Originally queried Rachel in January 2019 after meeting her in June 2019. Never got a response, so I assumed it was a reject.

Then, this past January (2020) while participating in #IWSGPit, Rachel's assistant, who had control of her Twitter account during the Pitch session, liked my tweet which was an invitation to query. I sent the query as requested again just to see what, if anything, would happen. Still received no response.

When I queried her on 04/15/2020 I got a receipt of confirmation saying she was still reading at this time. So I think she's open for queries.

SF Space Opera, 103k words - I didn't realize "on hiatus" on Twitter might mean not accepting queries. I thought it meant she was on a Twitter hiatus! I guess we'll see.

Is she back open for queries? Her twitter profile says "on hiatus." Thanks so much.

Rachel is extremely kind and generous and seems to be a really hands-on, committed agent! Anyone would be lucky to work with her.

(alibryn, her website was recently changed and now shows she is only looking for women's fiction.)

Can anyone point me to where Rachel has mentioned looking for fantasy? It's not listed on her agency bio, nor her MSWL page, and I don't see her mentioning it on Twitter anywhere. Thanks.
