EQ 11/10 with 1st chap pasted in, literary fiction
FR 11/11
OFFER 11/14 (talked on phone 11/15, asked for a couple weeks to decide, as I had numerous fulls out and wanted to give people a chance to finish reading. )
Rejected offer 12/5
I was unconvinced by our conversation, and when I checked the fiction he had placed it was mostly at small experimental presses where I could submit it myself. He told me his approach to submission was to send out a massive blanket submission, which does not seem wise--the whole point of an agent is that I want him to understand the book and specifically target imprints and editors who will appreciate it. I was tormenting over the decision, as I do not yet have another offer in hand, when I saw the warnings here, which made it easier. So thanks to all of you who bothered to post those warnings!

Pay careful attention to ANONYMOUS2017, dearendugoo, and starbaker. I was repped by Mark for several months, feel free to PM me with questions.

I second what starbaker said. There are quite a few of us.

Met at Thrillerfest, asked for full MS. Rejected almost upon receipt, but said it was fine to query other agents at Trident. Guy had a lot of action at Thrillerfest as he was one of the best selling agents there so was a long shot.

Queried August 28 (at night)
Full Manuscript Request August 29
Sent Manuscript in September 1st
Received offer of representation September 2nd.

Mark is generally on top of things, meaning if he's interested in your query, you should expect to hear from him within a few days (unless he's tied up with something). He will also read your manuscript extremely quickly. He's not one to let things sit around.

ER: 10/4/17--He said it wasn't for him, but suggested I query his colleague, Alexander Slater. So I did. We'll see what happens. I think Mr. Gottlieb prefers literary works.
