@wittylogin: Thanks for your response! Weirdly, it turns out she did receive my full without confirming in my case.

aetherquill - she emailed a confirmation of receipt when I emailed requested material to her in May.

Does anyone know whether Amy Bishop always confirms receipt of requested material? I had a full request from her on 5/16 (sent immediately) and never got a confirmation of receipt, but didn't think that was odd until now...

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.

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.
