Very late entry, but thought I'd insert to help.

EQ - April 2017
Notification of offer - May 2017
Offer of rep - May 2017
Offer accepted.

Maura is extremely professional, courteous, and a pleasure to work with (in case you were wondering.) She's been an agent for a long time, and knows her stuff, so I'd definitely recommend querying (though I may be biased lol).

Thank you for submitting your query and giving me the opportunity to consider your work. Unfortunately, in today’s increasingly tough publishing market, I cannot offer you the support that you need for your project.

Though my limited time precludes me from recommending other specific agents, a good place to start would be the Association of Authors’ Representatives website.

Please do not allow this letter to discourage you. Many best-sellers have been passed on numerous times prior to being successfully published.

I wish you the best of luck finding an enthusiastic agent and publisher for your book.

4/17 emailed to notify offer of rep.
Full request, saying she'd read before my deadline, but I never heard back.
A week later, I signed with one of the offering agents.

I got a bounceback email saying it was undelivered, anyone else get this?

Though the rejection I got did seem like a form email, the form email itself does kind of look like she would recommend a specific agent in the rejection itself for certain manuscripts, so I guess it would be a silver lining for some folks if that is the case.
