So, I'm about to query an agent, and their guidelines say to send it to their assistant, followed by the assistant's name and email. Do I still address the query to the agent herself (ie "Dear Ms. (Agent)"), or to her assistant?

My gut says the agent, but I'm a bit paranoid about making a faux-paus here.

Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)

I'd address it to the agent. Sometimes, the assistant IS the one who takes on the projects, but you're still querying the agent.

Definately address it to the agent.
