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
