Thulsa_doom - Let's hope the agent is a Steampunk fan too! Crossing my fingers for us.

Haaaa, it’s the 13th March but basically my query and partial request is EXACTLY the same as the last commenter. Guess we have an assistant who loves Steampunk! Let’s hope it translates further...

On her Timeline, it shows the last batch of queries she's responded to are earlier than 11.27.17, putting her about 90 days behind

Has anyone received a requested or rejection from this agent lately? I queried her a long while back (longer than two months ago) and still haven't heard anything. I was under the impression that she responds to everyone, so I'm wondering if maybe mine got lost in the 2017 mix. Does anyone happen to have any insight? Thanks for your help!

Thanks so much for thinking of me, but this one’s just not quite right for my list. Due to a very full workload, I have to be extremely selective about pursuing new projects.

Please know that this is a very subjective business and that tastes range widely among agents. Someone else may feel very differently—you deserve someone who is passionate about your work and is confident about their ability to position it.

Best of luck with this, and thank you so much for thinking of me.

The Writers House website says to send an Synopsis only, but she wrote me back requesting the first ten pages pasted as part of the Query E-mail. Per her guidelines on Publishers Marketplace, she wants only the first ten pages, and no synopsis. It seems that her guidelines are different than Writers House's, so include those first 10 pages!

It was also very kind of her to send me an E-mail requesting them.
