December 1st: Anna is not looking for more MG projects, but her intern might be interested :)
FR: same day, from Andrea.
December 8th: Offer of rep from Andrea!!!!!

Update: I ended up signing with a different agent, but I would absolutely encourage you to submit to Andrea. She's new, but passionate. Her future clients are very lucky.

I see here that she's not taking on MG right now. Hopefully, she'll refer me to her intern.

Per email she's only taking on author-illustrator projects at the moment. Genres listed here include MG but she's not taking MG right now. She has an intern (Thornton Blease) looking at manuscripts in other categories.

khroochang, make sure you're not using a lot of red flag words in your query and that you are sending from a reputable email service. Those are the usual reasons for a query being mistaken for spam. Too many links can also cause problems. You're not using any profanity in the query are you? Hopefully your book isn't about a door-to-door viagra salesman, because if that's the case, you're doomed.

My email bounced back. "550 High probability of spam."
Of all the nerve! :)
