I'm considering querying this agency for my gay-themed young adult. J.M. - how did you come to query Edward Hibbert? He's listed on LitMatch and Querytracker as not accepting unsolicited queries. Maybe he hasn't updated his status? Also, LitMatch lists another agent Darren Web as interested in gay/lesbian fiction. I couldn't find any information about him. Any leads?
Thanks J.M.. Hibbert is a great score. Hope things work out for you. I'm going back and forth over who to query at D&O. It would be great to get Hibbert's interest based on his track record, but I'm sure he's highly selective in who he takes on and if I get turned down from him, I'll have to write off the agency for awhile. I could try the lesser known Darren Web, but I can't find any info. about him, not even people who've gotten responses. Any thoughts?
Well, just got a pithy form rejection letter to my query today. Bleck. Wasn't even signed by "Darren Web," just the agency. Guess my obsessing about this was totally unwarranted.
I am still waiting on a response. I'll probably close it out in about two weeks as a no-go (but I'll secretly keep my fingers crossed for another four five months, I'm sure!)
