Submitted query on the 18th. Ms. Alvarez emailed me on the 19th saying it would not fit with her focus. She took the time to help me understand why in a followup email which has helped me change the direction of my agency search. I could not be more pleased with my interaction with her. She is truly someone who seeks to help authors as she can. Thank you!
