Same thing happened to me @karareynolds. Is it just me or are agents/agencies getting worse and worse regarding queries? I can send 100 out and 80% of them never even get read.

I queried Josh Adams on 12/6/16, and today received a form R from Lorin Oberweger.
Does that kind of situation bug anyone else? I don't mind an agent passing my work along to another agent, but unless they want to read pages I don't need to hear from someone I didn't query. Just me?

closed to queries for over a year...think this one is simply closed

From their website which has been updated this year:

Adams Literary is exclusively dedicated to representing the finest children’s book authors and artists. While we have an established client list, we do seek new talent—and we accept submissions from both published and aspiring authors and artists. Please carefully review our guidelines before submitting.

Due to a high influx of submissions, we are closed to new queries at this time. All submissions already received will be considered.

Their website mentions strictly children lit, no adult.
86 days, no response, closing this one out.

Does anyone know if this agency represents adult? The website states they represent all ages and genres, but elsewhere and almost every interview they mention just children's/YA.
