10/5: Odd Online query form. The confirmation e-mailed to me included an advertisement for their own book which seemed... unprofessional? Possibly conflict of interest? Makes me question sending them a query.

"Thank you for submitting to Serendipity Literary Agency. Because of the volume of submissions we receive, it might take us some time to respond. If you don't hear back in 4 weeks please email Regina Brooks directly at

Online Query - 09/19
Form Reject - 09/20
Form rejection one year later - really? Why bother? Won't be subbing to them again.

I had the weirdest experience with Kelly through this agency. First off, they have their own online form. I sent a query on 9 September 2019. Since they say no response is a pass - I wrote it off as a pass. On May 1st of 2020 I got a full request. What? I send it may 2nd. I ask for a follow up 18 August, and 19 August I get a form rejection designed to reject queries with. The agent feels very behind and off balance.

kind form letter:

We have received and reviewed your query for your manuscript. We greatly appreciate your sending your ideas to us for consideration. Because of the number of submissions our agency receives, we often are not able to take on clients who merit publication. While we believe that your ideas might have market appeal, we are not convinced that we could represent it successfully at this time.Thank you for considering Serendipity Literary Agency. We wish you the best of luck in all your future writing endeavors! Sincerely, Submissions Team

Sorry, looks like I jumped the gun marking them as open. Even though their website states they are opening today, they haven’t released their form yet.

EQ/FR: 12/3/19 sent query with full MS based on referral from Regina Brooks through one of Regina's clients
12/4/19 received enthusiastic acknowledgment, with caveat that this time of year is busy and to ping her if I don't hear back by mid-Jan.
12/11/19 received update letting me know that she's enjoying the MS. In QueryLand, where there's a lot of silence and rejection, I really appreciate her updates and enthusiasm for my characters
