We do not accept unsolicited proposals or manuscripts. Though we deeply respect every author's work, due to the volume of submitted queries we can only respond to projects we are interested in pursuing. Please send your query to the below address with a brief description of your book, its uniqueness in the marketplace, and why you and only you can write it. Do not send attachments.

This means closed to queries, right?

5/6/2018: Sent response noting that her first priority was serving current authors. I take that as a "pass", although it was not explicit.

2 requests in the last 30 days on the QT Timeline are marked "Not specified" for genre. This is not helpful to other QT members! (submitted on 3/13 and 3/18).
If you have not entered your Genre and Wordcount data in the QT system, would you please take a minute to do so?
Thank you!

Guys, this has never happened to me before. I've learned not to get too excited though when an agent requests partials/fulls after only reading the query. Hopefully she likes the sample! I'm going to go enjoy feeling desired for a bit... ;)

...annnnd, rejected. 3.22.18 Didn't connect to characters or writing style. At least it was a quick turnaround!

Stated she's not taking new clients right now...but maybe this is just a nice way of saying she's not taking me as a new client? Anyway, just glad to get a response either way : )
