Linda now has her own agency. (https://lindasglaz.com/ ) She passed on my submission saying it is too much like other projects she is shopping to publishers right now, but said I could "nudge" her later if I don't get a response from other agents.

Check her website. She is currently open to queries.

Critical of my work. If you are going to be critical you should offer something more constructive. There is a lot to be said about manners just not here. I placed her in my do not query list.

DO NOT SUBMIT TO AGENCY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After sending them a proposal I worked on for 2 hours (not worth it, trust me), they rejected it within an hour.
Claim #1 - I had no social media links ANYWHERE when they were in the signature of the query letter email.
Claim #2 - Very uninteresting.
Very cruel & rude, I found. A literary agent should be looking over your proposal, taken proper time that is needed in order to do so, and reading over your chapters instead of rejecting just by one quick look. He even said that he's "getting away from the Christian genre because it doesn't sell as much anymore" where, on the bio of the Hartline website, it actually says otherwise.

.same info in letter to me. Turned them down.
From her bio on agency website:

"Please no works that include any graphic sexuality or profanity."

EQ 10/28/16 (Requery Chain Reaction)--same day rejection. She said she doesn't handle novels with cursing in it. Mine doesn't have any, so I'm thinking she remembers the original back in 2012. I'll try Diana in December with Chain Reaction.

I "know" Linda as we were both fellow writers represented by Hartline when Terry Burns was with them. I believe she took over Terry's position. She's super nice, but I don't think she's any better as an agent than Terry was. She's placed a few books, I believe, in the women's romance/suspense genre. But my experience with the agency was horrible. Terry is a very nice guy, and a good Christian man. Nothing against him. But he sent out letters to publishers with typos in them. He said he read through my book in one sitting, but then was wanting me to re-write things so that it would "force" the reader to turn the first page. Basically, they seem to have a template of "to-dos" for writers that are silly and undefined. What, exactly, will "force" a reader to turn the first page? Wouldn't it be the fact that they found the story interesting enough to pick up in the first place? There's no objective rule that can be used to measure that. It's a purely subjective thing ... and yet I've seen that over and over. Bottom line, I think getting an agent with Hartline would be fine if you are writing a romance/suspense targeted for women. They appear to have connections for that. I'm not sharing this to be derogatory of anyone, just want to share my experience.

6/20/16-Same day rejection for Venom's requery and read it fast. She said it didn't work out for her and didn't hold her interest. She said it needs a lot of work, but that's just her opinion. I disagree. I'll try her with Chain Reaction this summer.

My response from Linda:
Julie, I just don't feel it's quite ready yet for submission.
I'd suggest that you get involved with organizations and take
all the classes they offer. They are two very good ones, ACFW,
and Faithwriters. Both offer classes as part of their membership,
or there are some awesome blogs: Write This Way by Suzanne
Hartmann and Gail Gaymer Martin's blog (can't remember the name
of it) but both offer plenty of good info and advice on writing much
stronger fiction. The dialogue in this just isn't strong enough, in my
opinion. I wish you the best and have no doubt with some hard work
this will be ready to pursue.

I agree with WriterK. The part I most disliked about their incredibly structured "proper proposal" tome was the two sections that asked for market and competitive analysis. Well, uh, isn't that sort of why we're looking for an agent? Aren't YOU supposed to evaluate the market potential and tell US how you'd pitch it to publishers?

If they want us to do the work and then take their 15%, they're looking at the wrong author. They're on my DNQ list.

Eq: 6/20

You know, after all the hoops they make an author jump through just to query them, something more than a "not the right fit" form would be nice. I know agents are busy but that submission requirement list was practically a short story in itself!!
