One of their agents, Monica Pacheco, is currently reading my full. As far as I can, tell she's fairly new and very friendly - she even posted here on AW a few times - so I'm excited. Trying to stay realistic, though. ;)

For the record, she was very fast - I e-mailed her at her personal address, and she responded within two days. (She also misspelled my name, but, er, that's nothing new by now. *g*)

So, does anyone have any experience with them? Agents include Anne McDermid, Martha Magor, Monica Pacheco and Chris Bucci.

Queried Anne McDermid back in January since she was a Canadian agent. Never got a response.

Congratulations on the full!! I don't have any experience with the agency, but the agent reading your full seems pretty good! Good luck!

yes, they used to be my agents. Not anymore. Nothing personal about Anne, she's very distinguished, but my opinion is she handles their A-list clients only. Everyone new is repped by the other guys. Oh well.

Anne is my agent, and I have not a bad thing to say about her, or about anyone else in the agency.

Thanks for the info, guys, it's useful :)

I appreciate the good luck wishes as well. We'll see where things lead.

If you don't mind me asking, How did it turn out?

Curious about this, but I doubt I'll get an answer after ressurecting this thread lol.

Per her sig, she's currently repped by Veritas Literary, so I expect it didn't work out.

Sorry, I was out of the country when you posted that (Clarion West, baby!) so I didn't see it sooner. Monica sent me a kind, personalized rejection about a month after I sent the full.

Does anyone have any recent response times for Monica?

I'm now repped by Chris Bucci of the McDermid Agency. My genre is upmarket Southern noir.
