6/2 EQ
6/6 ER Nicely stated rejection stating work has merit but doesn't fit criteria. They're more interested in romance. Maybe they send this to every client, if so that's a nice response.

Hi Voxeterna1,
Her AAR profile is the only thing I've found. It's listed here in the Main tab.

Question: this agent doesn't seem to have a website? I've never run into that before. I see the guidelines listed here, but before I query I would like to check in with their website at least. Does anyone know if she has one?

Ms. Hopkins was very professional and courteous. She requested a partial of my manuscript and got back to me within a month. Although she passed on the project, when I thanked her for her time, she sent another email in response which others would not have done.

They are only taking romance novels.
EQ sent on the 17th December 2016 and rejection on the 16th January 2017 with this email response:
I apologize for taking so long to reply. The holidays and vacation time affect our reading schedule.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to decline pursuing representation of this project. While it sounds like there is much of merit in your work, we're not generally handling this type of material. We are mainly concentrating on women's genre romance novels, an area in which we have expertise and have been most successful. This project doesn't appear to be within the specific guidelines of genre romance.

Thanks for thinking of my agency. I wish you success in locating someone to represent this manuscript and finding a fine publishing house.

Sincerely,

Pam

I guess I never wrote an initial thing about my Query with Pamela Hopkins.

While it was a form, it still let me down easy with the whole "Subjective" aspect. Definitely hurt less than the first manuscript rejection. That, or I'm starting to just expect it. Thinking about adding small publishing houses to my query list.

No. No it doesn't but it was worth a punt.
