About Ali Herring

Assistant Literary Agent for Spencerhill Associates. Twin-mom + 1. 

I like to stay up late. I wish I could sleep in. And I drink coffee to support my bad habits. Yet there’s productivity in my sleep-depriving ways. I love my wonderful clients (Go #TeamSpencerhill!) and make it a point to work hard to see them succeed. I also can’t wait to discover who might join that list, and wonder if that somebody might be you. One thing I do know, authors come in all stages of development, and no matter where you are on your journey, I hope you might find me a sympathetic and helpful voice as you learn and develop your craft. You’ll find a Q&A on this site if you have questions, and I’m also active on Twitter (@HerringAli) offering #writetips and just in general being uber chatty.

TO QUERY me, please USE THIS ONLINE form: https://querymanager.com/query/1032. I do not consider queries sent to my email address or the Spencerhill general email account. I only answer queries sent to my personal email if I’ve requested them via a contest or you have a referral. Do not make me ERASE you a la Arnold Schwarzenegger. I’ve been known to occasionally forego the “form” query response and give feedback too, and while time doesn’t always permit this, I wish I could do it for everyone.

Writers. Keep writing.

    If I queried 7 months ago and got a rejection, but now your Twitter #MSWL matches exactly what I have, can I query again (and reference your tweet)?
