I received an R&R from another agent in September, so I e-mailed Katelyn to ask if she had read yet, and if she would mind waiting to read the revised version. No response.

3 days later for my women's fiction - Thank you so much for sending me your work. I’m afraid, however, that I am going to have to pass up the opportunity to represent it. I am currently taking on new clients quite selectively, focusing exclusively on work that really stirs my passions. I honestly don’t feel that I could represent your work with the requisite enthusiasm in this tough market, but hopefully another agent will feel differently. I do wish you the best of luck with it.

Offer of Rep notification: 8/25/16
ER: 8/29/16, amusing form rejection that said she 'hoped another agent would feel differently.' Which is amusing because one most certainly has! ;)

7/1/16 EQ (Requery Venom)
7/5/16 ER (Passed, not enthusiastic, real selective). Will try her with Chain Reaction this summer or new ms this fall.

Congrats Zach!

7/27/16: 7/25/16 EQ (Requery Chain Reaction)
7/27/16 ER (Same response for Venom.) Will try Jill next month for Venom with better luck with revised query.

Does anyone know if she responds to all queries? I queried 9/28 and still haven't heard anything

I queried in Nov., sent an update in Feb. when I received offers of rep, and this morning received a request for a full. Don't know what happened to my email, but just goes to show agents are busy and emails don't always get looked at in order.

I queried via snail mail, but I used the website's address (didn't see Patrick's comment). Apparently they aren't getting mail forwarded, as I never heard back. (Sent on 2/14/15.)

Profile Update: New postal address. I was contacted by the agency about the update, even though their website still shows the old address.
