Dear Author,

Please forgive this impersonal note but the high volume of correspondence makes it difficult for us to respond to you personally. Thank you for your query. Unfortunately it doesn’t match what we are looking for at this time. We hope other agents feel differently.

Best of luck.

I meant to post here when my deal got announced last month, but I forgot!

I signed with Tamar in February 2015. This summer, she sold my fantasy series, FOREST OF A THOUSAND LANTERNS, in a three-book deal with Philomel/Penguin! You can read about my long, long, long journey here:

Tamar's a kind, brilliant, and supportive agent, and she's a tough negotiator. She literally made my biggest dream come true. I collected painful agent rejections for over eight years and I know firsthand how disheartening this process can be. But I sincerely hope - whether you've queried Tamar or another agent - that you keep going and end up with someone who genuinely cares about your career the way she does about mine.
