EQ: 9/30
FR: 10/1 (from Deidre and Heather, asking for a 2 week exclusive)
nudged 10/17 after exclusive period was over, encouraged to widen submission as they still hadn't read

EQ: 11/7 to Heather Tebbs attention
FR: 11/8 from Kristy Hunter stating that Deidre Knight would love to see the full. I guess they share the queries. Either way, I'm excited...and also confused...but mostly excited!!!
Confirmation email received 11/9/17. Yay!

So, you guys, I emailed and asked if my query even made it to Heather's eyes, since, you know, they have different genre preferences, and this was the reply: Dear [my name],As the submissions coordinator, I simply respond on the agent’s behalf and do not make judgements based on my personal list.

Best wishes,
This actually made me laugh. You're telling me that she reads queries and instead of pushing a button for a form rejection, she takes the time to stop everything and tell an assistant to send a form rejection? Lol. Hope this helps someone else.

I actually believe Kristy Hunter is a computer and not a person.

Just like everyone else, I got a form from Kristy Hunter. I get that agents are busy and need readers to vet for them or whatever, but shouldn't those readers have the same interest in books? My book is YA fantasy, which was on Heather's list, but Kristy (apparently) doesn't like that genre. Of course she rejected me! What a waste of time.

I'm one of the dots with no response. Does anyone know what it means to be skipped over? Is it more likely my query didn't go through or does one agent pass the query on to another at this agency? Thank you for your help!

Submitted Emailed Query 8.23.17

Not a pleasant experience. I submitted to Heather. (08/01/2017) AKA: My subject was: Query: for Heather. I was answered by Kristy. (08/02/2017) It'd be fine if they accepted the same things, but they do not, hence why I did not submit to Kristy.

Heather accepts - Urban Fantasy, Women’s Fiction, Upmarket Fiction, Mystery, Suspense, ****Thriller****, Young Adult, and Middle Grade.

Kristy Accepts - women’s fiction, mystery, historical romance, romance, young adult, and middle grade.

I write adult thrillers with female protagonists. *sigh* Of course Kristy isn't going to like it! *duh*

ER 7/25/17 (Passed from Kristy Hunter--not a good fit.) Will try Janna with Venom again later next month.

That's interesting CraneHana.
