EQ 11/16/16 (Diplomatic Immunity)
ER 12/21/16 (Passed-not a good fit for their list.) I'll try Margaret with Di in February 2017.

Congrats Locogus, though 110 K is the max for any debut fiction in any genre.

Well, after a couple months, I am closing this query down. recap: she asked for a full manuscript the same day I sent the query, but after two nudges I guess it's a no.

KristenH: I appreciate your thoughts. Yes, 120k is pushing it, but it's the story I got and I'm sticking to it. :)
I have plenty more where that came from, so I will keep plugging away. Maybe an agent will take something else in the future and want to revisit this later.
