Has anyone queried more than one agent at this agency? With success?
I know they frown on this, but I find it hard to believe they share all incoming queries with fellow agents.

R. Loved the story, plot, & characters. The magic wasn't fully explained the way she liked.

Unfortunately, after careful consideration, I’ve decided I’m not the best agent to represent this book. I’m simply not enthusiastic enough about my ability to sell this work to offer representation. I wish you the best of luck with placing this book and in your future endeavors.
