Please be aware:

My former agent worked at Fuse Literary. When she made the decision to leave agenting, Gordon and Laurie (the heads of the agency) informed her clients that the agency would not necessarily keep us on. We waited three weeks to hear back, with no communication about our work from the agency. Most of us were dropped with a copy-paste impersonal letter with no references. More information here:

I've interacted with Connor periodically on Twitter for a few years, I've queried him on two other projects, and he gave me permission to query him with this manuscript. I think he'd be a great fit as an agent. Hope he finds the query/pages compelling!
Heh, well, that was fast at least! Not quite the right fit for him. Contemporary / Urban Fantasy's a tough genre right now and he doesn't think he has the vision to blow this one out. Oh well. Hopefully I can find an agent who thinks they can do something with it.

Thanks Patrick! Thant explains the rejection I got within a few hours of querying today!

Catsamoa79, He is only taking fiction if it is by referral.

Per his tweets last night, he's only open to queries from from people who queried his old inbox and never heard back or from him OR referrals and solicitations. So none of the people who have been waiting months for him to re-open so they could query him qualify.
