So because Ms. Birnbaum insists on snail mail I thought I'd check her website to see what's going on. Oh, wait. No website. Maybe somebody really should do a wellness check.

I would go to the postmaster but the T-Rex ate my coronavirus. Wow. Someone should take Agnes' pulse. Can she still get ribbons for her IBM Selectric?

Snail mail. Really?
Sorry, my telegram machine broke.

Thanks chbrewer. I updated her profile to show she is no longer a member of AAR.

Agents always come and go from the AAR. Leaving doesn't necessarily indicate something bad happened.

This agent does NOT appear in the AAR database. I wonder why not? QT says she is. Is she trustworthy?

SQ 2/15/19 (2nd/final requery Chain Reaction)
SR 4/25/19 (Passed--not good fit)

What's wrong with an online form or Query Manager or email, Whatawriter? It's the only way to keep track of your queries and for agents too.

You guys are hardy souls to submit snail mail. I simply skip agents who don't even provide an online form. Ridiculous in this day and age.

I can imagine Agnes in her office, using a Selectric typewriter, reading glasses perched on th end of her nose, nary a pc in sight, slitting open envelopes containing book proposals. "Wow," she says, patting her perfectly coiffed blue hair, "I got three whole queries today! This is twenty-three skidoo!"

Absurd to expect anyone to submit via regular mail in 2018. As if sending queries isn't hard enough on an author, this agent expects them to also spend money on postage and paper to most likely be rejected? Come on, have some mercy.
