Siyahi Literary Agency: Agent Mita Kapur

http://siyahi.in/

She's from India. I've seen her info on the Publisher's Marketplace. She's got a $ sign, which is good. A lot of her stuff is from Penguin India, and Harper Collins India and a few other impressive publishers.

Any info on this agency?

Well I queried her (with the first 3 chaps) in July and she responded right away saying it will take up to 10 weeks, I think? And she got back to me this week (within 6 weeks) with a short and to the point email requesting the full. YAY.

I've checked out some of her books, and I'm really impressed. I know she's a foreign agent, which I am a little unsure about, but I saw her wide range of selected authors (including U.S. authors) and again, I know I keep saying it, but I was really impressed all around.

Has anyone queried her? Is a client of hers? Or knows someone that is?

Hi Undercover,

I'd like to know how did this go as I am querying the same agent. Would truly appreciate your feedback and suggestions on this. :)

TIA,

Best regards

I nudged her after 3 months and got a rejection.

It was just a form, but at least she replied.
