To my amazed delight, I stumbled across the following on Publishers Marketplace's page for Movable Type Literary Organization(

"Having found that that query letters do a fine job of showcasing one's talent in writing jacket copy or promotional material but rarely offer agents a useful preview of a writer's prosecraft, in lieu of query letters, MTLG asks that authors send the first ten pages of their manuscript, followed by a one page synopsis of the balance of the work, and a word count."

Well, it's about time! I do believe I'll send brave Mr. Ashlock a few sample pages.   :)

I agree he looks interesting, but did you notice that there are no names listed under his client list?  There are a couple other things on the linked site that have me a bit wary, as well.  But, hey, you got nothing to lose until he asks for money.
