Emailed him directly since his Publishers Marketplace page said that's okay. Agency sub guidelines are to paste "a short writing sample (1-2 chapters)." My book is written in diary form, with most entries being just a page or two, so I sent the first 14 pages. Hopefully, that's not too much.

His Publisher's Marketplace says to submit to him directly. Anyone try that?
