Publishers Lunch this week reports they are splitting the agency. "The Thompson Literary Agency and Einstein Literary Management will each open for business in January 2015, with both agencies continuing to work with Sandy Hodgman at Hodgman Literary for foreign rights."

I submitted a query in December. Yesterday I got an email asking for my full manuscript. I sent it last night, and had a rejection by 2:30 today. Both the request and the rejection were "dear author" form letters. I'm wondering now if the request was a glitch in the system and they never meant to request my manuscript in the first place. This happen to anyone else?

Patrick: From Publisher's Lunch--The successors to Larry Kirshbaum's former agency LJK Literary Management have formally launched their new entity, Einstein Thompson Agency. Susanna Einstein and Meg Thompson are co-directors of the new agency. They will take over representation of Kirshbaum's clients, including Elizabeth Flock, Dorothea Benton Frank, Anita Hill, Steven James, James Kimmel, Kimberly Pauley, Austin Ratner, James Redfield, Jeremy Rifkin, Larkin Warren, and the estate of Donald E. Westlake.

Sandy Hodgman has been promoted to director of foreign rights under the new banner, and Molly Reese has been promoted to associate agent. She will continue to assist Einstein and Thompson, oversee audio rights, work with the Westlake estate, and help find new clients. The agency will relocate from the LJK offices to new space October 1.
