First off, I don't understand why you're listing Michelle Glance Rooney as a top agent. She has no sales per Publisher's Marketplace and is listed on many websites as charging fees and changing the name of her "agency" several times in the last years. Secondly, most of your agent information is wrong. Most of these agents do accept email queries. And some of them are top agents for genres they don't even represent! Ugh.

This is simply too much for my poor little heart to find that Michele Glance Rooney is also a top agent for mystery books. How does she manage to sell so many books in order to land on five different top agent lists? My heart is thumping so much with anticipation of learning the titles and ISBNs of the mystery books Michele represented and sold. I do so fervently hope that the operator of Literary Agent News shares that information with us especially since such information would be publicly available. I simply must know the titles and ISBNs of the books Michele has represented in romance, business, young adult, fantasy, and mystery.

With all due respect, some of the names on this list are not renowned for being literary agents with an interest in mysteries. Honestly, I'd re-do this Blog entry if you wish to maintain your credibility...
