Website says he's no longer looking for fiction.
11/11/2022 07:37 PM
From his website:
As an agent, Eric concentrates on non-fiction, especially in the areas of history, biography, psychology, health and wellness, and pop culture. He also is open to memoir from writers who already have a strong platform.

Eric's Response:
Thanks for reaching out. Although this sounds like an intriguing premise, and you've got the right cinematic inspiration, my list is so full right now that I must pass, with regrets. By all means, keep searching out other agents, as another may well pounce. Whatever happens, best of luck!

Question: if his list is full, why isn't he closed to queries?

3.25.21 Nudged by email and got a very pleasant reply ("you're still in the queue - don't hesitate to nudge again")
6.18.21 ER, with a very kind note

MG time-travel, book 1 of a trilogy
Queried at online agent fest Nov 20, 2020
No interest.

(I admitted it was a draft that wasn't workshopped or beta-read yet.)
Eric was easy to talk to, but really frank. He said a book that's just "fun" without "issues" is "a hard sell right now." I appreciated his honesty, as hard as it was to hear this. I'm going ahead with it, but with a better understanding of why it might not work out.

MG historical, 65,000 words

Request for full MS, but "don't send until mid-January"

Eric seems like a straight shooter, doesn't hold back, whether criticism or praise.

He responded to my query in one day; requested my proposal; and replied to me very quickly with a lovely and encouraging pass.
