UPDATE 4/2019 - After nearly a month of her not responding to emails, calls and texts requesting information on submission, I terminated our client agreement. I had to contact editors she said she had submitted to 9 months prior. I heard back from 1/2 within 24 hours saying she DID NOT SUBMIT the manuscript to them. She already has a documented ethics violation with RWA. Currently, AAR has a lawyer involved regarding my complaint.

FR 7/14 + asked for other completed MS

Read two MS in 6 days. Called me. Met at conference. She offered representation and I accepted. Went on submission but didn't sell that MS to top houses for a print deal. When my second manuscript did not get offers for a print deal, she failed to communicate passes in a timely manner or provide details even when asked. Yet, she insisted she believed in my work and thought we could get a deal - then never submitted the manuscript.

According to Publishers Marketplace, she’s had 17 deals in the past 12 months, but no activity from QT users. I wonder if this agency has a full client roster and/or doesn’t take new clients.

She has a Twitter Account - @HelenBreit I just tweeted her asking if she's a real person explaining that snail mail to her gets returned and that there's never been a response from her on online queries on QT.

I too had my USPS query returned today. It was marked 'forward time expired.' I mailed it 7 Feb 2018. Checkin her reports, I see no positive replies for he past year. I wonder if they are gone with the Santa Ana Winds? ????

Thanks Cisroe_P2. I'm going to mark them as email only until a new address can be found.
