Form rejection, very brief but kind. Disappointing but I really appreciate the quick response and the fact that she responds to all queries!!

@KateInnes

Submissions are always in standard manuscript formatting, which is double spacing.

I'm just considering sending a query to Molly Ker Hawn, but I'm unclear when they say attach the first 10 pages to the email, if these must be double-spaced pages. Does anyone know? Many thanks!

Auto-response email says: "Thank you for your email. I aim to respond to all submissions within two weeks of receipt, so if you don't hear from me within two weeks, feel free to resend your query."

I appreciate this kind of information.
