Like others could not for the life of me find her preference or bio on ICM website, so I emailed a query letter with first two chapters of my 90K debut upmarket fiction on 8/7.

As per KristenH's comment, I went to Agentquery.com and found a short entry for her. MSWL is still a mystery, but apparently she just wants a query letter with no samples.

And nothing about spirituality. Nothing. Nada. No. LOL

To this agency submit the usual, whatever you've been sending out. ICM is basically a Hollywood Agency, so they'll respond if they think your manuscript will make a good movie o series. On the other hand, they're highly efficient, so if you don't get an answer after two weeks, move on. I have had dealings with them. And, don't forget a good movie pitch! Like "burned out NYPD officer moves to a sleepy summer town to get away from blood and city politics when a giant white shark munches on a cute girl."

Finley, try Agentquery.com or the Guide of Literary Agents.

The ICM website has zero information about agents or contacting them. Where did everyone find the submission guidelines for Jennifer?

7/16 autoreply from assistant: I am currently traveling the world and basking in a momentary respite from the rigors of the professional world. For urgent matters please contact Jennifer Joel. Otherwise, I will get back to you when I return on Tuesday, July 24th. Thank you for your patience.

Dear ___,

On behalf of Jennifer Joel, thank you for your query. I'm sorry to report that this project is not quite the right fit for Ms. Joel's list. Please keep in mind that this is one agent's subjective response.

We wish you the best of luck in pursuing publication.

Thanks and all the best,


Office of Jennifer Joel
