1/28 - sent email query
1/30 - request for proposal and 2 sample chapters (and told to expect 4-6 weeks for her to read it)
- Material sent within the hour of receiving her email request
1/31 - email stating she read everything and wanted to talk!
2/01 - Phone call and offer of representation! I accepted!

After speaking with her on the phone, I knew that Barbara was the right agent for me! A very intelligent, savvy, happy and friendly person. Barbara is extremely communicative about what is happening. She is awesome and I am extremely happy!

@moonklutz Maybe she doesn't find her web site useful. They *are* time consuming.

RJanet, Looks like she closed down her site (which wasn't being updated anyway.) Instead, refer to her AAR listing for details.

She spelled my name wrong. Then:

"Thank you for your interest in The Rosenberg Group. Please know that I appreciate and respect the time, effort, and imagination you have put into crafting Love Thy Neighbor. Due to the volume of submissions I receive, time does not permit me to respond to your work in a more personal matter. I have read your query and am sorry to write that I am declining interest in this project."

I looked up websites. The only info I could find was on Twitter. All other sites could not be found.

I’m just not really convinced the first 3 chapters can really give you the right hook you need to be invested in a project, but I’m sure she knows what she wants. Here’s to hoping!
