    Lynn Seligman, Literary Agent

    I have an address:

    400 Highland Avenue, Upper Montclair, NJ, 07043

    and she's listed in P/E without any black marks (but no dollar sign, either). I can't find a website. Does anyone have further information?

    Thanks everso.

    Google Books! Thanks-- I honestly didn't think of that.

    I had the list you quoted (a shorter version, actually) from...well, someplace I ended up surfing to today, but didn't know if there was something obvious I was missing. Thanks again, Cao.

    Seligman

    I was about to send a query to Lynn Seligman, she is listed in Karen Fox's excellent list of agents, and she is my # 95 letter or queries to agents with no positives yet.

    Is she for real?

    She's currently listed in Jeff Herman's "Guide to Book Publishers, Editors, & Literary Agents 2011" with the 400 Highland Avenue, Upper Montclair, NJ 07043 address. A number is also listed, but if you want to get on her good side I wouldn't use it to solicit queries. No email queries accepted, only snail-mail.

    Submission guidelines:
    - Write a great soliciatation letter
    - Something interesting about your background & interest
    - Include sample of writing (10-20 pages)
    - Include synopsis or summary
    - Include SASE
