This agent & agency require a full outline for non-fiction. Is that a book summary, chapter summaries, proposal...?

Really nice note, especially since the Website mentions no response often = the response. So many agents no longer respond that I really feel like writers should support those who do respond.

"Thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately, I don’t feel I will be the right fit for this project. I’m sorry not to have better news, but I appreciate the opportunity to consider your query and wish you all the best in your path to publication."

The timeline I hear most often is three months for nudging. For what it's worth, in the data explorer only the 3/15 and earlier submissions are showing replies.

@Spacerog, same boat. Book matches perfectly with her MSWL, form R. Starting to really wonder if agents even know what they want at all.

Did anyone here include their synopsis and the first ten pages? I included mine and I’m curious about her response time with those two things included.

- Which I find interesting because the book matches exactly with her MSWL

@jjadamson if you go to her MSWL, you will find she is looking for adult fantasy.

Twitter profile says she is interested in YA "low fantasy" a la Ninth House. Having Fantasy listed as a genre here is a bit misleading (she's not interested in adult fantasy).
