    I queried him just before the move, and got a R, I think, the same day. His "send" finger is lightening quick!!

    Maybe they make a keyboard for agents that have a big red Reject button!

    I emailed a query to Hannah Gordon Brown at this agency yesterday - they look really good.

    Mollie Glick asked for an exclusive on a partial for a month. I gave it to her with the understanding I had already queried other agents. In one month -- to the day -- she passed. Disappointing, but I really appreciate her keeping her word.

    Eep! Congrats! I didn't know she requested your full too. I guess we'll be constantly refreshing our email box together, then. :P

    Red, she's had it since September, so, either I'm already rejected with no response, or they're just super busy! I hope I at least find out I was officially rejected!!

    I definitely will. I absolutely HATE the waiting game, though. I'm not a very patient person. :P

    I'll take that "Go RED!" Thank you. Just got a full request from Foundry on my old project...took 4 months to go from partial to full, wonder how long I'll be waiting after that.

    I sent off the full today and got a confirmation of receipt from Kendra Jenkins. I love it when agents do that.

    Mine went to Peter and Hannah, so maybe that's why. Who knows....

    Stephen Barbara was at the SCBWI Golden Gate Conference at Asilomar this weekend. I didn't get to speak with him personally, but he gave a presentation that was quite funny. If you specialize in over-the-top humor, I think he would be a good fit!

    He mentioned that he is now THE agent for children's books at Foundry. He shared some of his recent books with us, and one common thread is that he likes High Concept books, books where the premise is big and bold. He knows other agents like quiet books, and he said he does read them...sometimes... But in general, he prefers a big story, I think.
    represented by Jenny Bent of the Bent Agency. Most happy.

    Hi there- I am an Australian writer who just found this site (and particularly this thread) when I was Googling Foundry and Stephanie Abou... my first novel came out here in Australia two months ago, and my Australian agent convinced Stepahnie at Foundry to take me on. I just wanted to say that she sent my book (commercial fiction) out within three weeks of contact and had an offer for it from what I think is a good US publisher (more Googling!) two weeks later. I haven't dealt with her directly- that's my Oz agent's role at this stage- but in all the cc-ed correspondence I've seen she is bright, kind, enthusiastic and *very* switched on. I was Googling her to get a feel for the agency- a bit belatedly now all this has happened- but so far my dealings with it have been 100% positive.

    Good luck to all! It took me 10 years of writing and 2 previous unpublished novels to write one that was finally published... and it's all been more than worthwhile.
