EQ 12/5/19: Submission request from Rose Friel of the agency through PitMad pitch, AF 94k
ER: 12/11/19: Very polite, semi-form letter. Rose was the one who liked my pitch, Elizabeth Copps responded to the query : "...The premise is incredibly intriguing, but I regret that I wasn’t as taken with the sample pages as I need to be to move forward. Of course my opinion is very subjective, and I’m certain you will partner with the perfect representative."

I appreciate her quick response!

I wish you a wonderfully successful publishing career!
