    I don't know about Maya, but has anyone heard back from Ms. Heifetz recently? I queried two months ago and have heard nada.

    a) Your avatar is deeply alarming.
    2) I got a polite form R from Ms Heifetz's assistant less than a week after I queried. Maybe try again?

    For Maya, I would assume that if you queried her, you're free to query another WH agent. That's just my assumption. I know she worked with her clients to try to find them homes.

    I queried Ms. Heifetz via email to her assistant on 2/16 and got a request for a partial on 2/18. Maybe yours didn't get through? Does she reply to all?

    Wish I could offer more help.

    That's interesting. I thought she only took snail mail. I wonder if I should query again but through e-mail?

    AuntB, what email did you use?

    I e-queried using the same email as bclement. She was on my list to snail mail query, but my work schedule is atrocious and isn't really compatible with post office hours, so it never really happened. When I saw Cathy's post, I jumped on the opportunity to e-query.

    Thanks bclement!

    Queried Steven Malk one week ago and got 2hr reponse for full. Looks like he takes two weeks to read MS, so I've got more waiting to do. Sounds like a great agent though.
    I wonder if he or his assistant reads the MS he requests...anybody know?

    Did you send just the one page query? Or did you add a syn or pages? I can't seem to find what all they want sent.

    And, of course, good luck Dev!

    Uh, yeah. Your avatar makes me LOL and my stomach curl at the same time. If that's what your cat looks like then I fear for your ankles.

    For anyone who's sent by snail mail -

    Should I specify it's for her on the envelope (ex, C/O Jodi Reamer), or should I just use the standard submission address and leave personalization for the letter?

    I queried Mr. Lazar a few days ago and he responded in one hour with a request for the full. He even sent an email confirming receipt of the manuscript. What a wonderful guy! I would love to have him as my agent.

    I always put "Attn: Ms. Agent" on a snail mail which ensures it reaches the agent I'm looking to query.

    Put the agent's name on the envelope, either c/o or Attn: agent name
