Barry Goldblatt represents tons of big names. Libba Bray, Holly Black, Lauren Myracle, formerly Cassandra Clare, etc. However, because he's got such a large stable of established authors already, he's very picky. He barely requests anything and offers rep maybe once or twice a year, from what I've seen.

Thanks, I guess I'll put him on my 'query in retaliation for rejection' list as opposed to my 'hope and pray' list.

Had a full with Joe Monti. Nudged after offer of pub & offer of rep but never heard a word.

My query got lost the first time I sent it to BG. I ended up nudging on the query a few months later and got a very kind response (and a full request). If you didn't get rejected immediately it could be a good thing. :)

I hope so. I nudged after a month, b/c his site says 4 weeks. Nothing. I'll give it another month or so and and then try from another email address.

Has anyone here had any experience with Jennifer Udden at this agency? Thinking about adding her to my query list, but QueryTracker isn't telling me much as far as personal experiences go.

Poking this with a stick. I'm going through my list, and I realize that I didn't get an autoresponse from Udden. Anyone have anything to share here?

Querytracker just put up a notice that Jennifer Udden is no longer listed with Barry Goldblatt. I see no mention of this on Twitter or her website.

Gliese, obviously
She's definitely no longer listed on the BG web site. But there's no announcement from her about what's going on, either. Pretty strange.

*headdesk* This is like the fourth agent I've queried who almost immediately leaves their agency (whatever agency, not just this one). It's giving me a complex.

A couple other agents on my initial list were active when I started querying 14 months ago and have left agenting altogether since.

It changes how you see the whole process. When people say no agent is better than a bad agent, they're onto something.
