Kind rejection 2/2/23, stating she has a very full YA Fantasy list and she is extremely selective.

Still, was nice to finally get something that wasn't a form reject.

Reject because she doesn't rep adult romance. I was confused because QT says she does

Slightly personalized form saying my book was good but a little too "epic" for her taste. Probably not a good fit for second world (YA) fantasy in general since my book isn't really epic at all. Also got the note saying her YA fantasy list is pretty full at present.

Emailed Query: 1/3/23 (For those asking, I pasted all of my materials into the body of the email rather than as an attachment.)

Kind reply passing due to Fantasy list being very full at the moment: 1/12/23

Is this actually a literary agency? Their PM page talks first off about film and television.

This agent requests both sample pages and a synopsis. How are you all sending your materials? As attachments or pasted in the body of the email?

I'll second the mention that she's open to queries.
I've been struggling to figure out what this agent's expected response time is. Their website is as good as nonexistent. Anybody know anything? TIA.
