Who they represent:
What they’re looking for:
How to query:
What to send:

On another note:
I read the first chapter to Across the Universe by Beth Revis. It was available for 12 hours today and it totally rocked. I stopped at chapter 2, because I'd rather read it from a book, which I'm buying tomorrow. Um, maybe I wouldn't like a kindle.
