    Sophie Hicks Agency

    Hi there, does anyone have any experience with Sophie Hicks Agency? I know the agents there used to work at Ed Victor, but I wondered whether anyone has had any experience with the new(ish) agency.

    Thanks Here's the link:

    I don't know anything about the agency, but it looks like they represent some big names.

    Yeah, they represent books from big publishers alright. The P&E checks out with a dollar sign which means they make money, all great signs. And they have recent news on their books so they're current. I see they are into books 9+ so I thought to give them a try with my YA novel. I'll post if I hear anything.

    Has anyone had any querying experience? I'm always interested to know what kind of turnaround to expect before I settle in for the long wait

    I'm still waiting on a response from mine and it's been since January. It's not looking good.

    Their Submission Guidelines say to send submissions to submissions@sophiehicksagency.com. And yet on the "About" page, an individual email address is provided for each agent.

    To those who've submitted: did you send to an individual agent, or the generic submissions address?

    I submitted to an individual address, not the submissions one... Probably overlooked that
