    Jenny Meyer Literary Agency

    Specifically Aaron Rich. I see that the Agency handles a lot of foreign rights, but I'm looking for an agency that will sell to domestic U.S. publishers. Do they? I try to peirce the veil to seek the truth, but my Google powers are weak.

    I also find Aaron Rich's name here and there, but not who his clients are or what books he's sold. Does anyone have more complete information?
    Look for CHILD OF FIRE from Del Rey! Read a sample chapter. Hey! it's been named to Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2009 list!

    Book 2 in the Twenty Palaces series: GAME OF CAGES. or check out these sample chapters.

    Looked him up on Agent Query, and here are all the particulars.

    He's building a client list, which is probably why you don't see any clients or books sold. He formerly was an intern at Sanford J. Greenburger (totally legit, BTW).

    So he has the background...

    I found his name on agentquery.com, but I'd like to have more info about the agency. I don't like to query people if I haven't already decided I'd like to work with them.

    My major concern was that I'd found references to foreign sales but not domestic. After trying a new google search, I found one note that mentions sales to U.S. publishers. It's amazing what adding the word "sold" to a search string will get you.

    But that answers my question.

    I noticed Jenny Meyer handles foreign rights for a lot of other agencies, but it's always "except Asia." Just curious if anyone knows why she doesn't sell to Asia!

    Aaron's AQ page is gone. The agency itself has recent sales (all credited to Jenny).

    She handles foreign rights for several agencies. She's her own entity, though.
