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...

MR_Work is indeed correct! If it's on the internet then the cat is out of the bag... (Unfortunately nobody's going to be seeing that sweet GRRM money yet...)

Sam Morgan will be appearing at the Willamette Writers' Conference and his blurb says he is at The Lotts Agency.

MR_Work - did you look at the CLIENT LIST for the Lott Agency????
from MR_Work

Just did some sleuthing -- googled all his clients listed here on QT, went to their websites, and dug around until I found wherever they reference their agent. Most still say he's at Foundry, but two of them indicate "Sam Morgan at The Lotts Agency." Though he's not listed on The Lotts Agency website at this time -- I checked -- his clients' info can't be out-of-date (since prior to joining Foundry, Sam was at JABberwocky). Thus, I think we can conclude The Lotts Agency is, indeed, Sam's soon-to-be-official new home.
Still no announcement, but hope this helps shed some light for y'all.

MR_Work - Wow, I hadn't realized how long it had been - but then again, I still have two other agents I queried before him who have been closed for a while to catch up... I like all three, so I'm willing to wait and not CNR. But yeah, it's been a while! I hope someone else knows more.

Anyone have updates about what's going on with the agency move? I'm hoping I've simply missed an announcement, but in the absence of any kind of "hang in there query-ers, still finalizing logistics, I'll be back at my inbox soon" from him, I'm inclined to CNR this. Major bummer, since he seems great, but....again, maybe I missed something! Does anyone know anything?

Hi Lacey, clients belong to the agent and not the agency. I am a client of Sam's, we are all in the process of signing over to the new agency and releasing from Foundry. When that happens there will probably be an official announcement !*!*!*!

Earth2Andy I won't email him but I've given up on him. It's possible he might not be able to take queries from one agency to another. Don't the accepted clients belong to the agency and not the agent?
