He advised of too high of a word count advising to get it down to 100,000. When responded nearly at 100,000 he then advised he wanted 80,000 and referred to my manuscript as bloated without ever having read a word of it.

I am no longer repped by Mr. Mecoy. Although I found him to be very skillful on the editorial/MS prep side of things, he never sold anything I sent him. While that is not unusual, I found out a couple of months ago that I lost a deal because he failed to send in the finalized/signed agreement. And he lied to me about submitting a different MS to a particular publisher. (Assured me he had sent it in and even corresponded with the lead editor. When I followed up - having just learned that he had not completed the other deal - I was told they had never seen my MS.) Because of this I no longer recommend querying Mr. Mecoy. YMMV
