The lady indicates she prefers hardcopy queries. Who am I to question the thoughts of an agent? Give her what she wants.

pickfordm,

Well, writers are the livelihood of agents, so that power thing goes both ways.

Thanks for sharing your experience, Grayson. I guess I'll follow up soon, when it hits 22 months for me give or take. That happened to the friend of a friend with her, also. It is a difficult balancing act, and you have a lot of compassion and understanding for the agents who have so much power over us. It's easy to be less charitable.

Galen_Marek, pickfordm,

She had my original MS for 22 months (on paper). On her advice, I sent it second time, again on paper (a revision). Presently, she's had the revision for 8 months. I sent her an email this Spring asking if she'd ever received it. I did this more as an opportunity for her to put me out of my misery than anything else, but she never responded. Agenting must be a difficult balancing act.
