Dear Ms. Hansen,
I have attempted, as per your request for my R&R on my MG dance novel, to submit, but Query Tracker will not let me. I emailed the manuscript to one of your agents that accepts emails - addressing you. Since I haven't heard from you I plan on proceeding with publication elsewhere. If you are interested please contact me asap. Thank you for your earlier consideration.

They recently posted: "2018 in Review-Multiple Metamorphosis Literary Agency authors have received thousands of dollars in advances through Metamorphosis' deals with prominent publishing houses. One of the most recent deals included illustrations from one of the top agencies. Many of the authors who signed with smaller houses received multiple offers. Many of their deals were negotiated to higher advances and/or royalties covering the agency commission. Many of the most recent deals with smaller houses included audiobook publication. Sub-rights are also co-agented with successful foreign and film agencies. Metamorphosis Literary Agency has made over 30 book deals and continues to grow."

I've also read the thread about this agency on absolutewrite. It sounds alarming, so I've crossed this agency off my query list.

Ms. Hansen was extremely helpful in her suggestions for my Middle Grade manuscript. I've revised and resubmitted with her wonderful ideas in mind!

Something to consider for anyone considering this agent (or anyone at the agency, for that matter):

This agency is made up mostly of writers who embarked into the agenting world. They all represent each other, and none of them have sales to any major houses (aside from eBooks). Their bios claim they represent bestselling authors, yet they list no specific names and none of my searches turn up any big-names they’ve represented. Many of their sales are to small presses that accept un-agented submissions—so deals a writer can get on their own without representation, and the client now has to cut the agent in 15% for the deal.

They’re nice people and I think they genuinely mean well, but they don’t have any pull within the publishing agency nor any connections at major publishing houses (from what I can tell). So think carefully about your publishing goals before submitting here or accepting an offer.

Also, I’m not sure why a certain user on here is constantly trying to bury negative comments. But it’s obvious what you’re doing and it’s suspicious.

I have mixed feelings about submitting here. There are a lot of positive recent comments, but HairyBaby's comment further below is important, and it seems like these positive comments have all been posted only after Hairy's. The thread on absolute write is also a little concerning.
