Met her at Killer Nashville conference. Very personable and provided great feedback on the opening pages during a roundtable read. Had great advice on the agent panel as well.

"Thank you for your submission.
Your work has been carefully reviewed by the agent you queried, and it has been determined that Holloway Literary will not be pursuing representation of your manuscript. We regret sending you this information in a form letter; however, due to the volume of emails we receive daily it is almost impossible to send customized letters to every author. Thank you again for thinking of Holloway Literary, and we wish you every success in your writing career."

I got a reply asking me to resubmit with an author's bio including where I live (I included that in the closing of my query), my occupation, and publishing credits. The answers to those are "currently unemployed" and "none" soooooo honestly I might just write this one off.
