Hi April,

In terms of getting a reply to your query, my understanding from previous queries and just looking at their track record on Data Explorer is that this agency is a non-responder unless they want to see more of your MS.

So you'll see a lot of "CNRs" (closed-no response). Plus they've got one of the worst request rates. Meaning, I wouldn't expect any answers from them.

Please let us know, however, if they do give a response.

I sent a query on feb 9th/14 with a follow up March 26th/14 as i've noticed that even if it is a rejection they still send at least a form letter back. So fingers crossed I will here something from them soon.

Ozzy: Preditors & Editors, a site I use religiously to doublecheck agencies and agents, shows no red flags for them. It also indicates they have confirmed sales and is a recommended agency. Good luck!

Like CorinneDuyvis, I submitted directly to Monica Pacheco, as directed by the agency blog post "what we are looking for in 2010" (http://mcdermidagency.blogspot.com/2010_01_01_archive.html)

I just queried Monica Pacheco, one of her agents, who is interested in genre fiction among other things. (See also this page: http://mcdermidagency.blogspot.com/2010/01/what-were-looking-for-in-2010.html)

Is she eligible for an agent profile of her own or should I enter my data here?

ETA: just in case anyone else is checking this, I got a full request two days later. The query was sent to Monica's personal address, as indicated in the blog post.
