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!

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".

I suspect the same of Diana. I felt special having her full request. But now it's like...why did she bother?

dpasquantonio, TPC222 I just feel like it's rough all around for us hopeful authors. I was so excited when she requested my full, I had about eight FRs in all. But I did my research and I think a lot of her FRs are kind of like bookmarks, things she'd like to take a closer look at if she has time. I'm not saying it didn't hurt but I sent out more than 100 queries in all and CNRed more than half of them. Diana's request at least made me feel I was doing something right. I'm channeling that energy into self-pubbing this one... holding my novel in my hand and it's beautiful and I love it!

So AmericanTypo...did you ever hear from Diana?

Sunshinestate, I agree with TPC222's "appalling" comment. Given what I've heard agents say in person, there's really no reason for her to not reply to a requested full within six months, unless she's had a medical emergency or something. And given that you aren't the only one who's waited half a year or more to hear back from her about something that she requested, I'd advise others to steer clear -- there are plenty of agents out there who will put forth a minimum amount of effort on full requests.

Six months no response is pretty appalling, sunshine state.

EQ 2/25
FR 3/10 (submitted 3/11)
6/1 nudge
9/8 CNR I decided to self-pub, would still like to find rep for my other books but at the moment I'm pretty thrilled with my decision. I'm not mad at Diana or anyone else since I know they're all swamped. I guess I just got tired of waiting for someone to say grace over my work -- I was getting positive feedback from enough agents but no offers of rep.
