EQ: 1/10/18 - 65000 memoir
FR: 3/19/2018 - says she has too many queries to review all

Same form rejection as below. If you have too many queries, why not just close queries for awhile?

Submitted 10/15
Rejected 10/16

They are fast, but the rejection letter contained the words "I can't:. I don't know about you, but I CAN, and I don't need an agent or an agency that CAN'T. I just see that as being an omen to the future.

I can't review your material
I can't be bothered to read the manuscript
I can't be bothered to edit
I can't be bothered to submit to publishers.....

These guys are off my list. I'm not doing business with someone who CAN'T.

Form rejection from someone else I assume in behalf of Frances.

Thank you for your interest in working with Frances Coady. We're very sorry to be sending this letter but on the basis of your query, we’re afraid we can’t consider your work. The high volume of submissions we receive forces us to be extremely selective, and we don't believe we'll be able to give your work the time and attention it deserves.

We wish you the best of luck in your search for representation.

EQ: Jan 10th, 2017
FR: Jan 11th, 2017
Declined: Jan 12th, 2017: Didn't connect enough to characters to be the perfect fit. Probably a form. 100K literary.

I am still unsure if the manuscript should be included with the query. It would be unusual.

EQ 7/16/17 Confused by submission instructions. Didn't send pages, just a query.

5/2/17 Received nice letter explaining that agent is swamped and cannot add to work load. Apologetic and wishing me luck.

I was also unsure (based on the website) whether I should attach the manuscript with the query, so in the query I wrote that I was unsure, and to be safe I did not attach (in case they automatically delete emails with attachments). Someone wrote back the next day and indicated that I should attach the manuscript.
