Response: 11/1/19 emailed to "undisclosed recipients" (assuming I'm part of a mass email .... somewhat deflating)
Thank you for querying The Lark Group about your book project. We have evaluated your query and regrettably, your project is not a right fit for our agency. We must be highly selective about the new projects we pursue.

Thank you again for thinking of us. Keep your chin up and keep swinging!

Sincerely,
The Lark Group

Accepted! 11/1/2019

I had two offers, and ultimately decided that Abby was the best agent for me. I felt so comfortable during our call (which was really important to me!) She is so professional and smart, and spoke about my book enthusiastically, and in depth. I highly recommend querying her!

Excited to query, but email keeps getting bounced as spam.
Aha! Was my own fault, as I had included first chapter. Query letter only is what is requested.

EQ: 5/23, 80K suspense/thriller
PR: 5/24, first five chapters and synopsis
ER: 6/13, personalized. She said there was a lot that was good and that I'm "clearly a talented writer," but she didn't fall in love with what she read.
