If you want to be put out of your misery quickly, Bookends is the agency to query. I queried Jessica Faust earlier and had a rejection within 2 hours but her form letter told me to feel free to query another agent at Bookends. So I queried Amanda and had a rejection within 4 hours. No hard feelings.

Funny thing, in submitting this comment I first typed "ER", I've gotten so many of them lol

Update: After reading my full ms, Amanda declined to offer representation. But she did offer some very helpful paragraphs on what did not appeal to her. I'm now taking the ms in a different direction which I know will render a better story.
If agents read these, Thanks, Amanda!

PHCrockett, her genres come from her QueryManager query form, which is usually more up to date since the agents can easily change that themselves instead of having to wait for a web master to do it for them.
