Hi Lady MacBeth!
I know Courtney and in a few months, should be interning with her. What would you like to know? I've known Courtney since 2013 when I had her come out to a writers' conference. She used to agent for the Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. A lot of her clients from there when with her and while she's actively looking, she's also selective because she has a lot of authors she's passionate about. I got to spend five days with her at a writers' retreat and we talked at length about the industry, etc. She definitely knows her stuff. Let me know what you'd like to know specifically and I'll see if I can assist.
Hope it's okay to interject and ask if you know whether she reps upper YA? I read the guidelines and see only Adult and Children, but sometimes agents class YA in one of those categories. No probs if you don't know.
Thanks for the background information. I was just curious about personal experiences with her. I did the usual research and she has a great reputation.
She requested a full and my fingers are crossed.
I had already sent a query for my polo mystery in March, and received a form R shortly afterward.
The website asks for 50 pages but doesn't specify how. Is it safe to assume a .doc attachment can be included? Hard to imagine pasting 50 pages in a single email.
