There is a closed thread on this agency, but there seems to be a discussion about another agency in the replies. :Huh:

http://www.threeseaslit.com/contactus.html

Michelle Grajkowski
Cori Deyoe

On P&E - Dollar sign only next to Grajkowski

Anyone had any experience with them?


I have known a number of people who've worked with Michelle. Like any other agent, some people are a better fit with her than others.

But she's completely legit. :)

I sent her a snail mail query package in July and didn't receive a rejection until late December.

I once sent a query letter, the first three chapters, a full synopsis and a SASE (as stated on her website) and it took take about 8+ months to get form rejection. Though their website does state "Please be patient as we are reading as fast as we can."

I agree with Susan-- totally legit.

Turnaround times - ugh

Thanks for the info. I had been holding off querying them because they are in Wisconsin. I know the NY rule doesn't always apply and they seemed to have a good sales record. I just wanted to check in. Too bad about the turnaround times. But they are a good match for me, so I'll give it a go.

Ms Grajkowski's AQ profile page doesn't reflect this change yet, so I thought I'd share:

Any ideas on response times for e-queries? I sent a query letter and 1st chapter via email on 6-10-08 and still haven't heard anything. I'm assuming it's a no response reject.

I just sent one on September 5th but it may be a while before I hear anything (if I hear anything! Here's hoping ;)).

Congrats!

Thanks! You folks are all so nice and so supportive!

It dawned on me I didn't name my agent. Oopsie. If you want to talk about her, we'll have to switch to the Curtis Brown thread. Maureen Walters in my agent now, and I couldn't be more pleased. :D

I queried Michelle on 8/31, so I guess I have a ways to wait!

Congrats, Shameless! Way to go!

Thanks, Erin! :D

Good luck with Michelle! I loved her presentation with Anna DeStefano (sp?) at nationals. She also represents a friend of mine, and she has great rapport with her clients.

Congratulations! I missed your original post, so I'm off a few days, but I bet you are still a few feet off the ground!

Shameless, heartfelt congratulations.

For those who are waiting for a response from Michelle G specifically, she was out of town at ACFW's national conference most of last week. She gave a good recap of what they're looking for, I'm told--I was on volunteer duty at the time.
