    Anyone knows if they accept simultaneous submissions? Can't find the answer anywhere on their website.

    Most agencies do, if you mean simultaneous queries. It's sort of expected in the industry, that you will query multiple agencies at once. The few who want an exclusive on a query or partial will tell you up front in their guidelines.

    Anyone heard anything new about Jennie?

    standard procedure (not to be broken) in any agency is to look at only one work at a time.

    if they want more, they'll ask.

    No agents seem to want that. Every agent I've ever read or heard discussing it is very firm about saying "Query one project at a time."

    Hi all,

    I signed with Jennie this past week, and I just wanted to echo Marquita's sentiments... Jennie has been a pleasure to deal with. I feel like I'm in very capable hands, and I'm so excited to be her client!

    And very best of luck to you, Marquita! I'm rooting for you.

    I got a very nice rejection from her on Boxing Day. It took a few weeks

    I'd query her again if I still find myself looking.

    Oh boy I queried Jennie tonight! I really hope she's interested. One thing that give me hope is on her twitter page it says "ask me about my zombie romance novel" and my YA novel I'm querying is a paranormal romance centered around zombies!!!

    Anyone having trouble emailing Jennie through her agency address? I'd rather not go through WEBooks to query, but my emails keep bouncing back.

    Filigree, I queried her back on January 25 at jennie@redsofaliterary.com and didn't seem to have any problems. She hasn't responded yet, and I get the feeling on QueryTracker that she's a bit backed up. Could it be that her inbox is too full to take new e-mails?

    I just queried her this morning, and didn't have any problems with sending the email.
