According to her email, she is not taking on new clients. "I'm not taking on new agency clients currently, but I do wish you the very best of luck."

I would have loved to work this agent, she is professional and kind. I did one round of querying in January and another beginning in April and she is the first agent to give me feedback on my manuscript. The agents who requested Fulls and then rejected didn't say anything more than they didn't love it enough. Heather even corresponded with me a little via email when I wrote to thank her for her feedback.

Thanks Patrick. You're right. The first part of what she says looks like she doesn't take anything unsolicited, but then she indeed goes onto say that she's interested in queries.

Pyrrhonist, what she means by that is that she does not want anyone sending a full manuscript without querying first.

KellyFriedman2013, Catsamoa, I think it means she only wants people she talked to to query her, i.e., from Twitter pitch activities or from in-person confrences/encounters...?
