"Anna Sproul-Latimer and Kent Wolf have joined to launch Neon Literary, with offices in New York and Washington, DC."

He has a new submission email in his twitter profile:, but no guidelines or instructions for people who recently queried him at Friedrich.

EQ 11/21/18 (2nd/final Requery Venom)--same day rejection (Passed--he doesn't consider requeries as new projects and asked to be removed from my query list. He'll be removed until I have something new and original to send him if I don't land an agent next year.)

Kent was my agent for a book he didn't manage to sell (despite having told me it was perfect and he'd be able to sell it, blah, blah, blah). By the time I had another book written, he had changed agencies twice. I told him I was ready for him to read the next book, and he declined. Just flat turned it down without bothering to read it. Don't use this guy. Zero results followed by zero loyalty.
