@zbedee Thanks for the feedback. I hate people/companies that operate like that. Chances are their 'master class' is just stuff you can find on the internet. Almost makes me wish I hadn't queried them.

@Mesmer7 I subscribed to the Newsletter. I think there are a few good ones in there, but a vast majority of the emails have been "Join this querying MasterClass if you ever want to be successful!" and the class is exorbitantly priced, so in the end, that gave me a pretty negative view of the agency, despite thinking their blog has some worthwhile things to say.

FYI for all interested: I have just learned that Lucinda has left Fletcher and Co. to start her own shop, Lucinda Blumenfeld Literary Consulting. She is getting it up and running soon!

1/05/11 - Email Query - YA Science Fiction
1/06/11 - Rejection

I greatly appreciate having been given the opportunity to review your work. Regrettably, I feel we are unable to offer you representation.

Sometimes we must pass on books, even very good books, which are either out of our range or require an amount of attention we feel unable to provide. In addition, we cannot afford to take on projects which we're not absolutely confident we will be able to sell. But we do very much hope that you will find an agent with the right enthusiasm for your work.

Because our staff is small, and the volume of submissions we receive so high, we cannot issue a personal response to every query or submission. But please know that each is reviewed with great attention and care.
