    Unhappy Ted Weinstein Literary Management

    I did the research, I followed the directions and got an automatic response that was so quick I am certain no one looked at my email --it said to send things only through email, anyone have any advice?

    Also, why do many of these agents want business plans for material? Isn't it the agent's job to sell the book to the publisher, (handle the business end of the book)?

    Feeling discouraged, Four rejections this year...All I want is one yes.

    Business plans aren't entirely out of the question for non-fiction.

    Here's what P&E has to say about Ted Weinstein:

    Ted Weinstein Literary Management: $ "a full-service literary agency, representing authors of intelligent, adult nonfiction."
    Meanwhile -- how to look for agents:

    Thank you

    I will look into those two sites.

    It feels a bit like when you look for your first real job and they want experience --which you can't get without a job.

    Thanks for the info.

    Any new input on Ted Weinstein?

    I'll be glad to do the full proposal he asks for if someone's going to actually look at it. I have all the pieces but it will take some time to put it together in the form he wants & put it into an email. If they're probably not looking at new writers now & I'm like to get an auto-response, I'd rather do a query letter. Any suggestions? Please email me at sharman@gulftel.com of you've queried TWI & have advice. Thanks!

    An auto-response is just that "automatic" you SHOULD get it right away. It's just to let you know your e-mail arrived, or at least WHERE your e-mail arrived.

    A direct response will come later.

    Has anyone queried him lately? I sent something and did not receive an auto-response. Does anyone know if that is still something the agency does? Thanks.
