Just got this email today:

“It is with heavy heart that I share that our founder and owner of Blue Ridge Literary Agency, Dawn Dowdle, passed away November 12, 2023. Her family has decided to close the agency, which, unfortunately means that I can not accept queries or take on clients.

I wish all the best with your book.

Leslie Truex
Blue Ridge Literary Agency”

I wish her, the other Blue Ridge agents, and Dawn’s family the best. What a tragedy for all of them.

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
