Wow. Marlene follows me on Twitter and I noted relevant reasons for why I believed I might be a good fit. Spent about 2 hours perfecting the submission, and received a form rejection in about five minutes. LOL.

Definitely rejection whiplash on this one. Be prepared for it when you submit!

Submission checked three boxes on "what I'm looking for now" list. Received rejection in less than two hours. Form letter.

Seems focus is on women's fiction, subject matter. Check website before submitting for what they want today.

My rejection was actually received 5/7/19 but for some reason QueryTracker won't let me select a date other than 5/6 (the date I submitted it) or today (5/9); no idea why that is, but the rejection actually arrived on 5/7. ¯_(?)_/¯
Anyway, it was a very kindly-worded form letter that included language about my query not being a fit for the agency, not just the individual agent. Onward and upward.

Fastest response I've ever gotten for a full request. Would query again based on the speed alone!

She responds to both queries and submissions in a swift, efficient manner. She seems really nice. I would definitely query her again.
