Darn it, I was planning to query him except that Jenna Shaw, his assistant, is also Rebecca Sherman's assistant. So I guess she rejected me for both of them, a lovely two-fer.

Since Mr. Write is listed as a snail-mail kind of guy, I snail-mailed, including 20 pages as he requests.

Got a form rejection with no returned pages in the nearly $2 SASE I attached.

Grrr.

No more expensive snail mail queries for this gal.

I haven't had one agent open a WEBook query. Others supposedly have, but I would suggest unless an agent specifically says to query through WEBook, stick to whatever they outline (email or snailmail). (Even then, I'm not sure how often they really check it)

Has anybody sent Mr. Wright a query through WEBOOK which he has opened?

I couldn't find any email address either but sent it to kwright@writershouse.com, and it hasn't been returned.
