Why is he not listed anymore on the official Donald Maass Agency? He's one of the few agents I've seen who specifically request humorous SFF.

4/24/21 - request for 50 pages with first submission.
8/3/21 - agent withdrew interest as it 'isn't a good time to take on a new client.' also mentioned the QM file attachment would not open, but file was fine prior to attaching. Shrug. Keep on keepin' on.

EQ 7/7/19.
PR 7/24/19 and I sent the same day

Read an update on his agent profile that he has been closed to queries since Dec 2019, and as of Sept 2020, he is going through partial and full MS requests. Still no update on my querytracker but keeping fingers crossed.

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.
