Jessica’s Query Status

  • By: Jessica Faust | Date: Sep 06 2011

As promised: I said to check back in September to see when I would open for queries. Well, there’s been a change of plans. I’ve so enjoyed the time I have had to just spend with my clients that for the time being I’m going to accept queries by referral only. This means what it says, you need to have a bona fide referral from someone I know in order for your query to be considered by me.

It’s not such bad news however. 2011 has been a fabulous year for BookEnds. We’ve added Jessica Alvarez to our team and longtime assistant and former intern Lauren Ruth has also started growing her list. And of course, Kim Lionetti is always looking to add talented new authors to her roster. So even though I’m closed, there are plenty of opportunities with BookEnds.

Keep an eye on the blog in the following days and weeks for updates on exactly what excites Kim, Jessica, and Lauren these days.

    At the risk of sounding trite…oh wait…where is Ms. Trite. A hand goes up in the back.
    “I’m here,” Ms. Trite says.
    “Jessica dear, your decision is a win-win for you and your team. They get to build their lists and you get to spend time with your clients. So, ‘damn the torpedoes full speed ahead.”

    Ms. Trite’s first name is Cliché, she French.

    LOL…what? You think you deserve a REAL LIFE? Away from the office? Shame on you…

    But I think it's a very wise decision.

  4. Darn, and here I was hoping to have a chance to query the most wonderful, the wisest, the most beautiful, the most amazing agent ever. Ever, on the face of the planet, ever.

    Hmm–referrals–so if I stalk your neighbors and have them hand you my query, would that count? 🙂

    Just kidding on all but the superlatives, of course.
