Laurie was very nice with her response about my work.

Was referred to her in 2014 in a request to hook me up with an editor to get my manuscript ready. She responded, asked for more material, dropped the ball, responded to a nudge, requested the same material to give to an editor, no response after that. Got the impression she didn't want to impact her relationship with the person who referred me, but it was clear there wasn't sufficient interest.

is it sad that I'm pretty happy the letter was addressed to me even if it was a form?

Just a heads-up: I sent a snail query to Ms. Liss on 05/04/15 and this morning it was returned to me with a "Return to sender; unable to forward" sticker. She's still listed on the Sterling Lord Literistic website. Anyone know if she's in the process of switching agencies?

No problem Ayesha. Good luck.

Thanks angelscribe. I sent off my sub package on 1-3-13. I'm acquainted with one of her clients, who also inspired me to finish this project. I hope she goes for it as it is similar to said client, but still very different. We'll see. She seems to be very selective, but I would die if she signed me.

Ayesha, I sent a query to Laurie for Chain Reaction on 12/12/12. I've heard back from her with a rejection--she doesn't have sufficient enthusiasm to take it on. I'll try Douglas next month with CR.
