Dawn is a great agent. Hope querying writers don’t fall for the whole “cancel culture” Beth is apart of!

Sent a revision in Feb; she asked me to take my time with revisions and re-query/re-send in summer instead.

Laura Zats received a C&D this afternoon. The lawyers also sent one Foz Meadows, but that one got "recalled." The story's been picked up by Publishers Weekly and Author Beware.

So Update. Dawn had lawyers send a letter of desist to Beth Phelan, Kelly van Sant and Isa Sterling for people talking about how she handled clients. Just and FYI

Please see this thread about a Tweet from Dawn last night. I might think twice about querying her: https://twitter.com/kaytaylorrea/status/1266442858610823168

"Thanks so much Cindy, I love queries with such a personal touch. I fear I’m the wrong fit for this story, so I’m going to step aside. I do appreciate being included either way."
