    [Agency] Sanford J. Greenburger Associates

    Does anyone know anything about Sanford J. Greenburger associates? I checked the index and there didn't seem to be anything on them.

    Thanks!

    Maddy,
    Sanford J. Greenburger is quite a reputable agency. They represent Dan Brown (the DaVinci Code). Matt Bialer handles sci-fi/fantasy/horror.

    Thanks James & HorrorWriter. I haven't been offered a contract or anything by them (I wish), I'm just wondering if I should query or not. Sounds like I should!

    I believe they only take hardcopy streetmail queries.

    Follow their guidelines to the letter, and best of luck to you.

    Question Nick Ellison

    Has anyone here worked with Nick Ellison, whose agency is part of Sanford J. Greenburger? If so, would you recommend him as an agent?

    Nick Ellison

    Thanks, I did see it, but there's no comment there from someone who's actually worked with Nick Ellison. That's what I'm looking for. I know he's a reputable agent, and Sanford Greenburger is well known, but I'd like to get some personal feedback. A while ago I signed up (for a different project) with someone from a prestigious agency, and she ended up being unreliable, unprofessional and incompetent. So this time I'm going to err on the side of caution before I sign a contract with an agent.

    The woman sold film rights for at least two books that have been made into major motion pictures (I sat "at least" because I only recognize The Nanny Diaries and Midnight in the...), and she's been with two very prestigious agencies. Maybe she's diversifying into selling books now and either hasn't made sales yet, or just hasn't updated her bio since she has.

    I would have no qualms about querying her.

    She's got two recent book sales over at Publisher's Marketplace. One is a non-fiction business title from October of last year:

    THE BOOYAH MONEY BREAKDOWN: Simple, Savvy Strategies to Making Money for Women, a guide to personal finance for young women

    And the other is a YA two-book deal just last month:

    Those are the only ones LISTED, but that doesn't mean much because not everybody lists books there, and often it's the author who does the reporting of the deal (I do, rather than our agent.) That doesn't mean they're the only ones, though, and since they were both nice deals and multi-book deals, I'd say she at least has enough contacts in the marketplace to justify sending a query.

    I just signed on with Matt Bialer today.

    And, I consider myself very fortunate about it.

    Thumbs up Courtney Miller-Callahan

    Just getting into this biz, so lots of questions. Ms. Miller-Callahan is at Sanford J. Greenburger and asked to see the full of my historical fiction novel. Agency has a huge rep, and I feel deeply honored even to submit, but curious whether anyone knows Courtney.

    Thanks for the help, and pages and prosperity to all.

    Faith Hamlin.....agent

    I thought I asked about her but I guess I didn't. I did some research and thought I would add her here. I am about to query her. She has a list of impressive clients but I have to give her a shot. Has anyone had any interaction with her?

    I sent a snail mail query a while back and received a request within a month from her assistant. Ultimately it was a rejection, but she gave me a pretty good critique. Overall it was a good experience.

    Thanks, Mark. Still no word from Courtney. We'll see. Perhaps Santa is on the way.

    Hang in there. With the holidays, the office may be closed. From what I remember, it wasn't more than 6 weeks between request and reply.

    Matt Bialer

    Hopefully this isn't the incorrect forum for this, but does Matt Bialer accept email queries? AgentQuery says no, but the SJGA site gives his email addy. I guess I could always go snail mail and cover my bets, but the lazy pecker in me suggests I ask you guys first.

    Per his SJGA page: "Please direct all queries to LRibar [at] sjga [dot] com." Sounds like he accepts email queries, just not directly.
