Please know I can only responsibly take on a few new clients each year, and my decision to pass does not mean another agent won’t be a passionate and energetic advocate for your project.

I wasn't clear if the first 25 pages were to be sent as an attachment or pasted into the email. If the agent doesn't specify, what is the correct default? Thanks, I'm new at this!

Hi IonaBaird123,
I think you're looking at the wrong Publisher's Marketplace page. Adriann's page also says to use adriann@foliolit.com. I think you're looking at Katherine Odom-Tomchin's page.

Which email is hers? Querytracker is saying adriann@foliolit.com but publisher's marketplace is saying ktomchin@foliolitmanagement.com

Publisher's marketplace also says: "PLEASE NOTE: I will not accept queries sent via any other method or to any other email address. Thanks in advance for your attention to these requirements." ???

Does anyone know if Ms. Zurhellen accepts work from picture book authors only (not author/illus)? The blurb on her website is a bit vague:

"I love picture books and graphic novels with author/illustrators;"
