Submission guidelines ask for a "marketing statement" from the author in the event they request a MS. From her website: "A marketing statement contains information about who will buy and read the book, how the book can be sold by the publisher, and how you as an author will work to promote the book. The statement should answer the following questions about who will buy the book: Who is the target audience for this book? Why is it timely, important, newsworthy, etc.? Why did you write the book? It's also helpful if you include an answer to the end of the following sentence: “My book is the first ever to….” If there are any relevant statistics or figures, these are helpful too particularly for books, both fiction and non-fiction, that focus on a theme or topic. We don't need to know which publishers you think would want to publish the project, that's our job. We want to know who will read it and how you as an author plan to support the book once it's on bookshelves so that it becomes a successful title."

A strange request for a fiction MS (in my experience anyway). Also a little premature.
Agent is closed to queries for Aug. 2017 and will reopen in Sep 2017 per website.

From query submission to form rejection in 10 days. Rejection form is somehow more cold, curt and impersonal than the usual: "Dear Writer: Thank you for your inquiry. We are sorry that we cannot invite you to submit your work or offer to represent you. Moreover, we apologize that we cannot respond in a more personal manner. We wish you the best of luck elsewhere."
