She is efficient and responsive. One of the few who actually replies to queries and requested material in a timely manner. So rare in this industry. I recommend her!

Lol! 40 minutes for a form rejection letter to come back. Oh well, it’s all good. On to the next query letter.

10/6 queried
10/7 They said, "Thank you very much for your query, which we have read with interest." (Sounds great... until,) Unfortunately, the project does not seem right for this agency, and we are sorry that we cannot offer to serve as your literary agent.
We also apologize for the form rejection. ETC...….

I actually appreciate the quick reply, letting me know they are not my type for this hard achievement. I need an agent to literally work for me and alongside me (because that's what I expect). I want a teammate.

"Thank you very much for your query, which we have read with interest. Unfortunately, the project does not seem right for this agency, and we are sorry that we cannot offer to serve as your literary agent.
We also apologize for the form rejection. The sheer number of queries we receive prevents personalization in order for us to respond in a timely fashion.
We wish you all the best in finding more suitable representation, encourage you to query widely, and thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your work."
