Will Roberts is my agent and I can tell you - he is fantastic, both in an editorial capacity and in a business capacity as well. Nothing but good things!

Aaron, at least you've heard back from Will. I've gotten crickets for both mss. On 2/17/16, I've requeried Will Roberts with Venom and nudged him two weeks ago. Now I'm closing him out as CNR and will try Anna with Venom this summer.

10/7/15, I've queried Will with Chain Reaction. After a two week nudge, it's a CNR. I'll try him with Venom next year.

Quick response with a form letter as described by others:

Thanks so much for sending us your query which we've now had a chance to review.

Though what you've written promises to be a thoughtful and compelling book,
I'm afraid we were unable to find a place for it at this agency.

Do know that we're glad you considered us, and that we wish you the best of
luck in placing your work elsewhere.

Best Wishes,

The Gernert Company
