shouldnt adam be added into the ya jumble?
from website: Adam Korn joined DeFiore and Company in the fall of 2009. He became an agent after several years working in the editorial departments of the Random House and Crown Publishing Groups and HarperCollins Publishers, during which time he acquired New York Times bestselling titles GO LONG! by Jerry Rice, GOT FIGHT? by Forrest Griffin, and—in a three-book Y.A. deal with Lauren Conrad—L.A. CANDY (which stayed at #1 for several weeks).

Queried Adam Korn 9/11/10 for action/suspense. Got response 2 days later and have been in email conversation since. Adam wants to read the manuscript but is waiting for confirmation regarding licensing that is required to publish my book. He is very quick to respond to his emails.

Adam Korn responded to my query by asking for the full manuscript. Three months passed. I hadn't heard from him, so I sent a polite email to inquire. He wrote that he hadn't read the manuscript yet but that he "promised" to get back to me soon.

That was four months ago. It's been seven months since I sent the manuscript. I haven't heard from him again and expect that I won't.
