Yep, I'm posting yet another thread about yet another agency. Anyway, does anyone know anything about the Fielding Agency, president Whitney Lee? Their website is http://fieldingagency.com/contact.html and P and E gives them a $ sign. I couldn't find a listing on AgentQuery, but I may just be stupid today.

Looks like she's kept good company under her creditials. Not an expert though maybe someone will come along soon and help. Also look up some of the books they had published!

Has anybody heard anything from Ms. Lee lately? On Query Tracker and Lit Match, she's got a stack of queries, but no recorded replies.

Thanks.

Nope, but she's selling steadily, so she's replying to somebody. :e2cry:

She also handles foreign/sub-rights for other agencies, which I expect means fewer direct-query clients.

I queried them in January of 2007, with two e-mail followups in October of 2007 and February 2009. I never heard back, so I guess that was it.

I just sent a query. Their website seemed a bit rudimentary, and there are no dates to indicate how current the info is. There is a list of sales, some to Simon & Schuster and McGraw-Hill, and what I am assuming are small presses as well. Several anthologies, children's, and YA books. Her foreign sales list is easily triple the length of the domestic, but of course the list might not be exhaustive. No dates on any of these.

Does anyone know if Whitney Lee is still actively selling and accepting new clients? The website tells me nothing really.

I looked this up today because she represents an author (Sue Ann Jaffarian) who writes in my genre. The Publishers Marketplace page (from post #6) for her hasn't been updated in a long time, I think. It says recent sales are for:

MOTHER MAYHEM by Sue Ann Jaffarian (can't find a pub date for this one, her most recent from 2012 thanks Whitney Lee for being her agent)
EVERY CROOKED POT by Renee Rosen (pub date 2007)
HE JUST THINKS HE'S NOT THAT INTO YOU by Danielle Whitman (2007)
FACADE FOR A PENNY ARCADE by James Reiss (can't find a pub date)
THE CROWS OF PEARBLOSSOM by Aldous Huxley (a reprint, pub 2011)
THE HAPPINESS OF KATI by Jane Vejjajiva (2006)
THE BUTTER MAN by Elizabeth Letts and Ali Alalou (2008)

How often do these PM pages get updated? Not useful if so out of date.

ETA: Found this thread here which explains why PM isn't updated: http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=7354673&postcount=3

But still no submission info on the agency website, so maybe closed to new clients.

The Fielding Agency website states she is accepting queries, so I queried on May 21. Hoping to hear back.

Site's gone, and sales info's been removed from PM page ... the last was in '15, near as I can tell. Anyone have recent contact?

ETA: still listed as rights agent for lots of places, so I won't write her off quite yet.
