Dude passed literally four minutes after I sent my query. When my email chimed I thought it was an auto-reply!

Still better than a "no reply equals no." :-)

STRONG CAUTION: I was represented by Wolf for two years. When his former agency, Global Literary Management, folded, he didn't even inform me. When I contacted him at his new agency, he did not respond. In fact, no one did, so I assumed my contract did not transfer to the new agency. The entire thing was handled in the most unprofessional way, and I caution you greatly from doing business with him.

As for his work during those two years, he never sold my novel, made few attempts to engage with the material, offered minimal input regarding rewrites and development, and sent emails full of typos and grammatical errors. He was a huge disappointment.

Form. "Thank you for your query. I’ve read it and given it careful consideration, but I’m afraid I won’t be requesting further reading material..."

Putting a fork in this novel pretty soon. I think it is done.

Same day fast rejection on Chain Reaction's requery (7 minutes)--thanks, it's not for him. He wished me luck. I'll try him again this late spring with Venom's requery for a better response. same as Juddwell.

5/18/16--Same day fast requery on Venom--same response. I'll try Molly this summer with Venom.

I meant to say:

I submitted an MG query to him and he said he doesn't rep much MG and would like MG REMOVED from his list of genres.

Sent today and rejected today, saying it sounded interesting, but he does not represent romances. It is a YA historical romance.
