Patrick, I saw these tweets via the #MSWL feed:


@samroebuck

So yeah all you beautiful people doing #mswl and #amwriting and #amquerying send me all your adult fantasy and sci-fi and horror and amazing commercial fiction. Still looking for the same stuff and my tastes have only gotten better.

Wanna query me? Hit me up at:

smquery at lottsagency dot com

Things to include:
Query pasted into email
Up to first three chapters (either pasted or attached, but attachments get weird so be careful)

From his twitter account: "Hey y’all, need to clear my head for a bit and so going to log off social media. I’m still reachable if you need me! / Also this isn’t the announcement about queries (promise that’s still coming!) but will announce that at the right time! / Have a great summer!"

Sounds like whoever wants to query him will need to wait till September.

MR_Work - Congrats on the offer of rep, though, regardless of who you end up working with! That's fantastic!

January 2? -- "liked" #SFFpit tweet
January 30 -- EQ
May 6 -- send nudge with offer of rep to Foundry e-mail; then DM him on Twitter to ask if I should use another address; he replies promptly with his new e-mail; I send offer-of-rep nudge to that address.
May 7 -- he replies asking if I can re-send the query and pages to this address, because he hadn't been able to bring all his Foundry e-mails with him. I do so.
May 9 -- form rejection.
I was always 50/50 on whether my particular MS was something Sam would connect to, and it turns out that, indeed, he didn't. Which is 100% fine! Take this as today's example of "publishing is subjective," guys.
Good luck you all! Rooting for you!

I pinged him on Twitter to ask if I need to requery him and he said no that he was still considering my query and thanked me for my patience. That was at the beginning of March, but I don't expect him to make decisions until he's "officially" moved.

Laura_WA -- I don't know the answer to your question, but hopefully we'll soon at least get his updated contact info! I need to get in touch with him shortly for due diligence re: status update, but...does he still have access to his Foundry e-mail 2.5 months after leaving the agency? If not, I'm going to have to use Twitter, and that seems a little...informal, or something.

So... can we start querying him? Lol. Seriously, though, does anyone know if we need to resubmit our queries and pages? I've altered mine a bit since January...
