Thank you for your interest in working with Duvall Osteen. We're very sorry to be sending this letter but on the basis of your query, we’re afraid Duvall can’t represent your work. The high volume of submissions she receives forces her to be extremely selective, and she doesn’t believe she’ll be able to give your work the time and attention it deserves.

Sent the query to the general email they provided on Jan 7. Form rejection letter after 36 days. They did not specify how may pages to send, so I sent the entire manuscript. Seemed to imply that they only read the query though..... "We're very sorry to be sending this letter but on the basis of your query, we’re afraid she can’t consider your work. The high volume of submissions....etc etc... etc..."

No warm & fuzzy as in some cases below....

Although she said she was not the right person to represent my work, Ms. Osteen wrote me the nicest rejection letter I've ever received--filled with warmth and encouragement. Whoever gets to work with her will enjoy a good relationship, I think.

Not accepting new clients. At least, that's what she told me. Neither is Nicole Aragi.

She wound up passing on my full mss, but she couldn't have been nicer or more professional. I hope one of y'all gets to work with her!! Good luck.
