  1. Thanks for the info, Marie. Some of these I've heard of, but others are new to me.

    I do have a question: Has anyone else queried Larson - Pomada and got a canned rejection along with an invite to buy a book on submissions published by one of the two? That left a sour taste in my mouth.

    1. Thanks for coming by Sharon :). No, I recently got a rejection from Laurie McLean (of that agency) but she didn't try to sell me a book. That's pretty tacky of them to have that in their rejections though.
