Thank you, dorrie6.

FWIW, Patrick, I *vastly* prefer it when agents use QueryManager, because the forms make it incredibly clear what they want in the submission, and I know for sure they received it without having to worry about email blips. Huge thumbs up for QueryManager, I personally wish all agents used it.

109K YA science fantasy, This feels like a long shot, but at least we can try, right?

Edit: Haven't heard back yet, which seems odd given the data. Hmmm.

Sorry you don't like the forms. I'm always trying to improve them, though, so what is it that they don't do that you would like to see added?

As part of the form, authors are asked to include their entire query letter just as they would in an email, so I'm not sure what can be done in an email that can't be done in a form. The advantage of the form is the agent gets the query letter, but also other more precise information that they can use to make faster decisions.

EQ; 8/16/19 - satire, a Friday night about 8.30pm her time.
Got a negative response at 9am on the very next day. Saturday morning. Nice letter but full review in that time? I think not. I don't think she even looked at it. I really don't think these submission forms do authors any favours. They are so unbelievably restrictive and if you produce something even remotely out of the box it makes it nigh on impossible. Thank you to those agents who simply just allow an email.

Nice form rejection. I knew on the surface my MG Fantasy may appear to be similar to something she already represents, but took a chance anyway.

This is rich! "... but unfortunately, after careful consideration, I have decided to bow out." Yeah after 22 minutes of careful consideration.
