She posted on twitter that she likes mysteries. I submitted directly to her inbox instead of the online form and she responded right away! She said if we anything changes or I get an offer to let her know. I received an offer and I let her know and she hurried up and read my manuscript. She didn't end up liking it but it was nice to have communication. Its ok cause I got an offer from anotehr agency!!! But I appreciated her responsiveness.

On agency web site: Kelly is most interested in nonfiction (narrative nonfiction, memoirs, true crime), and adult fiction (psychological thrillers, mysteries, suspense, comedies).

It does not list YA or adult SFF.

The same thing happened to me with one I book I queried back in 2019. While I think they are official, they seem to be really behind on everything.

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.

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
