I just queried them recently and received a nice message from Jewelann explaining that their agency has closed.

"...while you have a nice writing voice, you are inclined to tell versus show. For every apartment, for example, you listed the furniture, listed the layout of the kitchen, the bedroom etc. For instance, a character didn’t walk into the bedroom and straighten the black comforter, instead you told us there was a black comforter on the bed."

Jewelann requested a full for my manuscript back in May, but I have not sent it yet because I am in the middle of a rewrite. 80k words is just a ballpark word count. My manuscript was only 70k at the time she requested it.

I only include the synopsis portion of my query, because I have no background worth bragging about . . . yet. And, as far as the comparison goes, I only do that when I'm doing one of those Online Queries, where they'll specifically ask you. Other than that, I just stick with the synopsis portion. Not to say it's the right way. Maybe you should have a look in the Socialize/QT Forum section of Query Tracker. I'm sure something there will give you an idea :-) Good Luck!

Those of you with full requests, did you stick to the two paragraph query? Did y'all only include the synopsis portion of a query without a bio or comparison to other books in your market, etc.? I guess I'm trying to say that I'm having a real difficult time whittling my query to only two paragraphs.

Form Q - 3/13

I think I'm going to close this out. According to her stats, it seems like if she was interested, she'd have responded by now.

Closed out - 4/15

Got a formal rejection - 5/17 - good to have that closure!

If you're looking for a career in writing, by all means pursue an agent. You have a contract for one book, but there's still a lot that can happen between now and the pub date that an agent would be invaluable for. Plus, a good agent will work with you on the next project while there is no commitment from the publisher to ever work with you again. Having an offer from a publisher might very well help you land an agent, but if you haven't signed a contract, they may have some ideas of other publishing houses that would have more to offer you.

This happened with a friend of mine. She had an offer from a publishing house, let an agent who was reading her proposal. The agent ended up signing her and was able to negotiate a contract with a MAJOR pub house and now they are looking at her book (non-fiction) as a franchise. Without an agent, she might have had success, but not like the possibility she has now.

It's an agents job to know the trends, both current and upcoming, and to look out for the long term health of your career.

My two thoughts... or like 8 jumbled together. ;)
