But she's on Maternity leave for the rest of the summer so I will send it to her when she's back (or let her know of other offers, per her email)

Received auto reply: For all inquiries regarding representation: if you have not done so already, please email your query letter with the first 50 pages of your manuscript or proposal attached as a Microsoft Word document (docx.) so that we may best evaluate your submission. Please note that we receive many queries, and we endeavor to respond to each as promptly as possible.

All other inquiries will be responded to separately.

Thank you for your patience!

For cbazay- I used this link to publisher's marketplace for the submissions guidelines, not sure if that's current though. https://www.publishersmarketplace.com/members/JillGrin/

Got back to me super quickly asking to attach the first 50 (so send those as an attachment if you're querying them!). Ended up rejecting saying while she liked the setup, writing, and characters, didn't have the "gut" feeling to rep it. Oh well.

I just want to say that I signed with Katelyn earlier this year. The project she signed me for just sold, and in the interim, she sold another project of mine in 2 weeks to a "Big Five". Katelyn and her team are fabulous and answer all of my many newbie questions within a reasonable amount of time. I never feel out of the loop or ignored and dispensable as I had with previous agents. If you doubt querying her, don't. All of her clients will tell you the same. She is my game-changer. Don't let their lack of a website deter you (it's been like that for years as they turned new authors into bestselling ones).
