Sadly Donsh18a - it feels better to not be alone. LOL. I guess on the positive side, if we get representation elsewhere, we can always tell them that Joe was interested since he's heading up the new imprint now.

I also had a full out with him. Guess it fell by the wayside.

Hmm. I have a full out with Joe since 09/25 that he requested at a conference. Lost cause? Anyone else have a full or partial with him?

Seilann, No, he reps Stina Leicht, author of Of Blood and Honey, which is *not* YA.

Hi, I was wondering if Mr. Monti represents *only* YA? His bio on the agency website seems to imply such.

So, any advice on querying him considering that I've queried him multiple times in the past and never gotten a reply?
