Submitted fantasy/crime June 2020, nudged in September. Rejection from 'Joanna' said they enjoyed it but Karolina was not the right agent for it.

More or less the same form rejection others have posted, but with a very kind line of personalised positive feedback.

Concerning the submission portal on their site. Do not click the link to Brightfount, rather the one below it that says 'submission'. Also check ad blocker, mine froze up until I allowed ads. Note-They do not run ads, but the ad detector treats the submission page as such. Hope that helps.

BillGinTexas, This is the first I've heard of it. I took a look and it does seem like it has some problems.

04/30/2019 Curtis Brown Group is utilizing Brightfount submission engine. I gave up after waiting almost 10 minutes to move from the first submission page to the second.

Patrick, is anyone else experiencing this?

Wow! I had long considered this a CNR but after 200+ days I received a polite form e-mail. Presumably from an assistant, though Christopher Archibald may be a jr agent or hold another title.

"Thank you for sending us (title) and for giving us the opportunity to consider your work. Unfortunately, we cannot make you an offer of representation as we do not feel your work is right for our list. Regrettably, due to the sheer volume of material to this office, we are unable to provide you with a more detailed response. We wish you luck in your search for an agent. Thank you for the opportunity of considering the work. Best wishes, Christopher Archibald On behalf of Karolina Sutton."
