I find that weird, writervfp. How can you give exclusivity on a partial when most agents you query automatically get a partial? Does she think you're the only agent you queried, or you only query one agent per month? A full, sure but...

16/march - QUERY SENT (just the query letter, no pages)
12/june - Partial request for the first 3 chapters, asked for exclusivity and gave a three week estimate for reading time
13/june - Sent an email letting her know that I can't offer exclusivity due to other agents having my manuscript, also attached the requested materials in case she was still willing to consider it
19/june - Rejection stating that she didn't connect enough with the pages to request more so I do believe that she still considers requested materials even if they aren't exclusives!

@ohotnitza - They don't ask for sample pages with the initial query. It seems like she usually asks for a partial (3 chapters) if she's interested based on the query.

I was very confused with this Agency's process. It mentions a one page query letter in the form instructions, but I didn't see anywhere on the form for including a sample, or guidelines for a sample in their form's text. I'm not sure if they wanted one or not...

I got a partial request but it asks for temporary exclusivity. I already have a couple fulls and a partial out though… should I send it and say that but offer to refrain from sending out new queries until I hear back?
