Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.

Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).

Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.

And NEVER give money to an "agent".

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

"Closed for Good" - took a look at their website and it doesn't say anything though, when you look at the website, its a website in progress and its going to be a e-publisher - so perhaps they are converting to becoming an e-publisher? Though, they really should update their website s so people don't email queries.

Perhaps Patrick will have more luck finding something out?

I just queried today and got the following autoresponse:

"The Agency will close for good- Jan 1st 2013. Please visit and check out our terrific list of authors."

Oh, well.

6/22/12, I requeried Venom again. As of last month, belatedly, no response to my nudge. I might try him again in 2013.

I agree--the instructions are confusing. The first two steps indicate email and then switches to the online form. I used the online form.

EQ: 9/4/2012--cozy mystery
