Ms. Olswanger was very nice in a email response, saying she is only accepting "author-illustrator" works...not text-only manuscripts. I loved her personal touch in the brief but nice/cordial message she took time to send (despite so many queries she likely receives in a day). She feels like a genuine, stand-up kind of person and must be a great professional to work with...

The reject of my full was blunt and not very nice-- so much so, it made me chuckle!

offered representation 11/2020 (we started working together on revising the book in August, and representation was offered when the story is in a good shape in November. I love working with her. Anna always replies email fast, she has a sharp vision and always gave me fun/constructive suggestions).

Why does she seem to have only a personal website and not an agency one???
