Form letter via email and Submittable. Looks like it was signed by an assistant. A little over the 3-4 month time frame they state.

Well, she said the query was well written. That and a couple of bucks will buy me a coffee.

Does anyone know if you get a confirmation email for the online submission form? On 4/7/15, I tried the online form but didn't get a confirmation email. Is this normal?

Sent partial today (October 7), as I needed to craft an outline. I have no idea whether it was too long, too short, or just about right! We'll see. . . .

10/9: Confirmation email from her new assistant (came on somewhere after 8/25), Serene Hakim.

10/22: submitted revised chapter after receiving helpful comments from another agent -- Serene is lovely and it's a pleasure to email with someone so thoughtful and communicative.
