    The Bell Lomax Moreton Agency

    http://www.bell-lomax.co.uk/

    Just thought I'd add this on as it's not already mentioned.

    Had a funny rejection for the "sample of the book" I sent them that they rejected after "extensive consideration".

    An extensive consideration of my email would have uncovered there was no sample and it was actually just a query as to whether they a) were taking on clients and b) would be interested in a manuscript sample.

    I subbed to them yesterday and received a personal confirmation. Definitely a first for me, and made them climb the list to the top five agents I'm keen on.

    Why didn't you send a sample? It's in their guidelines to send the first three chaps - Just curious.

    There weren't any guidelines when I subbed, and there aren't any up now. Where did you get their guidelines from out of interest?

    Isn't the slightly more alarming point that's being missed here is that they rejected my "sample" without there being one? Doesn't really inspire confidence that they're reading the samples being sent to them!

    Thanks for the info though guys, I will be avoiding though.

    Anyone have other experience with this agency they want to share?

    Form Rs (even if they send you the wrong form) are the norm, and a function of the email deluge they get every day - personally I wouldn't hold that against them per se.
