Patrick - Is Celeste now only repping NON-FICTION (celebs, doctors, etc.) just like her AAR profile says? Her personal website says this:

Literary Agent Celeste Fine and her team at Sterling Lord Literistic represent authors with strong national and international platforms in general nonfiction, health, science, personal development, food, business, academia, and lifestyle.

Nothing on the Sterling Lord Literistic site indicates any of the genres in the Fiction category either.

Don't use the website link for Celeste. It brings you to an incomplete website. Follow any of the others and you will get accurate information about their submission process. Sadly, I sent mine off before I figured this out.

I actually just sent a query to Taylor Bacques, a new agent who is not listed here unless I'm overlooking his name. The website says the agency accepts snail mail queries, but he agreed to consider an email from me. I was especially excited to pitch to him because he is from New Orleans, like me, and went to college at UNC-Chapel Hill, where I attended law school!

KristenH,
Looks like you have sil.com instead of sll.com (i instead of L)
