Ralph Vicinanza of the self-named agency passed away over the weekend. If he was on your "to query" list, you can take him off.

  • Publishing Experience:Journalist covering U.S. nonprofits, foundations, and life in general. President and Chief Elephant Officer of Elephant's Bookshelf Press, LLC. Since establishing the company in 2012, we have published ten books, including short stories by several AQC writers and debut novels by AQC authors A.T. O'Connor (aka Cat Woods), "ScubaSteve" Carman, and R.S. Mellette. Heading into 2016, we're aiming to publish at least two books, including the second Mellette novel and an anthology. In 2015, I saw a few memoir/nonfiction pieces published in Red Fez. I expect to do more of that in 2016 and beyond, while also looking to add freelance editing and writing clients.

Whoa, he had been major agent. Used to rep Stephen King among other well known horror writers.

Very sudden, from what I read, and still relatively young. And so soon after literary agent Elaine Koster passed.
