Oh I queried him last month to, and haven't heard anything -- perhaps I should try again to the email address listed here (

Thanks, Patrick, the one here is the one I used--I guess I wasn't sure, so thanks for the vote of confidence.

murrbrewster, Have you tried the address listed here? There have been replies logged in QT, which leads me to beleive this address is getting through.

Does anyone know for sure what Mr. Mandel's email address is? I've seen three different ones and two are apparently invalid. If I don't get a response with the third I'd like to know if he got it or if the address was wrong.

PSbookish, that's too small to be a thriller unless it's a novella. Not many agents will accept novellas. Thrillers should be 60,00-110,000.
