Queried memoir 11/17 through a client of Laurie's. Liked my writing. Topic is hard to sell and will take real dedication from an agent. She does not have the bandwidth. Encouraged. It's just a time issue. Lovely agent and person. 1/21/2018

Laurie was very nice with her response about my work.

Was referred to her in 2014 in a request to hook me up with an editor to get my manuscript ready. She responded, asked for more material, dropped the ball, responded to a nudge, requested the same material to give to an editor, no response after that. Got the impression she didn't want to impact her relationship with the person who referred me, but it was clear there wasn't sufficient interest.

Just a heads-up: I sent a snail query to Ms. Liss on 05/04/15 and this morning it was returned to me with a "Return to sender; unable to forward" sticker. She's still listed on the Sterling Lord Literistic website. Anyone know if she's in the process of switching agencies?
