Forgot to mark this for both mss. 1/20, I've queried Taryn. After a two week nudge in May for Venom, I've closed it as NR on 5/31. Will requery her next year. 7/5, I've queried her for Chain Reaction and nudged her two weeks ago. I've heard back--she doesn't take unsolicited queries or have a three-month response time policy.

"Taryn Fagerness Forms Own Agency; Stops Taking Queries

According to her, the Taryn Fagerness Agency, LLC, will primarily work on "subsidiary rights on behalf of US literary agents (mainly foreign rights, but some audio and film too)." Now, my first question was: Will you continue to take queries? Her answer was No. She is not looking for new clients except for referrals from existing clients."

ARGENT - Now I'm confused. I would have sworn she was there a week ago! I just queried her. FYI - she's still listed on AQ.

Taryn does not appear on the website. Is she still working as an agent? Is she still with this agency?

Sounds like I should expect a September response.

Well, I got a response on 8/7/08. It was a no, but one of the nicest rejections I've ever had. It said that while she thought my material well-written, her agency wasn't right to represent my work. How very, very flattering - and really cool! I'm okay with even the postcard rejections some agencies send, but this was so much nicer in my opinion.

As a tip: this agency occasionally does fantasy, which is why I tried them. But fantasy does not appear to be their specialty.

To jsabrahams:

It was just under two months. Roughly 7 1/2 weeks.

Taryn Fagerness is still on the website, if that's any indication to go by. To AdamWhitlach - how long did it take the agency to respond to your query? I posted my query to them July 5, and would like to get a more current idea of about when I should expect an answer. Thanks.

Form rejection from the agency hand-signed with an "S". They pasted an address label over the return address on my SASE and put the EXACT same address on it that I'd had, but without Taryn's name. Is she still with the agency?
