Hi Patrick,

You may have already heard, Jason Pinter is no longer an agent with Waxman (see Publishers Marketplace March 10) and Jason's twitter.

ahhhhh hahah fair enough! yea...that makes him and naomi hackenberg...that has to really stink if you sign with an agent and potentially pass up another one for someone who leaves! I can't imagine that you can go back to the people you turned down lol

NO, she didn't leave. She's busy repping her clients (according to some of them on AW). I'm just comparing the reaction between two new agents who both said they'd respond to everybody.

Where are the screams of outrage of all the hundreds if not thousands of rejections he never sent and nudges he never responded to, after promising to respond to every query? (Oh, over at Denise Little's thread!)

Sorry, couldn't resist. Well, clearly I coulda, but didn't.

He tweeted it, too:!/jasonpinter/status/46260647364800513:

"Since it was mentioned on Pub Lunch, I have left agenting for now to concentrate more on writing and to deal with some personal stuff. "

Hmm. He is listed as an agent at the Boston Muse and Marketplace conference this coming May. You can sign up to meet with him. It says on the bio he is with Waxman.

Wow, they must have removed him from the site very recently. I was looking at the website just last week, trying to decide if I still wanted to query him.

Hmm, well I definitely don't see him on the Waxman Lit website.:(

Some unfortunate news: I just heard from a friend who signed with Jason a few months ago that he has made the decision to get out of agenting. I have not seen this confirmed anywhere publicly, though.

Having met Jason at a writer's conference early last year, before he was an agent, I queried him as soon as I heard he had become one, mentioning where we'd met. I got zero response. I queried him a second time when I heard he was actively seeking clients. Again I heard nothing.

In my writing groups, several people queried him. One got a request for a partial and never heard back, even after a follow up email. None of the others heard a thing.

I don't know where this guy's getting his clients, if he even has any, but for someone who said he would answer every query, he's not very professional.

on August 4, he requested a full from me. didn't hear anything back. In early December I sent a polite email asking if he actually received the manuscript. No response. As of today, I have still had no response.
