@cosmic congrats! I'm glad it worked! It's good to test the waters, and if the fish are biting, might as well go all in!

AuthorGGRyn...I think the recommended method is going in batches. But I've had an agent before, and I knew what and who I wanted. And my first batch, actually, of 15 agents in the first two days resulted in 8 full requests starting within 10 minutes of going out. So, I went all in. I went out with next batches: end of week, second week...mainly because I'm impatient but had a really strong, good feeling.
I guess...take that as you will. lol. Impatience.

76K A SFF

Got the same form letter the entire agency sends out:

"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."

Glad she selected my pitch but I doubt she really understood the genre. I've noticed she doesn't trek with many SFF stories.
