    Query tracker removed Drew and Rob today as well.

    I wonder if they're forming their own agency? The boss got wind and pre-emptively fired them?

    I got word today that Andrea's assistant is reviewing the manuscript I sent Rob and will get back to me. Can't ask for more than that.

    I also got a message today (from Rob's email address but sent by Andrea) letting me know they are reviewing the material (partial) I sent. Looks like they're addressing the departures in a responsible and prompt manner, which is a big contrast from some of the "black hole" stories I've heard about agents departing other agencies over the years.

    Oh, that's sad. It must have been unexpected if he was asking for material so recently. I wish them the best. Good luck to recent submitters.

    Oh, how sad about Rob. He seemed like such a nice man in my dealings with him.

    Everyone, good luck with your submissions.

    Queried Gordon Warnock on 7/8 - got the big R on 7/10. Disappointed, but I do appreciate the quick response time.

    I got a form from R Drew Perez today from his Hurst account with the Hurst sig.

    I wonder why he left at the same time Rob died and why he (or someone assuming his identity for e-mail purposes) is still listing himself as:

    "Drew Perez
    Literary Agent
    Andrea Hurst Literary Management"

    in his sig...

    Very strange.

    I queried Gordon Warnock at the end of June and got a partial request today. Still don't see any sales from him on the site, and they seem a little light on sales overall, but he seems quite nice and I'm interested in hearing how it goes.

    I noticed that P&E has this agency listed with an 'editing advisory.' Is that new, and is it because they also have paid editing services?

    Anyone had a successful fiction sale?

    Has anyone out there had successful fiction sales with Andrea Hurst's agency?

    My novel is YA fantasy, so I was a little surprised when they requested a partial, since it's not a genre they typically represent. Does anyone have experience with their fiction representation, particularly YA? Thank you!

    I just queried Nickie Motter with my upper Mg/lower YA fantasy. (It really teeters on the verge so I figured I'd give her a shot) She doesn't rep MG fyi--but mine is so in between I thought I'd try b/c she likes dark elements and twisted villains.

    Query was sent Dec 26th so here's hoping.

    EDIT*******QUERIED VICKIE NOT NICKIE...typo...but just so no one mistakes it in the future

    I hope you spelled her name correctly. It's Vickie (not Nickie). (I'm not trying to be snarky, just wanted to correct it here in case others query her from your post). Good luck with your querying!

    I just got a rejection from her on my partial. It was oddly blunt and rude-sounding, and pretty impersonal for a partial. Oh well, what can ya do? I hope you have a better experience!

    I don't know the specifics of this particular rejection, but a lot of times what looks blunt and rude sounding is an agent trying to be helpful instead of just giving a form reject.


    I welcome queries, but only when your book is ready.

    The days of personalized rejections are gone. Today, most agents use form rejections on partials and even full requests. Vickie is a new agent so she's likely using the current method of form rejections.
