Beware querying writers:

I saw something on Twitter about this agent cosigning another agent on harmful advice to querying writers & her blocking other authors/writers who spoke out against it.

Please be aware that any agent telling you that you shouldn't want to follow up with other agents once they themselves offer to represent you or trying to make you feel wrong for asking for up to two weeks to follow up with another agents who already have the manuscript just because they already expressed enthusiasm or desire to represent you is not an agent who is looking out for your best interest & not a good fit for any writer.

"I enjoyed your animated writing but did not feel a strong connection to your narrator. I am afraid that I am going to pass.”
She might have read it quickly because I said another agent was reading it.
I asked for elaboration on her comments, but none was given.

I queried her and ten minutes later she called me saying she loved my idea and we spoke for a half an hour (she basically offered me representation). She asked me to send her the book and said she would start reading and then call me back if she liked it. She called me back and hour later telling me she loved it and was so excited to find me and would love to work with me. Then I never heard from her. After 30 days, I emailed her and she said that she was "too busy" and I should try someone else. SERIOUSLY?
