CNR: 09-27-2022 Another one who would respond pretty much right away if interested.
ER: 28-Nov-2-22: Personalized and quite sweet, actually. She enjoyed my query but was looking for something more contemporary. Fair enough! I'd query her again with my next (more contemporary!) work!

Adult High Fantasy with romantic elements.

Madison gave me a succinct but personalized rejection. She was very kind and helpful. I'd also like to note that my word count is approximately 140,000 and she did not mention that as a reason for passing. So maybe her 100,000 word rule isn't set in stone!

Rejected within 3 days of submission, she mentioned she never represents books of over 100k words

Was about to query, but noticed that she doesn’t want any manuscripts over 100k words. I was thrilled to see that she loves A Court of Thorns and Roses because it is a comp of mine, but I’m confused about her wanting a story like that, as well as one with good character development, but under 100k words.

I took a chance and queried her. Perhaps she’ll make exceptions for adult fantasy.

This agent is closed for queries - Not sure why it's not showing that way on Query Tracker
