From their one-page website at

"The partnership of Anna Cottle and Mary Alice Kier represents film/tv, dramatic stage and musical rights for books and plays."

Sounds to me like they aren't representing unpublished authors' works.

I've sent out my query on 10/28, right before my query break, as I refine Venom for a few weeks, before I sent out more. I've heard back from her today. "It didn't strike a chord..." was my rejection.

On 4/8, I've sent her my query for Chain Reaction. I've heard back from her. Same response as in November last year. I'm going to hold off for awhile, before I'll try Anna Cottle this summer.
