Her response time seems to be within 30 days ( particularly if she's interested) , so I'd CNR'ed this. But just received a response today (12/06) for a query sent Oct. 21st. During that time, I rewrote parts of my book and switched genres, no longer fitting into her MSWL. Would have retracted but figured she'd already looked it over.

Inloft, I used her MSWL listing for info.

The website seems rather sparse on information. Are people just sending queries without any trappings?

OFFER OF REP: 6/25/19

After speaking with Zoe and getting a second offer, I am thrilled to say that I've signed with Zoe for my MG fantasy! She seems absolutely amazing, and had great referrals from her clients. Very excited to get to work with her!

It's been a long journey, guys. Halle-freaking-lujah!

Seemed to recall I'd queried her previously for another book (May of 2018) which seems surprising since she didn't request it and she receives so many queries.

Dear [my name],

Thank you for reaching out about another one of your novels. Based on what you’ve sent below, I’m afraid [title] is not the best fit for my list, either. I do appreciate you thinking of me again, though, and continue to wish you all the best finding the right agent for your work.

I met Zoe at the 2017 Unicorn Writer's Conference. She is as lovely as everyone here states. She was very enthusiastic about my novel in progress and gave good feedback and her business card. Fingers crossed!

1/4/2019 I accepted an offer from another agent but I have nothing but good things to say about Zoe.

She responded in 18 days. I'm thankful for the response. More personal than most I've read comments about from other agents.
