1/3: EQ via their online form. Received confirmation of receipt.
After receiving other agent feedback, I made some major edits to my opening chapters. Is there a way to contact Ms. Bauman and resend my sample pages? She hasn't reached my query yet. [Update 1/18]: I asked her about this on Twitter and she recommended I just requery through the website form. I figured I could share in case others wind up in a similar situation.

@ Belle_91 - yeah, I think everyone got just a form. She has a very nice form, it really does make you feel like it's somewhat personalized and encouraging, but alas, it's not. Oh well.

Form like everyone else's. Said she was excited about my query and the premise of my book. I thought the part about the passion of my writing coming through was maybe personal. However, after seeing LightofBeauty's comments, I realize it was not. :(

I feel like it's a long shot, but at least she's one of so few agents from this agency who actually seems nice and approachable and actually uses social media lol. It does count for something!

ER: 1/16

A very form-like rejection but it sounded personalized, she said nothing but very complimentary things about my query and the manuscript and was very excited about its premise. I assume this part was the personalization specific to my story: she noted that I clearly worked hard on this project and that my passion is clearly there in my writing, and she commended me for a lot of what this book delivers on, but despite all that, (then comes the form, same as what others have said below) she just couldn't connect with it "In a meaningful way" enough to represent it. Erica is very kind and sweet, even if it's a rejection, and even if it's a form just with a tiny bit of personalization, her loveliness shines through!

Officially reopen to queries according to her Twitter: "If you tried to send me a query this morning, sorry for the delay! My submission form is back up on the Aevitas site, and I am officially open to queries for 2018."

ER: 01/16 - Very nice form... mentions liking the writing and premise but not connecting enough to be the best advocate

Seemed to be a form rejection, but she mentioned she was "excited by my query" but "struggled to connect with the manuscript in a meaningful way." Ah, well. I appreciate her kindness.

ER: 1.16.18 somewhat personalized--could see it being one of several forms she uses, but it was kind and useful information!
