Question for those who have submitted queries via email -- did you attach 50 pages, paste them in the body of the email, or letting your query do all the talking? Thanks!

11/1: Referred by a client of hers
11/17: Full Request
2/2: Kind and complimentary rejection, with lots of personalized notes and the opportunity to resubmit if I make revisions in the future. She even responded to my thank-you email, which I've never had an agent do before. Very nice and thoughtful.
