Online Form: No

Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.

Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).

Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.

And NEVER give money to an "agent".

Query Guidelines

I ask that authors email me queries and cut and paste the first 5 pages of their manuscript IN THE BODY OF THE EMAIL with every query (both fiction and nonfiction). If you do choose to send me a hard copy submission, you must include your email address in your letter as I will respond to queries exclusively via email from now on. Also, please be aware that I now have a "no response means no" policy for hard copy queries ONLY, so please do NOT include a SASE. As of now, I do still reply to all email queries. Finally, please do not send unsolicited email attachments or manuscripts, as I cannot open the former or return the latter. I reserve the right to delete any email containing unsolicited attachments unread. Thank you, and I look forward to reading your submission!

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

Powens157,
Agents don't always work linearly, so they may be jumping around. Some gaps may also be due to members not recording their results with QueryTracker.

I'm new at this. Why is it that some queries remain open when others sent in at a later date have responses -- both accepted and rejected? It seems like most timelines show these gaps.

Still no word from Fox. I assume I won't hear until I have to nudge her with an offer from someone else (which could be never!)

Update: she passed with a form. Took three months.

Vanessa...Marini isn't at ICM. She was at an affiliate. In any event she's somewhere else now.

Author Claire Legrand was represented by her and now she's with Marini at ICM Partners but after reading this thread I'm starting to wonder why

So, "fox on blast" is probably confusing to people cause the comment I posted before was never posted, probably because I swore in the comment, I don't know. Long story short- I was also excited to have a full manuscript request, was summarily ignored, and when I followed up about restructuring the novel received even more silence, vs the other agents who actually said they were excited to see me restructure the book. So, idk, Fox's behavior is really frustrating. Unless there's some kind of health issue, I just don't see how its okay to not respond after a manuscript was sent. And I think it just sets a really bad tone overall if she did sign someone. Can her clients even get a hold of her when they need her? I don't think I'll be sending her anymore work after being ignored like this, it's not the kind of partnership I'm interested in. And Im not even being that needy!

In comparison, two other agents who were considering the material, they responded to my new plan with alot of enthusiasm, saying they'd love to see the project restructured this way. One even said that my willingness to make the first book stand one at like 90k, was "music to her ears".
