Hello ___,
Thank you for your inquiry. I am sorry but we will not seek to represent you. Your story, with the backdrop of a cult, is not one that fits in with the genre we are looking for.
Best of luck,
Frances

Running into issues with their website this morning. I had it opened up fine for directions yesterday but went to check something this morning and it's not connecting to a server. Nothing was mentioned on Twitter, so I'm just going to submit and see what happens.

Also didn't receive a confirmation email yet that I had submitted.
