Never heard back from Bresnick.

In July 2013, Paul assumed control over Wendy Weil's agency after her demise. Paul Bresnick is now trading as Bresnick Weil Literary Agency. Still at http://bresnickagency.com/

I wish my book had already been published, but I also received a form rejection today from a query sent in March of 2012. I have an agent who's currently subbing my manuscript.
(Ridiculous--agencies, don't even bother wasting your time with rejections more than a year old.)

Received a form rejection over a year after query letter sent, and my book has already been published. Why do they bother? I sent the query in March of 2012.
