Former colleagues at Christopher Little Agency Caroline Hardman and Joanna Swainson are launching a new agency, Hardman & Swainson. At least 18 existing clients are moving with them, the Bookseller reports, and they will focus on literary and commercial fiction, crime and thriller, YA, and quality non-fiction, including popular science, philosophy and memoir.

From today's Publisher's Lunch email.

As soon as my query is presentable, they're right up my alley, too. Time to get that query to its final draft...

Most girls are made of
sugar and spice and everything nice; they
screwed up the recipe for me: I'm made of
bat wings and broken things.

Query: http://agentquerycon...mercial-fiction

Synopsis: http://agentquerycon...ercial-fiction/

Sorry to be late on this, but how does one access contact info for this agency? I'd appreciate guidance since I'm still figuring out this site.
