I'm closing my January requery to Jay Poynor for Venom. It's another NR. I'll retry him for CR in late May, one last time.

I went to Jay Poynors site suggested by krollman, it isn't open. Bummer. Guess it's old now, it was from 2011.

EQ 4/1/13 Tell Me My Name Romantic suspense.
Jay Poynor. Different sort of site, not familiar with all the "extras" on them. But not to wordly yet about some of this, heehee. I just wonder what all they are doing when they don't have the standard agency representation on their sites. I'm single focused I guess. heehee

On 10/4/2010, I've equeried him on my ms. After the response time expired, I did a follow-up two weeks ago. No word. It's closed.

9/22/11--requerying Venom, though he changed genres. 2/13/12--nudged two weeks ago. Now no response.

This agent was very responsive to my query...phoned me within 3 days, requeted full ms. Very plesant to speak to, not 'upptiy' like some agents...

If you have polished, ready-to-roll, ms with a new or edgy voice, this guy is for you.

In your mailbox, have the email you want selected but not opened & click 'status' at the bottom. If the other person has aol, it will tell you what time they opened it, or if they deleted it, it'll say that, or else unread.

I have aol so when you mail other people with aol, you can check the status of the mail. He deleted my query without reading it. I had the word 'query' in the subject line too, and the genre. Leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
