On 11/6/15, I've requeried Gary with Venom. After a two week nudge this month, I've closed it out as CNR. I'll try next month with Chain Reaction.

5/11/16--On 2.19.16, I've queried him with Chain Reaction. After a two week nudge, it's CNR.

Yeah CJ1523. I don't believe she's listed here. My mail to David Black came back as RTS and my queries to Gary came back as NR. Checked her out at the website, will query her soon.

3/26/12--I'll be querying Antonella today. Same day rejection--heard from Madeline Metzger. They believe they're not the best agency to rep my work. Oh well.

I queried Antonella Iannarino at The David Black agency last night...got a request for a partial today for my mystery/suspense. Fingers crossed!

5/24, I've requeried him. Two weeks ago, I nudged him. Status the same: no response.

9/6/11, I requeried him for Chain Reaction. Two weeks ago, I nudged him. Still no response. I'll try David Black later this year.
