Despite being in business for many years/having a popular agent podcast/having a good Twitter following, this agent has only ever sold one book, according to Publishers Marketplace. Perhaps this will change now that she's at a better agency, but query with caution.

Does anyone know if she'll reply to queries now that she's with a new agency or does no answer mean no?

@chrystalS I didn't get one either. I suspect it's not set up yet

Did everyone that queried her receive an auto-confirmation email (at her KT email)? I made sure to put 'query' in the subject, but haven't received a confirmation email yet.

songwave -typically when those don't match, they'll take either. You're not going to be penalized for following rules that she has posted on her site

Originally queried a few weeks before she left Red Sofa. Re-query to new email/agency.

Kelly’s guidelines on her website are different than the guidelines on the agency website. Does anyone know which are correct?
