So many *Required* sections on her query manager. Feels honestly like punishing the author for wanting to query her.

I was honestly confused by this. I thought she was a cozy mystery and romance agent. The form took forever too.

For all of the hoops this woman puts you through, I've only seen one author get an offer of representation.
I know everyone thinks, "I'll be the exception." And I hope you are.
But don't be blown away when you get a rejection a week later.
I won't waste the time again

A short note that said the project wasn't a good fit, but she enjoyed my writing and asked to be kept in mind for any revised versions or new series. So, that was very encouraging. Kind of her to take time.
