"While I like the premise, and am impressed with the writing, I’m afraid I simply didn’t fall in love with the story. I hope another agent will find the requisite enthusiasm to take on this manuscript for you."

slushpilesadness -- Thanks, and congrats on the request for full. It's good to know that LGBTQ characters are a non-issue for her, but I still have no idea what a "Gay & Lesbian" book is or what would drive an agent to check that box. (I do know what a parenting/families, Western, and diet book is.) As an LGBT author, it makes me uncomfortable enough not to query her on my NF book - but I wish you luck with yours.

rtito3 - she also doesn't rep parenting/families, westerns or diet books. These are simply boxes she checks to let querying authors know what she can sell. Not, what her personal interests are. I have LGBTQ characters in my WF and it was a nonissue for her. She requested the full.

Her AAR page says she doesn't want "Gay & Lesbian"... what does that even mean?? LGBT nonfiction? LGBT characters? Either way - red flag, definitely not querying her.

what's up with her website? It seems very dated. Does this matter to those querying?

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!
