Is this agency's website for real? It's like a business card.

Anyone know if she's a no-response-means-no agent? Haven't heard back on an old query. Thanks!

They're updating their website. I'm only guessing what each agent is looking for based on the reports here on QT.

Does anyone know if a pass from Cheryl is a pass from the others too?

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to consider your work for representation. Unfortunately, I’m afraid that I will not be the right agent for your project. I am currently taking on new clients quite selectively, focusing exclusively on work that really stirs my passions, and I don’t feel that I could represent your work with the requisite enthusiasm in this tough market.

I wish you much success with finding representation and publication, and again thank you for considering me.
