    Does anyone know anything about Stephanie Koven? I know she reps fiction and non-fiction but I don't know any other specifics.

    Sorry if this has been asked previously, but does anyone know what Rebecca Gradinger reps? I've seen that she does literary and commercial fiction, but nothing specific. I have YA light fantasy and wasn't sure whether to send it.

    Me again--someone on another site answered my question. For anyone interested, Rebecca reps YA but is not interested in seeing fantasy and sci-fi.

    So I saw this in Publisher's Lunch today:

    "Rebecca Gradinger has left Janklow & Nesbit Associates and launched Finchley Road Literary, a boutique agency specializing in literary fiction, up-market commercial fiction, narrative non-fiction, memoir, humor and pop culture."

    Anybody know how to contact this agent now?

    I want to send a query to Luke Janklow, but haven't been able to find his submission requirements anywhere. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    My husband's just subbed something to Luke. The agency web site has very little information but there's a bit more detail here:
    http://www.wordhustler.com/agents/1/...bit-Associates

    Hubby sent a cover letter, synopsis and the first three chapters.

    P.S. T'other half says: "You must put a postscript at the bottom of your cover letter stating -- 'Please accept Doug Pugh's manuscript before you accept mine.'"

    Fingers crossed for you, sjordan.

    Forgot to mention that hubby's cover letter included his query.

    Luck to your husband as well, Deer.

    The book is actually my son's. Since he's busy with college, I am his editor/business manager at the moment.

    How do I get in contact with agents from Janklow & Nesbit Associates? Their website doesn't say anything but the address.

    That's because they want you to mail your query to that address. Just address it to the specific agent you wish to query.

    But I don't even know any of the agents names or who would be good for young adult fiction.

    Try AgentQuery: http://www.agentquery.com/default.aspx E.g., searching for "Janklow" finds several agents and their specialties.

    Queried Luke Janklow 5/11 via snail mail. Received boilerplate rejection letter 5/23 saying he can't take on new clients except if somebody's writing really lights his fire (to paraphrase).

    Question Tina Bennett @ Janklow & Nesbit

    Hi Y'all.

    Does anybody know how Tina Bennett feels about e-queries? 1000LiteraryAgents.com gives her e-mail address but submission guidelines just say query w/ SASE. I'd rather e-query if she's okay with it, but I don't want to burn that bridge if she's not.

    Also, has anybody had any personal experience with her? She sound like a dream agent.

    Thanks for any info you can give me.

    There's trace of both an editor and a marketing agent named Dan Gilmore, but no literary agent. Where did you find him listed?

    Pretty stoked to have gotten a full request from PJ Mark off a snail query. Took about a month.

    I don't get. All it shows are two addresses, plenty of covers, and that's it. No agents page, no submissions requirements, zip.

    is Janklow&Nesbit.com closed to new authors?

    http://www.janklowandnesbit.com/

    The web site seems a little impenetrable.

    Couldn't they just say they aren't looking for new authors? Or am I being stupid here?
