Ms. Grosjean is what is known as a "schmagent." She doesn't use contracts, and she doesn't revise or advise. She "represented" my last novel for a year, just sat on it, and I finally decided to seek other representation. She sent me a verbally abusive email when I let her go. I wouldn't normally trash someone like this, but she is not a real agent. She will talk to you for two hours about her dogs and her doctor husband and her sightings of Billy Joel near her house in Long Island. She seems to enjoy being an agent, but not in doing any work. She even had ME print her the MS and FedEx it to her. Twice--she "never received" the first one. Should've known right then she was wasting my time. A very unpleasant narcissist. Avoid.

Terrie, that word count is too high for a mystery.

FR: 5/9/18 (I originally nudged her three months ago,but she told me she was in a car crash with her husband. But when I nudged her yesterday, she said if I like, I could send her additional material and she would get back to it as soon as she can.) :-)
Full sent on 9/19/18 via email.

Congrats Florida! I didn't get an exclusive full request via snail mail.)

Update: ER 12/3/18 (Passed--not best agent to represent it)

FloridaGal007, Jill just sold a book in a similar vein to mine so I was researching her and see she wants MSs printed out and sent. While I know there are a few old schoolers who do this, I think I'll pass as well. Makes me wonder how much she's kept up with the times. She also has no website.

*update 7/16 - I opted not to send her my MS, despite her requesting it. I don't want to pay for printing & shipping, nor am I particularly keen on working with an agent who would request an exclusive read of a paper copy anyway. A tough call for me, but I'm going with my gut and not pursuing this one.

2/21 EQ
3/9 FR - "Your novel sounds intriguing. I work alone, therefore I read on an exclusive basis (two weeks) so if no other agent is currently reading your manuscript, please forward it along, with a SASE should you wish it returned, to my POB..."

Obviously thrilled with the request, however, another agent does have my full so I can't send anything to Jill right now. Also, sort of annoyed that I need to print my MS (this isn't cheap) and mail it. I feel like that's a dead industry trend...?

After 10 months - I nudged and she passed. I don't know if she ever read the ms.
