This agent has a long history of not responding. She has only one deal/sale to her name on Publisher's Marketplace, but has been accepting queries here since 2011. I am beginning to think some agents must be supernatural creatures who feed off of the hopes and dreams written into query letters but don't actually have clients or sales.

Psychological Thriller Graphic Novel - 36 pages.

Left me with encouraging words. Although I've shelved this project, will definitely query applicable material to her again!

Email Query: 7.13
Full Request: 7.14, sent same day
Rejection: 8.23 - praised writing, but didn't "quite connect to the heart and aim of the story."

She was the most personable of all the agents I have interacted with. I'll fondly think of my hope-filled month. :)
