Many thanks for writing to me. I’ve had a chance to consider your query and unfortunately, I don’t think I’m quite the right agent for the book. I’ll regretfully pass, but I’m grateful for the opportunity and wish you the best success.

EQ 4/4 via form
PR 4/5; sent it an hour later (she asked for a synopsis, too, which I hate. Mine is a YA suspense... so she can basically ruin the entire book if she reads it.) Sigh. I still think asking for a partial is dumb. But maybe she'll reply faster... good or bad I'll either know she's liking it or not.

As an FYI, I have a mac and the form submission worked fine. If it wasn't working before, they've fixed that issue.

Note: I queried Ellen Levine, but Alexa Stark sent me the manuscript request (noting that she and Ellen co-agent select projects together). I informed Alexa that I have an offer of rep from another agent, so she has agreed to read and respond by the notification deadline.

Update (01/28/2018): Though Alexa Stark was the one to request the full manuscript, I received an email from Ellen Levine to set up a phone chat . . . hopefully for an offer!

Update 2 (02/02/2018): The phone chat from Ellen was an offer of representation! In the end, I had three offers of rep and a very difficult choice, but I am thrilled to say I accepted the offer from Ellen Levine.

I tried repeatedly to submit my query through the online submission form and it didn't work. Because I have a Mac I tried submitting through my husband's PC, and it worked fine. The online submission form doesn't seem to work with Macs -- at least not for me.
