Agency's guidelines are contradictory. The 1st paragraphs requests 5-10 pp., then lower down, requests only 5 for fiction.

Apologized for long wait, otherwise appeared to be a form letter. Addressed from Dara Hyde's assistant. Seems she's getting around to a query backlog.

She requested 50 pages but ultimately passed because she didn't feel strongly enough about the characters. The setting is southeastern Louisiana. Characters are creole and Italian-American. The novel's current title is A Toy in Blood.
