He asks for the complete novel upfront. Has anyone done this? I'm nervous about sending an entire MS due to copying or plagiarizing. Anyone else?

I emailed a query with first two chapters and immediately received an email back, though it doesn't specify if it's from this sight or not, but I believe it is. Email stated, undeliverable, return to sender. So, who knows.

I received this reply 11/16 Apparently he is closed to queries although this not reflected in QT or his website

I find my current workload is such that I am unable to consider new representation for the time being.

Consequently, I must wish you well with another agent.

Not entirely clear from their website, but I received a rejection that made clear that a no from one agent is a no from all.

Turned down in minutes. It surprises me that they would ask for a genre and place themselves out there for queries and not even read what you send.

He responded within 15 minutes, saying the idea was good but that because I don't have a platform the book wouldn't fly. I talked him into reconsidering, which he is doing.

EQ - 8/21/17
Bob replied, saying he forwarded my email to his colleague Julie (in New Zealand)
ER - 8/27/17 - Julie replied to Bob: I liked this concept but unfortunately I wasn’t hooked enough by either the writing or the storytelling to ask for more.

Thanks KristenH. I can confirm I received the same error. I sent off an enquiry to his other address, but since I'm not sure he wants queries there or not, I'll mark him closed until I learn more.

Patrick, the email address didn't work. It came back as a mailer-daemon on Friday.

I'm really crossing my fingers on this one. He seems like a great guy and agent from what I've read.

Would be a perfect fit for my mystery novel.
