How do you strike the balance between already having something too similar & it being too far out of your remit/interests? #AskAgent
Replying to @thisactorslife

I would say that I represent books in the same genre for sure but the pitch can’t be too close. So two novels which are thrillers set in Cornwall, fine, two novels which are thrillers set in Cornwall where a nun is the detective - not fine #askagent

Elizabeth Frattaroli @ELIZFRAT

Do you prefer your authors to have a brand and stick to one genre/target age range, or would you encourage people to try and diversify once they are established? (I'm thinking particularly of YA writers at present, as I know some have been asked to write up or down) #askagent
Replying to @ELIZFRAT

If I sign someone for a novel in X genre, I know it's likely that the publisher will want to build them in that area - readers tend to be loyal to genre rather than author, unless they are successfully established already. However, you can diversify with pen names etc #AskAgent

Why do increasing amounts of agents just not get back to writers at all, despite their website promises? Excluding the lovely & polite agents replying to this hashtag of course...

Replying to @MyRejections

I do respond to every submission, which is a time-consuming process. However, it can be quite painful to take the time to read & respond and then receive a snarky, mean spirited reply: my rejection is never intended personally, whereas people often take them that way. #AskAgent
