her! To those that have queried to her, I wish you the best of luck!

    Got rejected from Michael Bourret - boo. Apparently this is a "no from one = no from all" company.
