Joanne Wyckoff read my mss and gave me detailed notes on how to rework the whole thing. I will then resubmit to her.

The website only lists non-fiction for Joanne. Is she not accepting fiction anymore?

EQ: 10/12
ER: 11/30

Though my project is on the literary side (upmarket espionage), she said it did not fit her list. "I don't represent espionage novels like the one you have written."

I submitted an EQ on 4/14/14. Heard back on 4/16/14. I mentioned I chose her because of her non-fiction interests in food and personal narrative. My women's novel is in first person and the MC is a foodie. Joanne responded on 4/16/14 saying 'after careful consideration, we have decided not to pursue your project.' Made me feel better that it was just the four dreaded words, but perhaps, in light of the response being two days later, this is her standard response.

Not quite sure where to put this, since the agent isn't listed here but is on the website...

Sent Carol a query letter 3/18/12 and today received a request for a proposal... my first such request from an unsolicited query letter! Keeping my fingers crossed, which is hard to do while typing.
