Edit: As it says she started her own agency, I am planning to requery when more information goes up about that on her website or elsewhere.

There was an online form at the bottom of their submission guidelines, but I sent an email because that seemed to be the more accurate suggestion in context of everything else. I put "ATTN: Lori Kilkelly; The Lost Elementalist: Rising Storm" in the subject line. This is the automated response email confirming receipt: "Thank you for your submission to Rodeen Literary Management, Inc.

Please understand that our resources are limited and we will therefore contact you directly only if we feel we can place your submission with a publisher. Please feel free to email us to update your status - for example if another agent offers representation.

We do not require or respond to "queries," so if you have sent a query rather than a synopsis and submission, please review our submission guidelines: https://www.facebook.com/RodeenLiterary/info and feel free to send along your actual submission. Please note, if you put Query in the subject line, but DID include your submission, it is NOT necessary to resend; we will review it."

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.
