7/13/20 - Twitter update: A quick query update: I have responded to all QueryManager queries through July 9th.

I still have a few I'm holding over to read again.

I just checked QueryManager and mine is still listed as having no decision. Perhaps She's still holding onto mine. I'll keep it open a bit longer.

Jana requested a different ms of mine last year and ultimately passed with kind, uplifting feedback. She seems like a delight to work with, so fingers crossed that she falls in love with this story! :)

Does anybody here know if this is a legitimate agency? The sales listed on the web site are mostly to low-level publishers, and these publishers accept submissions directly from an agent isn't even needed, unless you just want someone to take a cut of your royalties. Some of the agents have written books that have been published by these same "publishers," and the agents represent each other, which is odd. Also, agents generally have experience working at major publishing houses or at established literary agencies, but it doesn't seem that any of the agents at this agency do. I'm confused. Does anyone have experience or information to share? For example, if you signed with the agency, did your agent sell your book, and to which publisher? Further, if you look up the agency on Absolute Write, the comments are not positive.

Form Rejection:

Thank you for querying me with the first three chapters of TITLE. I'm sorry to say that, while the manuscript sounds interesting, it is not a good fit for me at this time.
Thank you again for the opportunity to read TITLE, and I wish you the best of luck with your writing endeavors. Please feel free to query Metamorphosis Literary Agency in the future.

MyLittleCthulhu Congrats on your offer! I was wondering if you minded sharing what your ER from Jana was like? Did she give any personalized feedback?
