As mentioned earlier this week, new email address for queries. query.jjackson@maassagency.com

As per my submission guidelines, only queries sent to query.jjackson@maassagency.com will be guaranteed a reply. Queries sent to info@maassagency.com may receive delayed replies.

Please do not send to both addresses.

I have replied to queries sent to the info address as of 3/1/11. If your query pre-dates that, please re-send to the new email address.

The material I want is still the same:

* query letter with pitch and any relevant information about the author
* first 5 pages of the novel, pasted into the email
* synopsis of the novel (1-3 pages is a good benchmark), pasted into the email
* no attachments – they will not be read

This is your brain on queries. Any questions?
