The submission methods on this agent's entry are incorrect - he does not accept postal submissions and prefers emails to his assistant.

Originally queried back in November 2020, but I hit bad luck with out of office replies. Followed up 2021/03/09 with assistant Kate, and decided to withdraw the original submission and send revised material.

Emailed assistant Kate--likely got a form rejection, it's a blur

Form rejection: "...he doesn’t feel that he could successfully represent it for you, and so won’t ask to see the rest of the typescript. He is taking on so few new clients at the moment, he needs to feel completely committed to a project in order to take it further.

Friendly rejection from his assistant, doesn't think he could successfully represent novel, taking on few clients.

Mr. Kirby is closed to fiction per response email: "Robert is currently focussing on nonfiction projects so is not taking on any fiction."

I used the one on here - and thanks - I have my fingers crossed!

Which e-mail did you query? The one on here seems different from the one listed for queries on the website.

Good luck with your partial!

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.
