*** Confusing information on QT

Patrick --

Under Caitlin McDonald's Main page on QT, Query Guidelines say "Please include the query letter, synopsis, and the first ten pages of your novel pasted into the body of the email."

However, that same Main page says "NO" to email or snail mail queries, but rather asks for an Online Submission.

And THANK YOU for asking!

Holy cats I'm excited. :-D Worth the wait. She let me know this morning that she received the ms and when I might expect to hear back. Very professional and helpful.

4/27/18: Emailed to let her know about offer of representation.

5/1/18: Polite, regretful step aside. She says she loved what she’d read thus far but wouldn’t be able to meet the deadline.
