Interested in serious nonfiction.

No response on short story collection. I waited the amount of weeks the lit agency indicated. I appreciate his consideration nonetheless.

CNR @ 72 days.

FR: 10/31/22 Nice note from Noah-I'm guessing he's an intern? Also, I guess this is a rejection from the whole agency?

Catsamoa79, They are switching over to QueryManager. I'm working on updating their profiles now.

Patrick - Does this agent want you to email him directly or use the Query Manager form, as directed under their submission instructions?

Got another offer, and he hadn’t been responding to my last few nudging emails so I emailed I was closing out the submission and marked this as closed / no response.

I wouldn't recommend querying this agent. From my own experience and from the comments below, he requests fulls but then never replies. It's a real heart breaker to keep hoping for months for an answer.

EQ: 1/21/2016
RF: 1/21/2016
And then no reply ever, even with a variety of politely spaced nudges.

EQ 3/4/17 (requery Venom)
CNR 6/26/17 (No word from 2 nudges, the first from paternity leave.) Will retry Laney with Venom next month.

Hi max_entropy. He's there, it's just a crowded page and hard to find things.

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.
