    I'm taking part in #pitchmad today and Mr. Ruben favorited one of my tweets. This has me rethinking about whether or not to send him any of the pages he's requesting.

    It's always wise to do your research on agents, so you have enough information to make your decision. PitMad is a great opportunity, but they don't vet the agents and editors--it's up to the writers to follow through, as you have done.

    His ten queries tweets put me off him to be honest. I got a bad vibe or a "shady" vibe. In general I'm wary of the agents who participate under those 500queries, 1000queries, tenqueries, and querylunch hashtags - don't know why, and maybe I'm wrong, but haven't submitted to any of them.

    Heard from a client that he is getting out of literary representation.

    That's odd, as he was on #PitMad yesterday. At least, he tweeted that.

    Again, research widely. He comes across as being a big-shot agent, but scroll back through this and the QueryTracker reports to get stories which tell an unsatisfying tale...

    Eric Ruben recently followed me on Twitter, so I just wanted to say "He's still at it."

    Here's his Twitter profile: https://twitter.com/TheEricRuben

    I'm so thankful I found this thread.

    Has he made sales? My googlefu is failing me. He tweets lots but beyond that and the complaints here not finding much?
